Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
A few things cause this to occur.
low battery power ( charge fully on AC )
no or poor view of the sky
Burned out SIIRF chip
The latter can occur when the unit is plugged in at the point where you start up the car, a spike can be transferred to the chip. all else works exscept satellite connection.
One should always connect GPS after engine is started, same with mobile phones.
If the latter, the unit is expensive to repair rewuiring a new motherboard. try getting it repaired under insurance, you dropped it, is the the entry for insurance damage description
