Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a magellan roadmate 760 with an external antenna that plugs into the back of the unit with about a 2-3 inch wire. the antenna model number is m812b. The whole unit is incased in a plastic surround that sits on top of the dash of my 07 ford f150. It was a add on that i bought off ebay new. My problem is it worked for the two years i had it, then just one day it froze in one location and the sat. pic on the screen just spins like it is looking for a location. Any thoughts? Do i have an antenna problem os something else? Thanks.

Hi dmdalyai,

if its stuck in one location and you can navigate through the unit (like enter addresses ect.) then its an antenna problem...make sure it has a good charge on it and verify its charging in the power options tap, then take it outside in clear view of the open sky and turn it on, then give it up to 30 minutes to lock on to the satellites....

let me know how you make out, if that didnt help, you might want to try another antenna...is there something wrong with the built in antenna (the one that flips up on the back of the 760 ?

No signal in two units, did reset with magellan tech service, still gets stuck in the same location and no signal


Plug it in, turn it on and let it sit out in the open. If the unit is working at all, it will eventually find and lock onto the satellites. The 760 I'm using now came from California and it took over 2 hours to lock on. When I start a trip now, I let it sit before starting to drive and it locks on in just a few minutes.

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.

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 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.

Unit will not acquire the satellite signs


FYI ....My Roadmate 760 would not aquire a signal, I went to diagnostic screen and found it was detecting/tracking 0/0 satellites. Held the plugged in unit out the window and within 10 seconds was tracking 7 satellites! Turned out my 1999 Olds Silhouette Van has a anti-glare filter inside the factory windshield that blocks GPS signals.My wifes 2001 Chevy Impala also has same type filter. Check your windshield, filter is visible inside glass to within about three inches of edges of glass. Worth a look.

2 Magellan GPS roadmates that do not work.


I can fully identify with your problems. My Roadmate 700 was the third machine that I was supplied with - the first two failed and this third unit was a factory refurbished unit. What a rubbish organistaion Magellan is!!!!

I am now binning my Roadmate having just bought new maps and software but failed to get Magellan Tools or cameras as was promised. I am now buying a Tomtom Go series with maps and cameras preloaded plus live traffic info - it auto updates each time it's put on its cradle linked to PC/internet.

What a crass orgainisation Magellan is - RUBBISH!!!!
