You have corrupted files on your GPS. Borrow one from a friend and copy the files onto yours. Then you can try the upgrade again. Let me know if that doesn't work. naarcuda@aol.com

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'

My magellan crossover GPS is not recognized by my PC


I had the same problem.

The device drivers are included with the firmware updates.
download the firmware from www.magellangps.com

Even if you don't need a firmware update run the installer. The installer will stop when it can't find your gps. Before the installer stops it will extract the drivers. Right-click on your gps in windows "device manager" & select "update driver". Windows should be able to find the drivers now.

thanks,

No a practical solution, but at least you will get your device repair, after being on hold for 40 minutes I spoke to a very nice rep, unfortunately evethough she didn't admit it, it seems a software problem with the new 2008/2009 map update, in other words no way to fix it, you need to send it for repair, make sure you tell them to update the device with the new 2008/2009 Maps, if not you will have the same problem later on, Good Luck
