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.

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.

Bad News.. somehow you corrupted the internal software of the GPS. If the unit is in warranty, please return it to Magellan

Triton 400 connects to PC but does not accept selected NG Topo maps. Message appears that there is no space on SD chip when indeed it is empty and formatted. There is no problem with the contacts either.


OK .. first of all there is a rule "NEVER RUN VP AND NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOFTWARE AT THE SAME TIME!!"

This problem usually occurs when the NG software has been loaded incorrectly.

Here is the solution:

1) Uninstall the NG software from your computer.
2) Use the Triton CD_ROM and load the sample NG software (This version 4.4.0)
3) Now update the 4.4.0 to 4.4.3

Now you have the correct software. Just reload your maps from the NG CD_ROM data disks and you are OK.

I cannot access any of the maps I loaded onto my SD card


First of all, the maps must be created and match the serial number of the GPS you will run it on. Next the maps must be transferred to the SD card in the directory /MAP_DATA The GPS always looks at this directory for any map.

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.

Windows XP will not recognize Garmin 200W


I had the same issue. I would plug it in and it would recognize the device then it would disappear.

What I did to solve the problem was to first turn on my Gamin 200w. After it was finished loading maps then I plugged in in to the usb port. My machine recognized the device without any problems. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope that helps.
