Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

Magellan GPS Roadmate 760

The unit does not power up anymore. The times that it has, it shuts off after a few minutes. Sometimes, it took several minutes to orient itself to location before it broke down. I am not sure what it doing this and I have not tried anything yet to fix it.

Does anyone know what this "Advanced Cradle" is? Works with the 700/760 models.

No signal in two units, did reset with magellan tech service, still gets stuck in the same location and no signal


Plug it in, turn it on and let it sit out in the open. If the unit is working at all, it will eventually find and lock onto the satellites. The 760 I'm using now came from California and it took over 2 hours to lock on. When I start a trip now, I let it sit before starting to drive and it locks on in just a few minutes.

How can I get the code to unlock the European map Magellan Roadmate 760


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

The Magellan 760 has been around for a few years now, and unfortunately, isn't one of the fastest units around when it comes to synchronizing to a satellite. I find with mine that the time it takes to lock onto a signal depends on several factors:
1) Having the GPS mounted in a way that allows the antenna to have a clear view upward 2) Having my vehicle in the open, so that the signal isn't impaired by adjacent buildings, overhanging trees, etc. 3) Being stationary while the GPS attempts to get a lock. It has more problems locking while moving. 4) Ensuring that the GPS is used frequently, as it loses its memory of what satellites it's synchronized with if you happen to be in a different place when you turn it on than the place you were at when you last turned it off.
Those last two points have the most affect on my GPS's performance. I find that by turning on the GPS and just parking in my driveway or parking lot for a few minutes will allow the GPS to acquire a signal in a much shorter time than if I start to drive immediately. While this will waste a bit of time on the front end, it does help you get synchronized more quickly

I need an upgrade for my magellan Roadmate 760


You can download an upgrade for this unit from the Magellan website for free. Maps can be upgraded but they cost about $80, and that doesn't seem worth it to me. See if that works for you.

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.

Magellan Roadmate 760 map update problem


Just push the antenna firmly back into the base; it pivots on a coax connector.
This is typical when you drop it.
The antenna is removable.

Check the pins on the cradle. I've noticed that sometimes, my pins will become misaligned (they become bent, or unevenly spaced). Also, make sure the unit is snapping completely on the clip. Sometimes, the clip doesn't "bounce back" after the unit is released, and a subsequent attempt to attach the unit to the cradle results in a faulty connection.
