try plugging it in to the computer and updating it. chances are it could be a bug in the software and it should be fixed in the newest software update.

If the unit will connect to your computer you can try copying all files from one GPS to the other. Just be sure not to copy over the *.UNL file. That contains the unlock information for that specific device. This may get the unit running. If you get the error can not unlock maps after doing this try updating the map again. If the above fails please call Garmin for assistance. 1.800.800.1020

I got files from internet to update 2009 map for my gps, but I don't know how to get them into the gps.


1. Download the SONYNAVU_U73T_3.2.CN.BIN file to a temporary or download directory.
2. Connect your nav-u personal navigation device to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
3. Power on your nav-u personal navigation device and wait until the "Connect to PC" message is displayed on the nav-u screen.
4. Start the nav-u Tool software on the computer.
5. At the "nav-u tool" window, click "Upgrade System".
6. On the right side of the Upgrade Screen, verify that the target version is 3.00.
7. On the left side of the Upgrade Screen, click the "Browse" button, and go to the directory where the SONYNAVU_U73T_3.2.CN.BIN file was downloaded and then click "OK".
8. In the "Name" box, click to select "3.02 cn NV-U73T" update, and then click the button.
9. After the update file is transferred to the nav-u device a "Transferring Upgrade file completed." message is displayed on the computer.
10. After the system software update is complete, the nav-u device will automatically shut down and restart.

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.

How to format the internal memory, then you can just reinstall the software and maps.
  1. Click My Computer and right-click the Removable Disk for your TomTom device and then click Format.

  2. Make sure FAT32 is selected under File system.

  3. Do not tick Quick Format.

  4. Click Start.

  5. Click OK.
    Windows formats your device.
