Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I acquired software update from Magellan. This was going to convert my 700 to 760 when it was complete with the input from the CD that was sent to me. I would also have a more current version and maps. After some hours it completed the transfer noting it was sucessful. It told me a reboot would be necessary and not to shut off the device BUt when I just wanted to move it out of my way I inadveretently dislodged the cradel. The device went off and stayed off. I thought it might be the power cord so I tried my car's power cord but it still wouldn't work.
I called Magellan but they don't support it any more (discontinued). On of their techs said it was a cradel problem and then an additional call another tech said it was the device (corrupted in some way). A definite difference of advice.
So doesn't any one out there have a solution to this problem?
Since it is a dicontinued like mine roadmate700 and started losing sattilite signal like everyone says here ,i got upset i spent alot of money on it,then this happens, so i decided and bought the new magellan mastreo 4000 and just updated the software and no problems i love it,portable,thin light weight internal chargable battery that lasts 3hrs,the signal strenght is awsome,never had any problems,my advice junk it, the 700 like i did and purchase a new unit.this way it will save you alot of problems and headaches in the future,beleive me.

Tips for a great answer:
Error message "PND needs to be updated" means the software version of your GPS is lower than 4.93. To update the maps of your GPS, please update the software first by visiting the link below:
*Note: PND means Personal Navigation Device.
