anyone have a problem connecting their gps to their computer

Recommended Posts

I have read somewhere that on an Explorist GPS your USB can either be used like a thumb drive or as a communication port. It all depends on how you connect it to the computer, I.E. If the GPS is ON or OFF when you connect it. Perhaps it also has a setting inside it like my IPOD/like music device which is a 20Gig drive if I tell it to be that.


Your Triton is probably the same, as Magellan engineers seem to use the same old, and mostly incorrect, way of doing things.

I have had the same communication issue with my computer and explorist. When I called the magellan help line it ended up that the communication cable that came with the unit was faulty and they sent me a new one right away. Problem solved.


I also had all the driver download issues that you have been advised to follow as well that I went completed prior to calling them.
