You have corrupt software in the internal system. If the unit is in warranty .. return it to Magellan

When I power up all I get is the Magellan Triton screen. My pc does not recognise the device also


1.Ok, if you have tried the manual update and it won't work then the thing to do is download this file:
http://www.lenwoodcc.org/triton/t500tfat2.zip

To download the file just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted section of text just above.

2.And then connect your GPS your computer and start it in the developers mode - which should make it connect to your computer as a USB driver.

To start your GPS in developer mode ,simultaneously press and hold the POWER - LIGHT - UP ARROW buttons as you start the GPS.
Want to get out of this mode, you can reboot the unit by simultaneously pressing and holding the POWER - SELECT - ESC buttons or just take out one of the batteries.

3.Next unzip the T500TFAT2.ZIP file to a directory on your hard drive. Once you have that unzipped go to "My Computer" and access the TFAT directory on your Triton and erase all of the files on it. Then copy all of the files from the T500TFAT2 file that I sent you. Once you have the new files in place then disconnect your Triton from the computer and reboot it and see if it works.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Bought a 250gb hard drive to put into new x box slim console to play an original x box game....still will not play or recognize the game (SNK vs CAPCOM) what am I missing??? Do I need a disk to download???


Hi there, not all original Xbox games can be played on the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim, I came across the same problem myself. I have checked the compatible games lists and cannot find the game you mention on any of them so I am presuming that this game unfortunately will not play on the Xbox 360.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

Will not go to the regular menu screen, screen has at top - file, run, hdd, update, help but will not do anything and i can't get back to regular menu


This screen is called the "Development Screen". It appears when the internal files on the GPS are corrupt. The unit needs to be reflashed because you have corrupted file(s) onthe internal memory of the unit.

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

Triton 500 freeze up on the first screen " Magellan Triton". How to hard reset other than remove and replace batteries, since this option does not help? Thanks.


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.

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 400 update failed unit stuck in white screen


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!

Magellan Triton 400 update failed unit stuck in white screen


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.
