Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
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.

HI, 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 . good luck

Danny, 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. -Daniel
