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.

How to use my gps


To use your magellan gps,
  • Mount in-dash models on your dashboard with accessories found on the Magellan website. The company offers motorists kits to get the systems right where you want them for easy driving reference.
  • Use touch-screen controls on the in-dash models. Magellan's Maestro and Roadmate product lines, made for use in vehichle provide convenient touch-screen technology for better safety on the road.
  • Use voice-generating software. The in-dash models also provide guidance by voice instruction. Sit back and let the Magellan device tell you where to go, or reference detailed maps at your fingertips.
  • Use cell-phone type "button" controls on outdoor models like Magellan Triton and eXplorist. Use these keys to get data on speed, distance and location. These devices are also made for the outdoors, durable and ultra-portable.
  • Get the best of both worlds with the Magellan Crossover. This model comes with the features of a car model, but also fits into your pocket for outdoor trekking. Use the Crossover for activities like boating and geocaching, or mount it on your dash and get on the road. Versatile models like the Magellan CrossoverGPS are popular among those who are truly on the go.
Take care and good luck

When pulling up geocache map

This is a common problem when you enter geocaches or Waypoints in which you DID NOT SCRUB the html code. Start Deleting Geocaches until you find the bad one and all will return to normal.

Also investigate a program called GSAK and use its stripper before you load the geocaches.

First of all .. you must install Vantage Point to connect correctly from the PC to the GPS and also synchronize map on VP to PC map. Next you must use a scrubber like GSAK to remove garbage in the cache information. Then do you transfers to the GPS.

First I suggest that you download the latest manual for your unit. Magellan has the manuals

Now if you have the latest firmware loaded then one way is to press MENU .. go to create and pick Waypoint or Geocache and the new menu will allow you to pick coordinates as the method of entry.
