Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Screen Freezes When I turn on the roadmate it goes to the blue Magellan screen and then nothing, if you unplug and plug in several times it will eventually work. Any idea why and if it is fixable, (my husband suggests an axe)

    I have this same problem, I did register with Magellan, but the only upgrade they offered was 3.32 but my software is 4.42. The web page tells you not to install 3.32 unless you have an older version or you will trash you unit. I see other people have live version 5.?? where do I get this or is the 5.?? maps... Then I would have to pay for it... Also I have no CD for this thing .. is there a way to get the software so I could format the HD and reinstall the software that is already on it...

My magellan Roadmate 5220-LM powers on but will not go past the first screen. I have tried to use the reset button but it still will not work


Hello Liz, You may have two problems. If your unit is several years old, the battery may need to be replaced. First charge the battery overnight. To get the screen unfrozen , you need to remove the screws on the back, open the case, and unplug the white battery connection . Reconnect the battery connection after a few seconds. If this works, it is usually a temporary fix . Either your battery does not hold a charge or your charger connection is poor at best and can not deliver a full charge to the battery. It could be both.

Hi,

Try removing the battery and leaving it out for a long time (overnight) and replace the next day and see if that helps.

Blue screen with magellan logo , this is what I see after turn on my gps receiver, I tryed to push any button but anything change on the screen, to shut it off i have to use 'enter' ,'cancel' and power...


This is the boot screen, Remove the power connection, and reinsert while you press the "Cancel" button at the same time, if done correctly, your Roadmate should continue to boot and enter the user mode.

Send it back GET A REFUND.. I am ditching my Roadmate 700 (cost over £800 34 years agao) .. Magellan Support is so useless, they don't respond. .. just don't seem to care - how French! (and I say this with 28 years working knowledge in France)

Am now buying a Tomtom 720T with cameras preloaded - it upadtes automatically when you sit the satnav in a cradle attached to your PC/internet.

Does the initial Magellan screen appear? If it doesn't display anything and it's just blue... :( Normally means that something on the main board is your problem. Which, means your out of luck. What happened to it? It just suddenly stopped working? Let me know. R/
