Try doing a GPS reset, exit navigation, tap on setup and go to gps reset, this may clear old almanac data from the gps receiver. if not, you may have one that is loosing its memory.

Finedrive units are made by Navman. Try them to see if they have parts available. Finedrives are no longer manufactured and their maps are not supported for updates.

Hello boxermom22,

Fine Digital appears to still be supporting the FineDrive 400. To get service on the unit call them at 866-346-3344 during normal West Coast business hours or follow the Return Authorization procedure on their website.

We have noticed that the tech support numbers no longer work, I think the office closed. from your description I think you have to reload the firmware, the only way to do this is to get the upgrade dvd. if you email me at vince954@yahoo.com I will see if I can help.

Reset


both cases could be due to a dead memory battery. these have a very tiny button battery in them to keep some memory such as GPS position. if it dies then the GPS may take longer to get a fix and data such as your last position is gone each time you boot.
