Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I have RoadMate 700. Lately it started get stuck in the middle of the route (gets hang) and keep searching for the satellite connection and does not calculate route at all. Turning off/on doesnt work. Also it turn off by itself....it started acting wiered.
Is there any way I can do RESET or MASTER-RESET on Magellan Road Mate 700?
NOTE: If you are trying these steps from your vehicle, it is
Recommended to follow when the vehicle is in a stationary position.
Make sure that the device is exposed to the clear view of sky.
With the antenna pointing upwards, remove the antenna and then re-insert.
Swivel it up and down to make sure its securely placed.
wait for few mins and check the signal indicator.
Still not working,
a direct line of sight with the sky.
NOTE: The address that you are entering in the Set GPS Position should be the address at which you are at that point of time.

At the log in screen press the repeat and "-" (zoom out) button at the same time. Hold for a few seconds and release both buttons and it will come to a test screen. There are several tests for the CF card adn HDD test. There is also reset options but I only did the HDD (hard drive) test and it tested fine. I heard if you reset, you have to reload the updates. That means you would need the CD and key. I rather not do this. I only have a problem with the bottom of touch screen not working with finger or stylist. I ran all the tests under configuration/diagnostics and I was not able to pass the touch screen test on the lower part of screen.
Good luck... Magellan tech support did not know how to do this.
Resetting the unit might make the touch screen work again? I might do this. If I do I will try to get back here to update the site.
