Magellan Triton 400 update failed unit stuck in white screen

I tried to update my firmware using vantage point. The update failed in the middle of the update then froze my computer. It is now stuck in a white screen with the file menu but none of the options work. It will not power off with the power button and the batteries need to be removed to power it off. My computer says that is is connected but nothing seems to recognize it as the GPS. Is there a way to reset it or has the software been deleted?

Actually some bad news for you all. When you used the VP somehow you corrupted the internal software in the GPS. If the damage is done then you need to reflash the internal memory of the GPS. If the unit is in warranty .. then call Magellan.

Hey, Had the same exact problem, found a website with instructions on how to fix it. Turns out there was a corrupt file in the update, so you have to download the update directly from magellan and copy/paste into folders yourself. Anyway, here's the link--it worked perfectly for me!

SOURCE: Problem Appear After Update Interrupted Triton 400

You will need to send it to your place of purchase or send it to a authorised Magellan Dealer. This is due to that you corrupted the file during the firmware update process

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.

Each time I plug in the USB cable I get a blue screen. I am running Windows 7. I am trying to load maps onto the Triton 400.


Don't bother with the 400 on a Win7 machine even though Magellan claims it will work. I also keep getting a bad pool header blue screen on mine even though I've updated everything I could. The best thing to do is to either setup a dual boot system with WinXP and only plug it in while running XP (Don't bother with XP mode in Win7) or have a second system that's dedicated to XP and run Vantage point from it like what I run now from my laptop.

The whole problem is caused by the Triton driver and for some reason Win7 doesn't like it all that much. Vantage Point does run great inside Win7 but as soon as you plug in the Triton, that's when it all starts to screw up.

All we can do is wait until Magellan gives us a proper working driver.

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.
