Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
@powerup "Temperature unsafe level, to speedup process turn on heater", it never comes up
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!!
