Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I have a Roadmate 700 that keeps freezing with the last map I used for a long time. It won't locate where I am and keeps giving me directions to my last trip.
I haven't updated my maps but I don't thing this is the problem and besides, everyone who gets the new V6 updates have been complaining about it.
Could someone please assist me on this problem??
Is there a way to maybe reset the system?
I had a similar problem with freezing and was able to resolve by reformating the magellan drive. Hook it to your computer and go to "My Computer", where you should see the magellan listed as a portable drive, then format. After formatting reinstall your maps from the Magellan CD you got with the unit. I tried reinstalling the map without the format process and it continued to freeze. After formatting has worked like a charm for over a year.

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?
