My 700 will not find my location. In fact it does not show any gps at all. When I turn it on it doesn't even attempt to find satellites, the signal is color black. I looked at the GPS status and it looks like all 12 channels are working (none at 0000) however I have no azimuth or elevation. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated
I fixed this problem by opening the options menu, selecting the diagnostics button, then the initialize button. The gps began to look for satellites again and after several minutes began working as normal.
My suggestion concerning your problem,is to try to set your gps location, you can find it in configuration gps location, to do so, stop in front of an address and set this address as your location or next your house whatever but the most important to locate the azimuth to your maps.try this, it works with me,it was freezing and not updating my position .

Re: My 700 has no GPS
First I would try resetting GPS. It has been a while since I've worked on the 700's but there is a next to the GPS Status button that shows something along the lines of resetting GPS. It will then tell you that it will take 5 min. to re-aquire a signal. Try that first.
If that fails, restart your unit and at the user menu push the "-" (zoom out) key AND the "repeat" button on top. Your in the "secret" menu now. Select Reset GPS user data (maybe it doesn't say that verbatim but work with me here). Press yes to confirm then check your gps status again. Let me know how it works out.

GPS isn't on by default (or you'd see yourbattery drain even faster). Check whether GPS is on by going to Settings, Location and Security,Use GPS satellites If the box on the right doesn't have a green check in it, GPS is off. Touch to turn it on. Many programs will turn GPS on automatically. Check the settings for the navigationprogram you're using. You might also want to look at a free app called GPS Test. There are also apps such as Quick Settings that will let you turn GPS on andoff without going deep into the settings menu.
you do not get any sounds right? If no, you need a new hard drive. There is no magic fix for a white screen. Either your hard drive is corrupted.. if no sound it's your hard drive. If there's is sound it could be your lcd connector. As a matter of fact it could be your hard drive cable. At your own risk feel free to open up the mysterious unit and make sure the big metal rectangular prism in there is properly connected.
Me again...I took the unit apart and found out that there is a coax cable between the back board and the middle board. The cable has plug in connectors (v. small size) and the female connectors are soldered SMT on the boards. They are coming out quite easy..so one of them was literally ripped off the board. I soldered it with quite a fine iron,did a reset and I am back in business.....as a footnote my readings in AZ /El were all zeros!!!!
If out of warranty time frame, open her up and check the grey cables that you will notice right after you crack the case. Make sure the cable is un damaged and connects to the main board (the big one) to the I/O board (attached to rear housing). If no change, then try resetting GPS user data.
At User Menu (after reboot), press "-" key and repeat key at the same time. select reset GPS user data and cross your fingers.
Not updating your GPS isn't going to cause signal loss. Push the options key, go to configuration, then to diagnostics, scroll down.. select reset gps. it will say it takes 5 min. to relocate.. etc. see if that fixes it. If it doesn't fix then when you restart your unit and the user menu appears. Press "-" key and "repeat" button at the same time.. then select clear gps user data or.. user data gps... something to that nature.. Hope this works out for ya.
