My gps freezes when on speedo


Okay. I have to explain what happens when you use the speedometer option. While it is off, the GPS use using less cycles per minute to get the location from the satellites and sometime from ground beacons. When in speedo mode, it now needs more processor, memory, graphics speed and the power needed for the receiver. Now the unit is running about twice the cycles per minute to provide an accurate location to judge your speed.
How to work around this.
Best answer: Dont use this option! Its simple and you dont have to burn your noodle worrying about it.
2. If you must use it, then go into your display and map options and turn the map details and quality down. This will free up memory and CPU speed.
3. Turn tracking off. This will free up memory and CPU speed.
4. Use Garmin's mapping program to only load necessary map locations.This will free up memory space.
5. Be sure you are updated to the latest map data and firmware.
6. This can also be caused by the location of the GPS in the vehicle. On the main screen of most Garmin's, you press and hold on the corner near the icon showing the GPS signal. It will go to a more detailed screen of the satellites and signal strength. Stay in one place in an open area like a parking lot. Let the GPS locate itself first. Then relocate it where you can easily see it and you see 40% of signal or more from 4 or more satellites.

Freezing at the "HP iPAQ Pocket PC start-up" and won't advance any further. (think that it pushed up against something in my bag, and perhaps maxed the memory?). Not at a point where ActiveSync can...


I had same problem. Finally got mine sorted!!

Try a full reset. Hold the quick launch button and the rotate screen button simultaneously (top and bottom of 4 buttons on left of device) and then use stylis to press in the reset button (on top edge just left of SD card slot). Keep depressed until it resets then release the 2 buttons and then release reset button.

It will appear to do the same but it tells you at the bottom it is doing a reboot or something. After 30 secs or so it then goes past and gets to the screen align screen.

You might loss settings but it worked for me

''no signal'' message on blue screen after watching for 10-30 min


First try another signal input like a DVD player or other source, is the signal displayed ok? Then you have lost the signal on one input from whatever the device is.

Screen froze up


"If your Quest locks up....on rare occasions, your Quest may freeze or lock up. In this case, reset the Quest by pressing the unit's Power key and the IN key at the same time. This will turn off your Quest. The unit will operate normally when you turn it on again."

Loss of signal


I have the same problem(and others too)
After it freezes, I have to turn it off and turned on again. Sometimes it works. I think, that these problems can be fixed only in repair shops (Dealers) only, prohabs that's the whole idea...
I paid over $1,000.00 when it came out. I wouldn't pay for it $200.00 if I would know.....
There are units on market today, that cost less than $200.00 and do better jod than Magelan 700!

Good luck! drj.

Loss of signal


Leslie, Not updating your GPS isn't going to cause signal loss. Push the options key, go to configuration, then to diagnostics, scroll down.. select reset gps. it will say it takes 5 min. to relocate.. etc. see if that fixes it. If it doesn't fix then when you restart your unit and the user menu appears. Press "-" key and "repeat" button at the same time.. then select clear gps user data or.. user data gps... something to that nature.. Hope this works out for ya. -Dan
