Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan 700 With cig connector fuses not being blown - just not coming on at all. I didn't have a house connector - I did buy one and it does not come on at all but then I'm still thinking its the cradle. Or perhaps both the new cig and house connectors have the wrong plug? Bought on ebay and advertised as connectors for various models including 700.

If it's the same plug that works with 700/760 then the plugs good. .if your trying to use one for an 800/860T then it's not good. yes it could be the cradle or anything inbetween your unit and the source.. Or.. if your hearing the smallest rattle.. then look for one of my solutions talking about U6.. a small chip that is common to come loose from the board from rubbing up against the rear housing.

Having trouble with fuse # 17th

From my wiring diagram power for the radio is fuse # 29 a 25amp fuse! The fuse for cig lighter also powers the DLC Pin # 16 . The DLC is the connector under the dash left of the steering wheel . This is where you would hook up a scan tool ! Are you saying by part dash lights ,that some of the dash lights are out ? Could just be some burnt out bulbs ! Was fuse # blown ? Did you cig light work before ? Could have a shorted out cig. lighter or the outlet ! To fix dash bulbs the instrument cluster would need to be pulled ! How to Replace Dashboard Lights In Depth

I plugged a cell phone charger into my cigarette lighter in my 1991 chevy silverado and now my cigarette lighter, stereo, cargo light, and dome light will not work can you help me figure this out?

You blew the CIG,RADIO or ACC fuse in the fuse panel, remove and replace with same rated fuse.There is a grounding issue inside the lighter housing from this

Magellan Roadmate 2200T -dark screen

its probably not charging...very common problem with this and many others.

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

you can get it repaired, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

Unit will not turn on

Check for voltage at the end that plugs into the cradle. If no voltage there, check glass fuse inside end that plugs into car plug. If there is voltage at the cradle end and it still doesn't turn on then it's the cradle. The cradle fails over a short time inside the cradle plug. You can hard solder the cable end to the cradle circuit board, which is a delicate procedure which I have perfected but I am an electronics person. If you want to buy a new cradle it will fix your problem for turning on the gps but I recomend a cable tie on the cradle cable end to stop the strain on the connector so the new cradle connector will last a long time.

Power adapter for Magellan 700 is broken

Connector J1 is the power connector. The left post corresponds to the center lug. The middle post is the outer connection. The right post closest to the USB connection is just an anchor - no connection.

Magellan Roadmate 700 does not power on

Hello, Rafster! Cigarette lighter plug problems are not uncommon, and - hopefully - this is the source of your problem. Because the green LED on your plug is lit, it would suggest that the FUSE inside is okay. Still, it's worth checking! The plug is easy to open, and the fuse easy to inspect/replace. IF the fuse is okay, the cord itself or the plug end that attaches to your Roadmate could be damaged. In order to determine this, you would have to check for voltage at the output end. But, you'd need a circuit tester and a wee bit of electronics knowledge to test it. If you don't have access to a tester, then the easiest test is to simply purchase a NEW cigarette lighter cord. You can get them at most retail discount stores (BestBuy; Circuit City; WalMart; etc.); RadioShack; or directly from Magellan. They're generally less than $10.00!

My gps magellan 700 does not have sound

check to see if the sound will start working when you either run the tutorial or when you do the audio test. If it does work when you run these tasks, then you've got bigger problems than I deal with. As I would just swap out a ckt card, you do not have that capability. Alright, without having any addt'l parts, I'd open up the GPS and check the two wires and connectors inside to make sure they aren't split and that they are (obviously) still connected to the radio board.. (brd over keypad) You could have a blown speaker. If you have any contact cleaner then spray the audio adjuster b/c alot of times that gathers alot of build up. So, yea.. check your connections inside, there's really not too much that you can do, without additional parts to test them out. hope this helps atleast a little bit. -Daniel
