Question about Magellan Triton 300 Handheld GPS Receiver
My Magellan triton 300 handheld gps froze, how do I fix it?
I have a Triton 300 for 4 years, it died about 2 years ago, as in it wouldnt boot past the triton/ magellan screen, so it remained a paper weight in my junk for 2 yrs until today. This is how I got mine to work. You can try this at your own risk, I will not be responsible for any damages to your GPS. I figured mine was dead this long what the heck. I connected it to my laptop, boot into so called programmer mode, or what ever. I did this by holding up key, back light key and power. Took a few seconds but did boot to this different mode. It should have showed as a USB device but instead showed as a Hard Drive in under my Computer, devices, named H:TFAT, i right clicked it then it showed the same options as a HDD. Check Disk, Defrag Etc. I said fook it and hit check for bad files, it did, then it said device should now work dissconnect and power up. IT POWERED UP :). First time in 2 years, but it is working and I lost nothing on my unit. Hope this may help someone else. Thanks for reading.

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.
