I found a couple of thing you can try:

Resetting the GPS
The GPS reset function is helpful when the device doesnt
recognize your current location properly. If the device doesnt
recognize the current location for a while, please try the
following procedure before returning it to the retailer.

Park your vehicle at a safe place free of
obstructions
Select the Setting on the Home Screen.
Select the GPS Reset icon.
Tap the GPS Reset icon.
Allow up to 5 minutes for the Finedrive 400 to
locate a GPS signal
Contact Technical Support if your current position
is repeatedly not detectable

Setting Touchpad Calibration
In very rare cases, if the Finedrive 400 stops moving completely
and you cannot activate any of the buttons, it could be a
touchpad calibration issue. Use the touch calibration function
when touch pad is not working at all. Try the following
procedure before returning it to the retailer.

If you need access to the user guide you can find it here: http://www.finedigitalusa.com/2006/support/FD400_UserGuide.pdf

I hope this helps as I couldnt find any other info related to your error issue.

Its probably a bad SD card, if a firmware upgrade doesn't work, then try a different card, if that doesn't work, then we can look into other possible causes but the SD card is the best bet

ANSWERING MACHINE


Sherry:
I believe that some how the security code #99 got changed. You may want to reset that code as #99 no longer works. From the manual:

Setting a Personal Security Code (PIN)

If you want to be able to play your messages from a remote location, you need to enter a two-digit Personal

Identification Number (PIN) code (01-99).

To select a PIN, perform the following steps:

1) With the phone in standby, press [menu/clock] twice.

The system announces "Security code," and the current PIN code is announced as it is displayed on the base.

Then the system announces the instructions for setting the PIN code.

2) Press [volume/select/ ] or [volume/select/ ] until the desired number appears.

3) Press [set] to select the PIN code. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement "Security code"

followed by the new PIN code is announced. After a few seconds, the system announces "To set ring time, press

menu again."
Note: The PIN code is set to "80" at the factory.

Turn Signals quit working


Sounds like the turn signal flasher is going bad. The easy way to find wher the flasher is hidden is turn the turn signal on and find the clicking, that is the flasher. The emergency flashers work fine because they use a different flasher.

I had the same problem, i switched the camera on in capture mode and zoomed in and applied a little pressure to the lens which made a slight click but retracted and has worked fine since. I may of just been lucky but the camera is fully functional again, could be worth a try.
