Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I received this Roadmate 700 as a hand-me-down a few weeks ago. The initial problem was a faulty car adaptor cord. After fiddling long enough the unit would power up and stay on as long as it wasn't jostled. It operated long enough that I know the sound was working. I ordered a new cord and cradle. While waiting to receive them I downloaded the version 3.32 firmware so I could update the maps. It was after that I noticed that there was no longer sound. I figured it was just my luck to have the sound go out. Magellan support told me that this unit is no longer serviceable and offered a trade-in value of 40% off any new Maestro. It was then that I came across the FixYa site and discovered that others have written about the same problem. I just couldn't find the solution(s) that DanEzo offered them. There is no sound at all. I opened the unit up to check the speaker and connections. Everything looks good visually. I found the hidden menu at start up and believe I reset the right menu choice, but still no sound. Are there other possibilities? FYI - I don't have the CD that came with the unit. I would appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.
Assume RM 700 lost sound after updating to ver 3.32 from Magellan website. Below is solution that works for my RM 700.
1. Search for the file ENG_F.SND sound on google or yahoo or any search engine.
2. Connect RM 700 to PC, and create folder name SOUND_EU on RM 700.
3. Copy the ENG_F.SND to SOUND_EU folder.
4. Disconnect RM 700 from PC.
5. Turn on RM 700, and go to Option, configuration, language, and choose English.
6. RM 700 will load sound file and turn off.
7. Turn on RM 700, if it keeps showing the initial screen, then connect the RM 700 to PC, and DELETE the ENG_F.SND from SOUND_EU. It should be OK after you disconnect RM 700 from PC and turn it on again.
