I had the same problem with myRm 700, too. Solution : connect your unit into the AC power pack . Turn it on. Then reinsert an address into the unit while plugged into the 110 volt ac wall outlet power supply. You may need to repeat this operation a few times.
Also, used mine in my 18-wheeler using a ac to dc power inverter. It seemed to work everytime. Note make sure the ac to dc inverter you by has enough dc output to feed your Gps all the juice it needs. That ac to dc inverter can be used to run other ac powererd appliances, too.

I just bought a magellan roadmate 1412. I live in Canada. I wanted a gps with Canadian maps. The box and ads said this product DOES HAVE CANADIAN MAPS. When I turned it on there was NO selection for Canada...

Go to User option, choose region, select Canada. I have this unit. My problem is I can't input correct street address or street number. You can input 1500 but not 700 Ste-Catherine, Montreal, QC. The support told me to buy a better one. What I am going to do with this one?

All navigation units are GPS Receivers - that is - they receive satellite signals. So, no there is no difference.

at the user menu press the "-" zoom out key the "+" zoom in key and the repeat button which is on top of your unit. Once your in the "hidden" menu, select reset user data.. your unit will reset and everything will be clean. If your trying to delete specific addresses I would use software to sync up and explore your MRM's files.

Yes, you can reset.

Access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". Also, if your having GPS problems, you can also select reset GPS data.

Post again if this doesn't work for you.

Magellan Roadmate 700 freezes up

Try resetting user data. At user menu, press "-" zoom out and repeat button at same time. select reset user data, it will reboot automatically, then check to see if it is any better. If not, hopefully the software came with your unit and you can re-install it. Good luck and let me know if you need help with the installation. Daniel

Steve, In this case I would replace the Hard drive. But, since you probably don't have spare HDD's lying around.. do you atleast have the Software version? Some CD that came with it hopefully. If you do, then you may be able to stay alive here. Once your system boots to the user screen.. press + and repeat key at the same time.. "secret" menu now. ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!! Select NAND FLASH FORMAT.. The unit will shut down after formatting. start up your software installer on computer. plug usb in.. and power on unit. This fix isn't %100, but it's the best shot you have. Otherwise you've gotta send it down here to Texas (where magellan repair is) and pay for the new hard drive. OR.. you could call customer service and see what they have to say. you'll probably be transferred to overseas.. --good luck with that -Dan
