This problem is most caused by two possible errors. One the maps were not prepared correctly.

Two your navigation settings are wrong. Please reset the datum to WGS84 and see if this helsp.

Purchesed download for magellan western canada map and cannot download to my triton 400 gps


Hopefully the download is an .imi or .rmp file and the serial number is matched to your GPS. If so, just move the map to your SD card under the folder /MAP_DATA. Start your GPS and activate it.

The map has to be authorized by Magellan so make sure it is to your GPS serial number.

How to do I reset for a Triton 400 to recognize current location


Normally the GPS will be positioned over your current location, once you have a GPS FIX.

Use your profiles and find GPS FIX and make sure it is ON.

If the black caret ^ moves but the map does not you have a problem with the T400.

When in trouble enter the ESC button and see if your problem goes away.

While traveling to Nova Scotia last week, my Garmin Street Pilot c530 was telling that i was on an unpaved road, but i was on route 2 in New brunswick Canada


Don't believe everything you see on a GPS. Garmin does not update their maps as they should; I found this even after I purchased their map update. I drove 48 states in a big rig, over many new roads not found or shown on the Garmin maps. My streetpilot usually went into a hiccup mode, recalculating -- recalculating -- recalculating. All the while, it tried to get me to detour on whatever spurious local roads happened to show up along the way.

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.

Wrong street numbers


This sounds like a more advanced mapping error in itself. It could be possible the mapping data is incorrect, or has been corrected, but not yet incorporated within new map updates. You've taken all the right steps to correct it on your own so your next best bet is to verify the inaccuracy with TomTom. Perhaps borrow a friend's TomTom and if their street names are accurate, your device might simply be defective, in which case you can request a new unit.

In the last week I have bought 2 tomtom ones. one was a 125 the other a 130. Both have given me the same problem. On arrival of my destination it is taking me anywhere from 1/8 mile to 1/2 mile away from...


First thing to check is make sure your maps are up to date. Run your device through TomTom Home and make the proper updates. 1/2 a mile away seems too far of a distance to be off by. I've taken trips on my TomTom and even other brands for that matter, and it is not unusual to be slightly off or announce the arrival a few hundred feet too early. If it is navigating you to the wrong street, you need to update your maps. The maps are very reliable on my device so use that as a starting point.

Street Map Program for Garmin GPSMAP 295


Detailed road map data, with addresses, hotels, gas stations, etc. can be loaded into a data-card/cartridge/memory-card using Garmin's Mapsource software such as Metroguide or City Navigator. This can be changed as needed via a PC.
The 295 does not have driving routing/guidance through the streets as most of today's GPSs have, but it will show you exactly where you are on the street (but it should be switched to Road mode).
Driving routing is possible on the PC using Mapsource, but ithe route doesn't transfer well to the 295 because of the limits on waypoints.

Route calculation error


I was having the same problem and contacted Garmin support.

What I had done was turned off the Basemap that came with the unit. I only had the mapsource map street map on which I had purchased separately.

The technician basically said the unit needed the basemap to "locate itself". Somehow the basemap supports any maps you purchase separately. That seemed odd but once I turned the Basemap back on it calculated the routes and the error message went away.

If you have the Basemap off, try turning it on from the Map Setup - Information window.

Hope this helped.

The unit has stuck on a location miles away


If you were panning the map while navigating, the map on the display will stay where you panned to; despite the fact that you are still moving. You need to exit "pan" mode by pressing the PAGE button (right side, top button). Good Luck.
