Re: GPS IN DEMO MODE
First off you may want to check what kind of SD card is in the slot. it's underneath the rubber. I haven't worked with the 2000's all that much so I'm not certain if your concern could be fixed by changing a setting in the settings menu of your 2000. Look for the word Demo everywhere!

There is no longer any map updates or accessories available for the Roadmate 2000.
Magellan has obsoleted this unit and no longer has support for it or any accessories.
I talked to them online as well as on the phone.
So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.
And there are no sites online that has any software to upgrade maps for this unit.
So keep your plugs because they work on other units, but take a baseball bat and hit a home run with your roadmate 2000.
Thats all its worth now.
Sometimes these will go into demo mode for no apparent reason. You can access the diagnostics screen by holding the map/music button while powering up. Be careful which buttons you press in this mode - select only the on-screen buttons, not the hard-buttons as they adjust brightness and contrast. Select the correct operating mode and power the unit off, then on.
i use to own a 700, i advise you to get the new magellan mastreo 4000 or higher,i did my research and the magellan700 roadmate is no longer being serviced.that is what the magellan website has had showed and someone on here also has said it and they start to have alot of problems.i own now a mastreo 4000 so far so good no problems.
Go to Simultor option in options sections and touch the screen multiple times and you may see "simulate" button activated and then in the status should show "simulation stopped" and that when this damn thing is back to normal operation. Hope this helps. I was in the mode for last few days and no help anywhere online.
