Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Magellan 3250 Just received as Xmas gift, and after it was plugged into the computer and disconnected the screen remains solid blue with MAGELLAN across the center and the battery charge gauge at the bottom. We've tried reseting it over and over and no luck. How do we get the screen to return to the start up menu???????

    Why my GPS dont turn on ?

  • fonz14220 Jan 04, 2008

    I just got mine out of the box and it worked right away in my home. then i turned it off to use it in my car and it goes to a loading screen and freezes. It just stays in the blue loading screen. I can reset it and it just keeps happening. I can also get to the bootloader menu but dont know how to use it. Why isnt that menu in the manual???

I had this problem with the frozen screen. I googled until I found someone suggesting that you just leave it plugged into the wall charger and eventually it returned to normal. It took about 2 1/2 days but it did return to normal. Remember a watchpot never boils, just plug it in and walk away!!

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.

My magellan turned on one time and napped, crackled and popped and shows that it has loaded but it nothing will come on. I can't use it, what do I do?

If your unit popped and crackled, sound like something has blown internally. You will need to send the unit in for repair.

How to upgrade Magellan Maestro 3250

You have to contact the Magellan Technical support to upgrade this device. Even for a battery replacement too, you can't do it by yourself. It can also be done at the Authorised Service Center for Magellan at your town, as its user manual says. OK.

Maestro 3250 will not boot past magellan screen.

When I talked with Magellan tech support they told me the GPS would not be recognized until the unit was sent in to be repaired. The screen was frozen on the start up screen. When asked how much it would cost, they said they had a customer loyalty program and would sell me a new GPS or a refurbished one if I sent in my old one. They could not just repair mine. The cost was more than a new unit on e-bay. No more Magellan products for me.

Magellan Has Been Freezing Up Since I Replaced the Charger

Magellan web page has a firmware upgrade for your 3250. It is Version 4.86 unless you already have it. If that doesn't help, go to there support page and at the bottom you can see if one of the questions on the page is something that is similar to your problem. If not you will be able to ask a question yourself. Good luck.

Map update for the 3250

I would avoid map updates from Magellan like the plague. They have a strange way of frying the units. Unless you want to be without your GPS and fighting with Magellan for months, leave the map software the way it is.
