IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS
The Magellan Triton is a navigation aid designed to assist you in arriving at your selected destination.
When using the Magellan Triton, these safety rules must be followed to prevent accidents that can
result in injury or death to yourself or others:
IN THE INTERESTS OF SAFETY, DO NOT USE THIS NAVIGATION DEVICE WHILE
DRIVING A VEHICLE.
Please do not try and change any settings on the Magellan Triton while driving. Come to a
complete stop or ask a passenger make any changes. Taking your eyes off the road is dangerous
and can result in an accident in which you or others could be injured.
USE GOOD JUDGEMENT
This product is an excellent navigation aid, but does not replace the need for careful
orienteering and good judgement. Never rely solely on one device for navigating.
USE CARE
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the U.S. Government, which is solely
responsible for the accuracy and maintenance of the GPS network. The accuracy of position
fixes can be affected by the periodic adjustments to GPS satellites made by the U.S.
government and is subject to change in accordance with the Department of Defence civil GPS
user policy and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. Accuracy can also be affected by poor
satellite geometry and obstructions, like buildings and large trees.
USE PROPER ACCESSORIES
Use only Magellan cables and antennas; the use of non-Magellan cables and antennas may
severely degrade performance or damage the receiver, and will void the warranty.

destination if a route is active) in a familiar graphical format.
Outside the compass are icons indicating the position of the sun and the
moon relative to your position and heading.
Inside the compass there are two arrows that can be displayed. The large
green arrow is your heading and is displayed only while moving. The
smaller, black arrow is the bearing to your next destination waypoint if
you have a route activated. When the two arrows are lined up together,
you are moving directly towards your destination. (Note that the compass
will rotate relative to North.)
The two data fields at the bottom of the display are customized by
following the instructions provided.

The Satellite Status Screen
The Satellite Status Screen graphically displays the satellites and their
signal strength that is being used to compute your location. This screen
shows when you are getting strong, weak, or poor signal reception. Green
satellite icons represent satellites that are being used to compute your
position while yellow (good), white (medium), and red (poor) icons show
signal strengths of other available satellites. Signal levels are also
represented at the bottom of the screen as colored bars.
The numbers indicate the GPS satellite ID while “W” indicates WAAS
(Wide Area Augmentation System) satellites.
There are also two customizable navigational screens displayed at the
bottom of the display.

Explanation of Data Field Types
Latitude (LAT)
Latitude is the coordinate measurement of North and South. The latitude lines run parallel to the
equator. They range from 0° (the Equator) to 90° N/S (the Poles)
Longitude (LON)
Longitude is the coordinate measurement of East and West. The longitude lines run to and from
the poles. They range from 0° (Prime Meridian) to 180° W/E (the International Date Line).
Heading
Heading is the direction a user is moving or facing, measured in
degrees relative to north. This tells you what direction you are
going.
Bearing
Bearing is the direction of a destination from the user, measured
in degrees relative to north. This tells you what direction to go. If
no Go To or Route is set, this will appear blank or dashes.
Distance to Next
Distance to Next is the measurement of distance from the user to the next destination point in a
route. In a route with multiple points, when the user arrives at one destination point, the unit
should switch its guidance to the next destination point in the route. If no Go To or Route is set,
this will appear blank or dashes.
Distance to End
Distance to End is the measurement of distance from the user to the final destination point in a
route. If no Go To or Route is set, this will appear blank or dashes.
Time to Next
Time to Next measures how much time it will take the user to arrive at the next destination point
in a route based on how fast the user is currently moving. If the user stops moving or moves away
from the next destination point, this number will become zero. If no Go To or Route is set, this
will appear blank or dashes.
Time to End
Time to End measures how much time it will take the user to arrive at the final destination point
in a route based on how fast the user is currently moving. If the user stops moving or moves in a
counterproductive direction, this number will zero out. If no Go To or Route is set, this will appear
blank or dashes.
Time
Time displays the current time based on the settings of the active profile.
Date
Date displays the current date based on the settings of the active profile.
Destination
Destination measures the number of degrees a user must turn to match their heading to their
bearing. It is displayed in the number of degrees L/R (Left or Right) and is in relation to the user,
not north.
Navigation Screens
14
Cross Track Error (XTE)
Cross Track Error measures how far the user is off the trail or route. If no Go To or Route is set,
this will appear blank or dashes.
Elevation
Elevation measures the height above or below Sea Level which is 0.
Current Speed
Current Speed measures how fast the user is travelling.
Average Speed
Average Speed calculates the average speed of the user.
Maximum Speed
Maximum Speed records the highest speed achieved by the user.
Distance Made Good (DMG)
Distance Made Good measures (in distance) the progress the user has made to a final destination
point. This may be a negative distance if the user moves away from the target point. If no Go To
or Route is set, this will appear blank or dashes.
Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA)
Estimated Time of Arrival displays the time of day the user should arrive at a destination. If no Go
To or Route is set, this will appear blank or dashes.
Accuracy
Accuracy calculates the margin of error the user can expect based on their satellite reception.
The smaller the number is, the better the accuracy. Normally the accuracy is around 10-30 ft (310 m). Things that interfere with satellite reception may decrease the accuracy (increase the
number) such as heavy canopies from trees, tunnels, tall buildings, canyons, broadcast satellites,
and other GPS receivers too close in proximity.
Velocity Made Good (VMG)
Velocity Made Good calculates how fast the user is closing their distance to a destination point,
not how fast the user is moving. If the user is traveling directly towards the destination point the
number should match the Current Speed. If the user is travelling off the direct course to a final
destination point, the number should reflect slower than the Current Speed because less actual
progress is being made. If the user is moving away from the destination point, the numbers should
be negative. If the user is standing still or moving around a consistent radius of the destination
point, the number should be zero.

Waypoints
Waypoints are the key to navigating and creating routes. An understanding of waypoints and their use
is important to get the most out of your Magellan Triton.
In its simplest form, a waypoint is a point on the map. The Magellan Triton uses waypoints much the
same as you use addresses to get from your home to your destination. With information on where you
are and a waypoint of where you want to go, the Triton can provide the necessary information to get
you there.
The Magellan Triton has three different classifications for waypoints; User-Created, Place and
Geocache waypoints.
User-created waypoints are waypoints you define. This can be done by saving your current
location, picking a point on the map or by entering waypoint coordinates.
Place waypoints are waypoints that have been preloaded into the base map or one of the optional
detail maps. You cannot add Place waypoints but you can use them when creating a route.
Geocache waypoints are special waypoints that are used for geocaching. More information on
geocache waypoints can be found in the chapter on geocaching, but they are used the same as
user-created and place waypoints in creating a route.
Waypoint Detail Screen Overview
Whenever a waypoint is being created, the Waypoint Detail screen is
displayed. This screen provides a way to enter data, modify existing data
or set alarm requirements for the waypoint.
The Magellan Triton automatically assigns a name for the waypoint using
the convention of WPxxxx for newly created waypoints. It is a good
practice, and will avoid confusion later, if you enter a unique name for
each waypoint.
The Waypoint Details screen consists of three pages that can be
accessed by pressing the PAGE / GO TO button.
Waypoint

Used to enter or modify data for the waypoint. This screen also provides
information on the direction and distance to the waypoint from your
current location.
The green checkmark is for accepting the waypoint and saving it to the
Triton memory.

Geocache Waypoints
Geocaching is a popular activity with GPS users. People will hide caches (“treasures”) and record the
latitude and longitude for the cache. They post these locations on geocaching web sites that can be
found on the internet. You then enter these geocache waypoints into your Magellan Triton either by
creating a geocache waypoint or by saving the geocache file from the internet, adding it to the
VantagePoint software and uploading it into the Magellan Triton.
For additional information on geocaching and geocaching events, go to http://www.geocaching.com or
do a search on geocaching for other geocaching sites. Premium members of Geocaching.com can
transfer .gpx files directly into the VantagePoint software and then transfer the information into their
Magellan Triton.

Routes
There are two types of routes that are commonly used in the Magellan Triton, Go To route and Multileg
route. A third type of route, Backtrack route, is also commonly used and is described in the chapter
on Trails.
A Go To route is the simplest route possible. It begins at your current location and goes to a single
destination you select. This is often referred to as a single leg route. An example would be you are at
your camp and want to go back to a scenic area you saved as a waypoint during your last hike. You
would create a Go To route by selecting the waypoint for the scenic area as the destination. The
Magellan Triton would then plot a straight line from your location to the destination waypoint and
provide you with updated information as you travel to get you to your destination. As you hike, the
Magellan Triton continuously updates the information giving you the best possible directions to get
you to your destination.
A Multileg route is a series of Go To routes strung together. Using the same scenario as above, only
this time you want to go to get supplies first and you know the position of a bridge you need to cross.
For this route it would go from your current location, to the store, to the bridge and finally to the
scenic spot. This multileg route consists of three Go To routes. Once the route is activated, the
Magellan Triton will begin providing navigation information to get you to the store. After arriving at
the store it will automatically begin providing information to get you to the bridge, and then the scenic
spot. Another useful feature of multileg routes is that they can be saved into memory and used over
and over.
Tip: If you want to save a single leg go to route into memory, use the Create Route function and
create a route with one leg.

Trails
As you travel with the Magellan Triton on and computing your position, the Magellan Triton
automatically drops electronic breadcrumbs to record your travels. These breadcrumbs are temporary
waypoints that are created and stored while you travel. You can set the intervals that they are created
in the Tracks Option function described in this chapter.
The common term for these breadcrumbs is track. You may be familiar with this term from other
navigation devices you’ve used. A trail is taking the current track and saving it into memory. This
trail can be used again like any other saved route.
An important safety feature of a trail is the Backtrack option. Since the Triton is recording your
movement, it can be used to reverse this track and provide navigation information back to your
starting point, following the same path you have just taken.
Tip: Whenever beginning a hike that you might want to use backtrack route with, clear the track
memory (described in this chapter) before beginning the hike.
Trails are displayed on the Map screen as dotted lines.
