This is a common problem with these units, it happens if the unit is shut off while its writing data to the SD card.

one solution is to visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see http://www.finedrive-acc.com/shop.cart?action=ITEM&prod_id=F400-08CP

The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.

Finedrive 400 Maps & data card


Ok So I now have these 2 files on my pc, virus free. One is the Map_SD and one is the Install_SD. I unzipped them to folders of the same name.

Can I simply copy and paste both folders into a 1gb sd card and it will work ( I have to buy an sd card so Id like to make sure)

Thanks

you need to reload the firmware in the unit and reload the map data on the SD card, this will fix your issues. as finedrive is not around anymore, here are the files:

Loading music to finedrive 400


you have to use an SD card with your MP3s in it, I dont think there is much room left in the factory SD card with maps and you probably dont want to risk erasing it anyway. just remember to put the map card back in before navigating.
