Fine Drive 400 GPs

I have a FineDrive 400 gps unit. When I plug it turns on but Ican't see anything on the screen. Sometimes it pops on and I can use it usually 1 out of 50 times.

I have a FD400 that has a good screen. I can sell it to you for $50. If you want it email me at svaughan1@gmail.com. It's pretty easy to swap them out.

That sounds like the inverter for the backlight is failing, you can probably make out a dark image when its out.

fine digital had a repair service for these, I think it was about $100...

I need a power switch for my FineDrive 400 GPS unit.


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.

My finedrive 400 was working properly, then 1 day I got into the vehicle and the display was erratic, it turned of the device then turned it back on and the touch screen does not work now?


At this point, the youngest Finedrive unit is about 8 years old. They were manufactured by Navman. If your display is bad, try them to get a new one. My educated guess is that will be expensive, so it might be more economical to get a new unit.

When its plug into the car it says error and wont allow us to access anything


It sounds like you have a corrupt op system in your unit. Unfortunately, FineDrive units were discontinued about 8 years ago. They were manufactured by Navman, but are not supported anymore in any fashion, no maps, no op system or anything.

How to update gps finedrive 400


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.

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.

Best Regards

Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver Problem


The company went bankrupt. I get a "unable to read map data error". Called for over a month, sent email after email. Finally contacted a company that fixes Finedrives and they told me the company (Fine Digital) is out of business and will not warranty the unit...ten months old at the time. The company who fixes these machines said that it would be cheaper to buy a new(different company) gps system compared to having them fix the Finedrive 400.
