Question about Magellan Triton 400 Handheld GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Unable to create DirectX device. Vantage Point will be closed.

I have got a Magellan Triton 400 which has been bought a few days ago (July 2009). I installed Vantage Point from the installation CD which Geomatics Ltd. (Magellan Turkish Dealer) prepared I guess. Then I downloaded Vantage Point 1.60 from the magellangps.com website. Always the same problem, my O.S. is Windows XP Professional, .NET Frame 2.0 installed and 1024x768 resolution, 32bits real colour settings are chosen. When you click on the V.P. icon, in a few seconds warning appears saying that "Unable to create DirectX device. Vantage Point will be closed."

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.

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.
