You can try cleaning the contacts on the back of the GPS that connect to the power dock, with an eraser. Then, brush away the rubber dust from the eraser.

Re: Magellan Roadmate 760

It could also be a problem with the power cord. I replaced my auto power supply cord and the unit powers on and stays on just fine. Now if it could just find the satellite.....

Hung up magellan roadmate 760

You'll need to call customer service at 866-868-2259.

They should be able to tell you how to do an "emergency reboot". You also need to make sure you have the latest "firmware" before installing any updates.

How can I get the code to unlock the European map Magellan Roadmate 760

You will need to pay Magellan for the authorization code, they are the only one that can provide you with an EU code for your Magellan 760 RoadMate. Sometimes Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc can also assist. They have direct connection with Magellan to assist issues with Magellan products. Good Luck

I need an upgrade for my magellan Roadmate 760

You can download an upgrade for this unit from the Magellan website for free. Maps can be upgraded but they cost about $80, and that doesn't seem worth it to me. See if that works for you.

I brought my Magellan roadmate 760 0n 3-9-06. How do I get it up dated. The last time I try to use it It would't talk to me.

You can go on Magellan's website and they have software downloads for the operating system. If you want new maps you have to pay about $80, also available on the website, but I don't think it's worth it for this unit.

Just push the antenna firmly back into the base; it pivots on a coax connector.

The antenna is removable.

Unit will not acquire the satellite signs

FYI ....My Roadmate 760 would not aquire a signal, I went to diagnostic screen and found it was detecting/tracking 0/0 satellites. Held the plugged in unit out the window and within 10 seconds was tracking 7 satellites! Turned out my 1999 Olds Silhouette Van has a anti-glare filter inside the factory windshield that blocks GPS signals.My wifes 2001 Chevy Impala also has same type filter. Check your windshield, filter is visible inside glass to within about three inches of edges of glass. Worth a look.
