Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS

The only thing I am sure is what appeared on the Magellan Screen: "No Maps on Hard Drive".
I don't know exactly what appear on my computer screen, the only thing I am sure is that the download failed.
I will make an other download tentative and gave you the reason why it failed. Hope for me to make that tomorrow.
Thanks again for your help.

    The last download trial I made was a disaster. My computer gave me as answer, some files not found. Then now I'm in front of nothing. I tried to contact support from Magellan but very long and difficult to have answers. Hope for something soon.

As posted in another place, it took two tries for me to install the maps. Hopefully, you already were successful and haven't visited back to update your question.

Magellan roadmate 700 no maps found How do i fix this?


Hi,

the road maps for this model are on An SD Card.
If you don,t have the SD Card with the maps on, your roadmate won,t find them.
You can also contact:- Magellan for mapping updates.

I believe they do not supply the roadmaps with this item, which @ $1. 200 is a bit of a rip-off however good and accurate they are.

My 700 gets stuck with the last map


Same problems, you have to update as far as I know and you have to update every year otherwise it will start to freeze up. It's a rip off because it's $99 a year. Does anyone know if the other GPS companies do this?

Magellan roadmate 700 "powerup problem"


I had a Roadmate 700 with the same problem as yours, and the solution was simple: the hard drive inside had come loose!

All I did was open up the unit (4 screws on the back and a small snap-together clip on the end), and plugged the hard drive back into the cable. The cable has 2 black posts that fit into the hard drive, so you can't misalign the pins. On mine, the hard drive label was facing UP.

Once the hard drive was plugged in, I powered up, and could hear the hard drive spin up (which I hadn't heard before). The unit booted from the "Magellan" screen right into the menu almost immediately!

Hope this helps someone!!

How to hard reset magellan 700


Hussam.. I believe the newest software upgrade you can get for the 700 is version 4.32 which is the same version used on the 760's. The maps are stored on the hard drive, so I do not think a reset will help but here is how it's done. 1. At the user select menu (first screen to appear after initial turn on) hold down the zoom out key (-) and the repeat button (on top of your unit). 2. Once at the "secret" menu, select reset user data. This will reset all of your personal information from the unit. All of your POI's will be deleted as well as your user name (which you can re-create of course) 3. Your unit will re-boot automatically and that's how you reset your unit. Like I said though, I do not think this will revive your maps. If you have the maps on a DVD-CD then you can reload them that way, otherwise send it to the Fort Worth, Tx repair center and they have the proper program to load data directly to the hard drive. Good luck! -Daniel

Magellan roadmate 700 gps not working


Jossie, The cable that connects your hard drive to your main board could be loose. If it's not loose, then it's your hard drive. The only thing you can do (if it's not the cable) is send it in for a new hard drive. Unsure what the costs will be but the magellan logo screen is produced from memory on the main board while anything after that is when the hard drive takes over. -Daniel

Temperature below safe level warning when starting GPS


Ahh yes the ever so elusive temp. below safe level error. lol. (sorry) Attached to the radio board are 3 wires connecting to the top of your lcd. This is where the temp is read from. I know telling you this doesn't help, just info. This problem has been fixed from swapping out radio boards (the board that's behind your keypad), additionally swapping out hard drives. I'm not sure if the unit will detect the USB but, if you can, try re-loading whichever version you have ie. 4.32/5.14. As far as end user fixes, I don't exactly have one unless you can find a scrap unit that someone doesn't want b/c it's malfunctioned as well. Good luck and I wish I could of been more help. -Dan
