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.

OK .. you have corrupted software in the unit. Try the following:

1) Reload the latest firmware.
2) If #1 does not work and the unit is in warranty, return it to Magellan.
3) If #1 and #2 are not a solution .. go to the only Magellan Triton Repair Center other than Magellan at jungleghost.com
