Could be a series of problems. One is that the USB connection to the GPS is not working. Go to TOOLS and check the connection. If your connection is good then the size of the map you are trying to export may be too large. Make up a small map and test it againl.

I cannot locate topo maps loaded via sd card


Hello,

If you have the TOPO maps loaded to an SD card and the card is inserted all you should have to do is go to Tools > Settings > Map > Info in this menu you will find your map sets if you see TOPO make sure it is activated if not you may need to re install them to the SD.

Hope this helps!

Topo maps


hi peter, firstly the only difference you would notice with topo maps is that the unit will now display contour lines and they will only be visible when you are viewing the map not when you are in the navigation mode.

the contour lines are brown lines on the map that represent different heights above sea level.

Can't view downloaded sections from Garmin Topo


In Map Setup page, scroll over to blue 'ball' icon (second from right), press lower left button on side of GPS unit, use Thumb switch to scroll down to "Show None", click Thumb switch in. All maps will disappear. Press lower left button on side of GPS unit again, scroll down to "Show Topo.....", click Thumb switch in. Your Topo maps should now show onscreen.

The reason your Topo map might not have shown is because, if you leave the Navigator map showing, and then just press "Show Topo", the layer showing Topo will still be under the Navigator map. This is why I always tell it to show none, and then load whatever map I need to see onto a bare screen.

If this solved your problem, please come back and rate our answer as this assists others. Thank you.

I have a Magellan Triton 400 and it stays on for about one minute


Jaime, What happened here is that somehow you copied files from a firmware upgrade that was different than the upgrade you have on the machine originally and these mixed up files are causing the INTERNAL ERROR.

Unless your are a software expert you will not be able to recover your GPS. There are some solutions which recommend that you turn the unit into the development mode and then copy the firmware version to the GPS. But people who recommend this method also warn you that you could turn your unit into a "BRICK".

So either return the unit to Magellan for an exchange or go to your browser and look up the jungle ghost repair center.

Triton 400 connects to PC but does not accept selected NG Topo maps. Message appears that there is no space on SD chip when indeed it is empty and formatted. There is no problem with the contacts either.


OK .. first of all there is a rule "NEVER RUN VP AND NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOFTWARE AT THE SAME TIME!!"

This problem usually occurs when the NG software has been loaded incorrectly.

Here is the solution:

1) Uninstall the NG software from your computer.
2) Use the Triton CD_ROM and load the sample NG software (This version 4.4.0)
3) Now update the 4.4.0 to 4.4.3

Now you have the correct software. Just reload your maps from the NG CD_ROM data disks and you are OK.

Installing national geographic topo maps on my magellan triton500


Two possible answers and they are both dependable on the serial number of the map vs.the serial number of the GPS. The best solution is to use Vantage Point to do the transfer. The second method is to directly load the map to an SD card under the directory MAP_DATA and then place in the GPS. Then do a MENU>>VIEW>>MAPS and activate the map. If the map is missing you do not have it under the MAP_DATA directory. If the map shows a RED "X" then the serial number of the map is not the same as the serial number of the GPS.

Topo maps a mess of meaningless lines


Sorry for late reply. You need to select an area on your topo map prior to downloading it. For example, if you plan to go to Algonquin Bice Lake (access point 4), then you need to select the map around the area (starting from) Kearney upto the Magnetawan Lake and beyond. Mark waypoints from the put-in to the campsite on Bice Lake (best to compare of the topo and Algonquin canoeing map). Then you can click Transfer, click Send to Device (GPS 76cs should appear) to download it. On the GPS, enter the Find Waypoint button and you should be able to see those waypoints. Good luck for your next trip.

Loading Topo maps...210 says invalid base map??


To get the base map and to get your unit functioning again:
Install the firmware again:

Go to: http://www.magellangps.com/support/product.asp?prodid=1114

Or, if this doesn´t work, go to www.magellangps.com, click on"support", click on "legacy products" (left) and click on "eXplorist210 Europe" (do NOT click on "eXplorist 210 North America")

On this page click under Updates/Upgrades on "version 2.57", and follow the instructions. You will have to register your GPS, register it under a European country.

After you have installed the firmware you will have the basemap and some new windows on the GPS. Good luck and enjoy!

Mapping


For back roads, you will need a Topo mapping program, ie Topo USA 2008 or Topo Canada 4 (you don't mention what country you are in).

Topo Canada comes on four CDs, Topo USA 2008 comes on one DVD so you'll have to upgrade your drive, or else load the maps from someone else's computer.
