Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Freezing up My Nav is less than a year old, it has started freezing up within a minute of being turned on, at the longest. Sometimes it will immediately go to a blue/black screen of death, sometimes I get all the way to putting in a route, then it freezes solid, can't even turn it off without unplugging it. Any suggestions? Any way to fix this? All I've heard is negative, that I'll probably need to replace the unit. I've only checked the connections, unplugged and replugged, I don't know what else to try. Thanks.

    Same problem. The roadmate 760 "freezes up" a few second after turning it on.

Had the same the month before warranty expired. My personal opinion is that HDD got bad sectors. Sent to local repair representative. He just reformated drive and reinstalled software.
No wonder that another 11 months later it ran into exactly the same issue.
I'd buy new HDD but there is no way to re-install OS on it.
I'm surprised that no one has done that.
