Repair Roadmate 700

Magellan will not allow me to send my model in for repair as these are now obsolete. I can't get a signal at all - stays in black - I initialize it, enter location and it turns to red but will not track direcitions whatsoever. Thought it was the antenna, bought a new one - same problem. Can you repair this amd of so, how much and where do I send it? unit will not power up.Tried all power sources, but wont come on

It is very difficult to get part for this model. so the better option is to buy a new one.

Hope that helps.......

All navigation units are GPS Receivers - that is - they receive satellite signals. So, no there is no difference.

No signal, is this an antenna problem ? Or is the unit not worth fixing.


it is not worth fixing,i had a 700 it worked until it loses sattlite signals.then i did my research and notice how many problems the 700. i decided to get the magellan mastreo 4000 and i bought roadmate 800,so get a newer model you will be happy that you did.

I know there's the Magellan Repair Center in Fort Worth,TX. That would be the place to send it to if your wanting to use them. Other then them, I might have a chance at fixing it.

Steve, In this case I would replace the Hard drive. But, since you probably don't have spare HDD's lying around.. do you atleast have the Software version? Some CD that came with it hopefully. If you do, then you may be able to stay alive here. Once your system boots to the user screen.. press + and repeat key at the same time.. "secret" menu now. ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!! Select NAND FLASH FORMAT.. The unit will shut down after formatting. start up your software installer on computer. plug usb in.. and power on unit. This fix isn't %100, but it's the best shot you have. Otherwise you've gotta send it down here to Texas (where magellan repair is) and pay for the new hard drive. OR.. you could call customer service and see what they have to say. you'll probably be transferred to overseas.. --good luck with that -Dan
