    My magellan roadmate 760 freezes when loading a route. I've contacted magellan many times and all I get is re-initialize the unit or send it in. Anyone have any other ideas as to how to fix this? Not a big magellan fan now

SOURCE: Magellan Roadmate 760 won't stay on

U6 is what I think it's called. those cases weren't exactly built around the insides.. (the circuit board).. there's a small IC chip on the backside of that same card with the cradle connect. . more then likely your case has shoved off a tiny little black IC chip. if you open the case and you see a little black peice.. save it. you might have to take apart your unit though. . careful when your opening it as the RF cable will be a hazard as soon as you crack the case.. so open the case just a little bit.. then find that cable I'm talking about.. and just pull it off.. then you can open it without any further restrictions.. If: this small IC chip is the problem, then you either need to solder it back on yourself.. or have someone else do it. So.. if you open the case u pand this isn't the problem let me know.. don't put the unit back together yet. and let me know. _+Daniel

SOURCE: Magellan Roadmate 760 map update problem

Just push the antenna firmly back into the base; it pivots on a coax connector.
This is typical when you drop it.
The antenna is removable.

How can I get the code to unlock the European map Magellan Roadmate 760


You will need to pay Magellan for the authorization code, they are the only one that can provide you with an EU code for your Magellan 760 RoadMate. Sometimes Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc can also assist. They have direct connection with Magellan to assist issues with Magellan products. Good Luck

I need an upgrade for my magellan Roadmate 760


You can download an upgrade for this unit from the Magellan website for free. Maps can be upgraded but they cost about $80, and that doesn't seem worth it to me. See if that works for you.

Roadmate 760 Password Reset


Dark,

Although it has been some time now since I've worked on these, I beLIEve if you plug the unit into your computer you can explore the files and there should be a file called password or pwd or.. something along those lines.. all you have to do is delete the file and it will work. It was surprisingly easy I remember that much. If this doesn't work, play/look around with the files in the unit, and as a precaution I would copy the file over to your computer prior to deleting just in case.

The weakness of the 760 is the cradle. Is the power wire or the cradle loose or wiggles? You may need to buy a new cradle if that is the case. They are expensive. I soldered my power wire right into the cradle and it worked fine.

Magellan Roadmate 760 Freezes and Restarts


Chgorose, It sounds like the hard-drive is for lack of a (better)technical term.. crapping out on you. You tried the "GPS data reset" but in that same menu ("secret menu") there's another option that says reset user data (not GPS). I would try this before paying for repairs. If you have software that you can reload then reload the software as it could either be a software issue or hardware (hard drive) issue. As far as a recommendation for future GPS purchases under $600, I'm bias towards Magellan's simply because I've worked on them before and know them. Although the 6000T is nice I do believe it is still above $600, but if I was to get one I'd go for the MRM800 or 860T. Hope this helps. -Daniel
