This message is caused by corrupt internal software. In most cases you have to reflash the SDRAM card. Please visit http://www.jungleghost.com/repair_service.shtml as they do this kind of work.

Magellan Triton, continues to get fatal application error. What can be done to correct this situation?


Your problem stems from a corrupt software file in the internal memory of the GPS. Unfortunately, the problem is too complicated for you to solve. I really do not know of any people beside Magellan that repair the 200. The Jungle Ghost repairs 300 400 500 1500 and 2000's and maybe he can help you out. Check with www.jungleghost.com

My magellan triton 500 was left on all night. After replacing the batteries it only comes to the first screen, fills the progress bar and freezes, won't shut off. I've tried removing the sd card - no...


When the batteries died .. a problem was created 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. He works for Magellan Distributors to fix their units.

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.

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.

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.
