My Roadmate 760 will just stop working. It starts up with the power cord from the car or the AC cord. The slightest jarring of the unit causes it to turn off. It may later start up on its own. When working it works normally It is getting harder to get it to start at all. I have cleaned the cradle connect but not open the case

Re: Magellan Roadmate 760 won't stay on
U6 is what I think it's called. those cases weren't exactly built around the insides.. (the circuit board).. there's a small IC chip on the backside of that same card with the cradle connect. . more then likely your case has shoved off a tiny little black IC chip. if you open the case and you see a little black peice.. save it. you might have to take apart your unit though. . careful when your opening it as the RF cable will be a hazard as soon as you crack the case.. so open the case just a little bit.. then find that cable I'm talking about.. and just pull it off.. then you can open it without any further restrictions.. If: this small IC chip is the problem, then you either need to solder it back on yourself.. or have someone else do it. So.. if you open the case u pand this isn't the problem let me know.. don't put the unit back together yet. and let me know.

You will need to pay Magellan for the authorization code, they are the only one that can provide you with an EU code for your Magellan 760 RoadMate. Sometimes Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc can also assist. They have direct connection with Magellan to assist issues with Magellan products. Good Luck
I think your problem is that you are using XP with SP 3, you cannot use anything more than XP SP2, so find yourself a friend that have an older operating system and update it. I bet you will not have any problem
The weakness of the 760 is the cradle. Is the power wire or the cradle loose or wiggles? You may need to buy a new cradle if that is the case. They are expensive. I soldered my power wire right into the cradle and it worked fine.
