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 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.

The weakness of the 760 is the cradle. Is the power wire or the cradle loose or wiggles? You may need to buy a new cradle if that is the case. They are expensive. I soldered my power wire right into the cradle and it worked fine.

Turns off when i move the gps slightly.....

I'm going to guess you need a new cradle. The pin inside mine broke off in the female end of the car adapter, resulting in no power. If it's loose & periodically making contact, it would power on & off before finally going off for good. Cradles can be had on ebay for around $20.

Magellan GPS does not turn on

I've got one that has a problem with the power connector. Look on the adapter thingy (has the female power socket along with the usb socket). With a pin, wiggle the center power pin. If it is loose, this is the problem. Carefully use a knife to open the adapter thingy (it's glued together). Go to Radio Shack/Fry's and get a replacement power female socket that solders to the little PC board in the adapter thingy. This will fix it. Allen
