Hussam.. I believe the newest software upgrade you can get for the 700 is version 4.32 which is the same version used on the 760's. The maps are stored on the hard drive, so I do not think a reset will help but here is how it's done. 1. At the user select menu (first screen to appear after initial turn on) hold down the zoom out key (-) and the repeat button (on top of your unit). 2. Once at the "secret" menu, select reset user data. This will reset all of your personal information from the unit. All of your POI's will be deleted as well as your user name (which you can re-create of course) 3. Your unit will re-boot automatically and that's how you reset your unit. Like I said though, I do not think this will revive your maps. If you have the maps on a DVD-CD then you can reload them that way, otherwise send it to the Fort Worth, Tx repair center and they have the proper program to load data directly to the hard drive. Good luck! -Daniel

My Magellan 700 with version 5.14 software kept locking up while calculating the route. To reset the unit, I: 1. Hit the Options button 2. Selected Configuration 3. Selected Backup and Restore 4. Ignored the "power down and insert flashcard..." message and clicked the OK button 5. Selected Backup and Restore from the menu once more; the unit automatically shut off but was reset when I restarted it--no more freezes!
