Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I cant get the roadmate 700 to turn on at all there is no flash card in the back or what ever goes into the slot in the back is missing, is that needed? also even when i plug in the usb cord to the computer the computer does no reconizie it
The flash card hole is supposed to be empty - all you need should be on the hard disk BUT the first Roadmate 700 I purchased was empty i.e. no software loaded. The second failed due to bad power connection, the third worked but was factory refurbished! what a crass organisation Magellan is!!!
Try fiddling with the power connection that goes into the cradle that the unit sits on. The power connection is ultra sensitive. BUT, if you've only just bought the unit then you are in luck - return it and get your money - back Magellan Support is extremely poor.
I am binning my Roadmate and getting a Tomtom720 Go series with maps and cameras preloaded - it auto updates when it is on its cradle attached to my PC/internet.
Bin the Magella - 4 years of problems!!!!
