1.Ok, if you have tried the manual update and it won't work then the thing to do is download this file:
http://www.lenwoodcc.org/triton/t500tfat2.zip

To download the file just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted section of text just above.

2.And then connect your GPS your computer and start it in the developers mode - which should make it connect to your computer as a USB driver.

To start your GPS in developer mode ,simultaneously press and hold the POWER - LIGHT - UP ARROW buttons as you start the GPS.
Want to get out of this mode, you can reboot the unit by simultaneously pressing and holding the POWER - SELECT - ESC buttons or just take out one of the batteries.

3.Next unzip the T500TFAT2.ZIP file to a directory on your hard drive. Once you have that unzipped go to "My Computer" and access the TFAT directory on your Triton and erase all of the files on it. Then copy all of the files from the T500TFAT2 file that I sent you. Once you have the new files in place then disconnect your Triton from the computer and reboot it and see if it works.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Definitely an internal memory error. The unit has to be reflashed. If under warranty go to Magellan.

My magellan triton 500 will not fully turn on. It statrts to load the bat goes all the way and then freezes. I can not turn it off either.


You need to reset the magellan triton 500, then it will fully come on and stay on. To reset this type of magellan. What you have to do is to take out the battery and reinstall it back in. That should do the job for you, and if that does not solve the problem, then you have to back up the maps on a computer then format the triton then restore the software and maps back on it. Now am assuring you that will do the job.
Hope this information helped you.

Frozen Magellan


Big problem .. you had a bad firmware download and the unit is now stuck in the development mode. Two solutions .. 1) return to Magellan for a replacement. 2) If not in warranty .. there is a third party repair center on the internet .. use your browser and search for 'magellan triton repair'

Magellan Triton 400 update failed unit stuck in white screen


Hey, Had the same exact problem, found a website with instructions on how to fix it. Turns out there was a corrupt file in the update, so you have to download the update directly from magellan and copy/paste into folders yourself. Anyway, here's the link--it worked perfectly for me!

The problem is being caused by a corrupt file in the internal memory. This requires a service repair to find and remove the file. Try the Jungle Ghost at jungleghost.com. They do repairs.
