Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Megellan Roadmate 700, touch screen not working, if it works takes too long!

Volume nil, touch screen does not wor, sometimes it does, if it does its too slow. My enter key does not respond most of the time. This was never dropped, handled very carefully. I tried to do diagnostics from the configration screen, it takes a long to respond and finally when it does it just races from the top of the menu, canot make it to stop at diagnostics, it goes up to POI Selection in one shot or goes down to the last item of the menu which is Map regions. What should I do. I think I'm still on warranty, but any quick fix would be appreciated. Thanks.

Mthomas, Although I can't think of any quick fix, if you have a cd of the software version that you've installed then try re-installing that. if nothing else, access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix at times. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". If you can get it to the touch screen calibration test, then it could respond. (eventhough it's not working otherwise) Good Luck, DanEz007

Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS does not work properly

It seems that Magellan is not good with the power connectors on their units, I believe the problem is with the power adapter plugged into the cradle. Sorry I have no information about a repair center. Usually for an absorbent amount of money, Magellan will repair.

You can find it here: http://magellan.cachefly.net/manuals/MRM_300na_en.pdf

You may also want to know that there is a MAJOR firmware update avaiable for your device.. It looks like it would make your GPS a lot faster and more accurate. You may want to take care of that update too while you're working on your device. The update can be found here: http://www.magellangps.com/support/notes.asp?supportID=288

Let me know if that helps!

The most obvious question is, have you accidentally turned down the volume to a level where it can't be heard. There is a volume wheel on the unit. Also, there is a way that the sound can disappear if the unit gets "locked up". But that shouldn't be a persistent problem. Removing the power cord and reinserting it should clear that problem.

sync up with your computer while having the maps on dvd. Also, you might want to be running the software on the dvd. You may be able to find the maps on ebay for cheaper, not certain though.

Sreen works not accurate (RM 700)

This seems to be a general problem with Raodmates - try tapping a bit firmer with your fingernail - if that fails then bin the Magellan as they are very unreliable and Magellan Support is very poor!!!!!!!!!!!!

If everything else is working fine, specifically the touch screen, then it's probably your speaker. open unit and check your speaker for anything stuck to the back of the magnet (on the speaker). make sure the cable going from your speaker to the keypad PCB (board) is pushed in all the way. you may want to even pull it out and re-connect it. make sure the unit is off while you do this and try to ground yourself with something. good luck and let me know how it turns out.

RoadMate 700 GPS is not working..

Does the initial Magellan screen appear? If it doesn't display anything and it's just blue... :( Normally means that something on the main board is your problem. Which, means your out of luck. What happened to it? It just suddenly stopped working? Let me know. R/
