Magellan has a big problem in the past with the Canada Value Pack. It did not work with the Triton. It was only made to work with the older Magellan GPS units.

Best to contact Magellan and see if they will give you a new one.

Purchesed download for magellan western canada map and cannot download to my triton 400 gps


Hopefully the download is an .imi or .rmp file and the serial number is matched to your GPS. If so, just move the map to your SD card under the folder /MAP_DATA. Start your GPS and activate it.

The map has to be authorized by Magellan so make sure it is to your GPS serial number.

Add SD memory


You can add up to 8GB of SD memory. Your best approach is to add an 8GB SDHC Sandisk (always use Sandisk) Flash Memory card. You can find these cards with TOPO maps installed at the http://www.jungleghost.com website. You can also find the latest instruction manual that describes how to install the card.

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.

Magellan triton 500 freezes up


You might have an sd card inserted that contains information that the unit doesn't recognize. This happened to me when I tried to fudge some old magellan destination maps onto the sd card...the format was wrong and the unit froze...gave me the message.
