Magellan 700 sound problem

Upgraded from 3.20 to 3.32- If I go to diagnostics and audio test, the sounds works like it used to. After turning unit off, sound does not work on powerup until the audio test

    I ended up taking parts from this gps to make up another before trying the fix. It seems as if it should have fixed it. thanks for the input

1. Search for the file ENG_F.SND sound on google or yahoo or any search engine.

2. Connect RM 700 to PC, and create folder name SOUND_EU on RM 700.

3. Copy the ENG_F.SND to SOUND_EU folder.

4. Disconnect RM 700 from PC.

5. Turn on RM 700, and go to Option, configuration, language, and choose English.

6. RM 700 will load sound file and turn off.

7. Turn on RM 700, if it keeps showing the initial screen, then connect the RM 700 to PC, and DELETE the ENG_F.SND from SOUND_EU. It should be OK after you disconnect RM 700 from PC and turn it on again.

GOOD LUCK!
NOTES: My screen indeed locked at first as covered in the last step, so expect that to happen. Don't worry if you never get to do step 5 and 6. Connecting the USB, deleting the SND file and restarting it works and the sound is back even without the file there.

This only fixes the Female voice along with the beeps and clicks. The unit goes silent again if you select the male voice but switching back to the female fixed that. I assume "_F" in the file name must mean female.

The display still shows "AFIJDEN...." or something like that instead of the word "Exit" or "Entrance" when exiting or entering the freeway. Voice is fine though. Anyone got a fix for that?

My gps magellan 700 does not have sound


check to see if the sound will start working when you either run the tutorial or when you do the audio test. If it does work when you run these tasks, then you've got bigger problems than I deal with. As I would just swap out a ckt card, you do not have that capability. Alright, without having any addt'l parts, I'd open up the GPS and check the two wires and connectors inside to make sure they aren't split and that they are (obviously) still connected to the radio board.. (brd over keypad) You could have a blown speaker. If you have any contact cleaner then spray the audio adjuster b/c alot of times that gathers alot of build up. So, yea.. check your connections inside, there's really not too much that you can do, without additional parts to test them out. hope this helps atleast a little bit. -Daniel
