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.

Geocache list doesn't show on gps


Basecamp is displaying the contents of the gpx file. This means you've correctly imported the gpx file into Basecamp.

A copy of the gpx file needs to be separately saved into the "GARMIN/GPX" folder on your GPS via USB and your computer. (Note: I believe your Oregon has the same file structure as my Garmin Montana).

On startup, your GPS will read the new data and display the caches.

Magellan gps Triton 300 series Jamed up; Reads when turned on ; Internal Error Your Triton has encountered an unexpected error and must shut down. Please wait while your data is saved.


The problem with your magellan triton is that there is a file missing in the support file that allows the triton come on properly hereby leading it to jam.
The solution is for you to get your triton connected to a computer, then you back up the software on the computer, format the triton then you restore the software and maps on the triton. Then your triton will be in good condition once again.
Hope this information helped.

When turned on the triton 400 gps will read; internal error.... your triton has encountered an unexpected error and must shut down....please wait while your data is saved.


This problem is caused by a corrupted software file on the internal memory. The chip has to be reflashed. If under warranty return the unit to Magellan.

Ihave bought a new, still in the box Magellan triton 200 unit and usb cable for geocaching. unfortinitly it wont send co-ords from my pc to my gps unit. i am using windows vista basic. why does it not...


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.

I have a Magellan Triton 400 and it stays on for about one minute


Jaime, What happened here is that somehow you copied files from a firmware upgrade that was different than the upgrade you have on the machine originally and these mixed up files are causing the INTERNAL ERROR.

Unless your are a software expert you will not be able to recover your GPS. There are some solutions which recommend that you turn the unit into the development mode and then copy the firmware version to the GPS. But people who recommend this method also warn you that you could turn your unit into a "BRICK".

So either return the unit to Magellan for an exchange or go to your browser and look up the jungle ghost repair center.

Displays sys error session manager initialization terminated unexpectedly status of 0xc00026c (0x00000000 0x00000000)


smss.exe is the process that manages sessions in Windows Computer. This is the session manager subsystem, which is responsible for starting the user session. This process is initiated by the main system thread and is responsible for various activities, including launching the Winlogon and Win32 (Csrss.exe) processes, and setting system variables. After it has launched these processes, it waits for either Winlogon or Csrss to end. If this happens normally, the system shuts down; if it happens unexpectedly, smss.exe causes the system to stop responding (hang).

In this case, I suggest that you start the "smss.exe" process manually from the Task Manager. You can press the "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" together to display the Task Manger window. Then, click on the Applications tab then the "new task" tab located at the bottom. In the New task dialog box, please type "smss.exe" and click OK.

However, you can also perform System Restore to restore the Windows System files to the time when it operated normally. Performing System restore will not delete any saved data however, all the installed programs after the selected restored point will be unistalled and require to reinstall them.

When loading saved game data I get a Data corrupt message


You need to make sure you have updated the PS3 as well as the games. You said you wait until the game is done saving, well just to make sure, check the HDD light isn't flashing (writing information). Also you should not just shut down from the game, quit game then shut down the system. If you are shutting it down with the switch in the back, shut down "softly" (holding down the PS button and selecting shutdown) then turn off in the back.

I can't view detail maps on my new Triton 400


The RED X is a symbol when the maps you have do not match the serial number of the GPS you are trying to run them on. You have to use the Adventure Pack and create NEW MAPS with the present GPS attached.

Geocaching with Garmin Etrex Legend CX


The preloaded maps are VERY generic, mostly major highways. They are not useful for geocaching.

The good news is that you can download free topo maps created by a very generous Canadian soul, Dale Atkin. The maps are free but donations are accepted. He is also working on US topo maps. I've used Ibycus and Garmin topo maps and prefer the Ibycus version.
If this solves your situation, please come back and rate our answer. Thankyou.
