The RED X is a symbol when the maps you have do not match the serial number of the GPS you are trying to run them on. You have to use the Adventure Pack and create NEW MAPS with the present GPS attached.

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.

Triton 400 sometimes street maps move anywhere from 100 ft either way to 1/8 mile away from route and makes it show you are off road or in wrong lane.


This problem is most caused by two possible errors. One the maps were not prepared correctly.

Two your navigation settings are wrong. Please reset the datum to WGS84 and see if this helsp.

When I power up my Triton 400 an Internal Error message window shows up and then the unit shuts down after a few seconds. It fails repeatedly. Is there something I can do to be able to use my GPS again ?


Hello :

First try new batteries . If that didn't work , then I recommend you to reset your Triton . Resetting can solve errors and faults that occurs in your device .

Try this for resetting :

1:Using the stylus, tap "Main Menu" and select "View."
2:Tap "Settings," and select "Restore Factory Settings." You will be given the option to confirm this action. Be sure that you want to reset to the settings that the GPS was built with. This action is irreversible.
3:Tap "Confirm," and the unit will begin to reset.

For that you need a thin object (such as a paper clip)

Don't use this method on other Magellan models .

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Hi, I need a triton 400 driver. Any ideas where to download?


The Triton GPS drivers load when you install Vantage Point which is free off the magellangps.com website.

Triton 400 will not load maps.


OK .. you could have many possible causes. The most likely is that the magellan drivers are not installed on your computer. If you installed Vantage Point you will find them under the c:\magellan drivers folder.

Now without Vantage Point being on just connect the GPS to the computer and turn it on. Then open up the device manager on your computer and you will see a PORT COM(number). Click on the properties and see if the device driver is enabled and working.

If it is not.. then uninstall the present driver and reinstall from your computer by pointing to the c:\magellan drivers folder.

Blank loading screen


Bad News.. somehow you corrupted the internal software of the GPS. If the unit is in warranty, please return it to Magellan

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.

I cannot access any of the maps I loaded onto my SD card


First of all, the maps must be created and match the serial number of the GPS you will run it on. Next the maps must be transferred to the SD card in the directory /MAP_DATA The GPS always looks at this directory for any map.

Magellan Triton 500 value bundle


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.
