Question about Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

No Power? I think the block where you plug in the car adaptor is lose or broken. The unit keeps turning off then back on whenever it gets moved. Anyone know of a repair manual so I can take it apart and fix it or of a place to send it to get fixed?

Why does myGarmin 1350 keep losing external power and shutting down, then restart, sometimes losing current destination info, sometimes not.

Major problem with the Nuvi 13xx series as well as the 11xx, 12xx & 14xx series is a loose/broken USB jack in the back which is preventing power from remaining constant into the unit. This will also prevent the internal battery from being charged. We can repair this issue and reinforce the jack. Please see this link for more information:

Our magellan keeps turning off. the plug seem loose. could it be the cord or is it the battery and can it be changed

Check your power cord. You may be losing power at the plug. When plugged in it may be losing contact with the recepticle. The power indicator light initially comes on but, breaks contact and therefore stops charging the unit. If this is the case you can sometimes plug into an adapter and get a tighter fit.

Unit keeps losing power. Cord has power light and

I had the same problem. It was the pin inside the **** clamp that was broken. As I wiggled the plug in the unit the pin would dislodge. eventually the pin got lodged in the 12v power cord.

Magellan 2200T will not accept charge

Well, I am not sure if your problem is the same as mine. My unit stopped working as well after about 1.5 years.

I opened it up, thinking the battery might be a goner. But after opening it up and checking the battery with a voltmeter, it looked good.

On re-connecting the battery, everything worked fine...loose contact maybe? Its been working fine so far.

It may be the cradle is damaged. If any of those tongs are bent it could lose connection meaning your must now spend $70 to buy a new one which will also eventually malfunction. They've jacked up the price from $30 when I bought a new one to $70 in just a couple of years knowing it was a bad product and they keep breaking. I have a looooow opinion of Magellan at this point.

Restarting while in use

Mine just started doing the same thing. I took apart the speaker power cord, but don't see anything wrong with it. I thought I saw the unit turn off/on one time when I moved the cigarette plug back and forth, but as I said the wires are fine. I have the power cord apart right now and have 12 volts hooked up to the wires directly and the unit has been sitting here for 30 minutes without resetting.
