Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
The unit was working fine, then in the middle of a trip it lost the signal. I turned the unit off and on again, but it keeps searching for the satellite. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
This model has a poor antenna to start with. I have one and it was difficult to use in my suburban. I'm thinking it had trouble with all the metal and the slope of the windshield. They make an outside antenna that I highly recommend.

The 700 series has a very poor gps antenna connection internally. It joins the main circuit with the secondary with a very small grey coax cable. A small bump can loosen or damage this cable internally rendering the external gps antenna useless. You can take it apart and see if you can tighten the connection but be careful if you try. The connection is very fragile and it is easier to break the wire than anything.
