Question about Fine Digital FineDrive 350 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My error message says "A GPS-signal is not available now...."

The entire message reads "A GPS-signal is not available now. navigation will start automatically when a GPS-signal is available." I do not understand how this is possible. My husband has a different brand GPS and he can get a GPS inside our house. He has even taken the FineDrive 350 outside but still gets the same message. What am I doing wrong (other than possibly making a mistake by buying this GPS)?

    It is a FineDrive 350.

    No, no warranty. I bought it from someone that bought it and left it sitting in the box for a long time. She sold it to me, and after I gave her the money, she said, "I don't even know if the thing works or not!" So, what a Joy (NOT) to find that I couldn't get a signal. I am wondering if an external antenna would help.

    I,ve never had a problem with my FineDrive 350 GPS. All of a sudden, starting last week, it constantly tells me it is searching for a satellite signal, and will not find a signal at all now. Could the sattelites be damaged or made un-operational by fine drive due to economy?

    I can not figure it out and everywhere I search, ITWO7VX can't find a ph # to talk with the company !

Try hinging the antenna out from the back and angling it so the words FineDrive point up at the sky. It often takes 5 or more minutes to find the satellite, but it always finds it.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

Bluetooth icon missing


The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
