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.

SOURCE: Magellan triton 500 freezes up

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.

Go to http://www.magellangps.com/support/ punch in the serial number from your unit. It will take you to a page where you can download a software update.

Plug in the magellan and turn it on to connect it. Run the updater.

After this it will work.

My magellan triton 500 will not fully turn on. It statrts to load the bat goes all the way and then freezes. I can not turn it off either.


You need to reset the magellan triton 500, then it will fully come on and stay on. To reset this type of magellan. What you have to do is to take out the battery and reinstall it back in. That should do the job for you, and if that does not solve the problem, then you have to back up the maps on a computer then format the triton then restore the software and maps back on it. Now am assuring you that will do the job.
Hope this information helped you.

We are trying to set up our Navigation options correctly on our Triton 500. How should we have them set up? We are in the USA, Idaho.


In the USA you would set: Lat/Long as Deg.min.sec or UTM .. Compass at True North and Datum at WGS84. This assumes that your maps were constructed at datum WGS84 which is current standard.

This is a problem with the internal memory files. They have been corrupted. It is too complicated to fix yourself. If the is out of warranty, the Jungle Ghost at http://www.jungleghost.com/repair_service.shtml has a repair service.

Assuming that you have the latest firmware installed. Do a MENU>>VIEW>>SETTINGS and then using the down arrow to scroll down. The Date and time and language and power settings are out of sight. scrool down and you will see date and time.

Big problem .. you had a bad firmware download and the unit is now stuck in the development mode. Two solutions .. 1) return to Magellan for a replacement. 2) If not in warranty .. there is a third party repair center on the internet .. use your browser and search for 'magellan triton repair'

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.
