Re: stuck on welcome

The finedrive screen stuck could be a firmware issue, you may need to reload the firmware. you can find disks for it on the finedigitalusa site.

the error coudl be a corrupted memory card, I had this once. it either give you an error or tells you the card is not inserted. again, the solution is to reload the card with map data.

How To Reset Your Magellan Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units

Factory Reset
Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.
  1. Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
  2. Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
  3. If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.
If your Maestro GPS Touch Screen Doesn't work, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. Remove the Magellan Maestro from the holding cradle.
  2. Hold down the "Power" button on the right side of the device, until the unit powers on.
  3. Straighten the end of a paper clip. Place the paper clip in the reset hole, located on the left side of the GPS unit. Hold down the "Reset" button for 10 seconds. Remove the paper clip.
  4. Turn the Magellan Maestro unit off by holding down the "Power" button. Turn the unit back on again. The device is now reset.

If your Roadmate GPS is locked up, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. On the RoadMate, press + + - - + -
  2. The "hidden menu" will appear.
  3. From there, you can access the shell and perform a hard reset.

When I stop and turn off my car, my Garmin 255W stays on. Hows do I turn it off?

If your GPS is plugged into your power outlet in your car, it just means that the power outlet retains power when your vehicle is off as well. Meaning it is not an "Accessory" power source. Not a big deal, simply slide the power button on your garmin unit to the left. The power button is located on the top left side of the GPS. It is spring loaded so when you slide it to the left, hold it there for a second then it will spring back into place. Just release it and the unit should power down.

Stuck with pre boot mode on screen

"Will not turn off, stuck on with display saying 'pre boot mode'. Does nothing but this - please help!"

This indicates that the on/off switch is shorted out. You can duplicate this problem by taking a working Nuvi and keep holding down the on/off button when turning it on. It will stay in this mode until you let off on the power on/off button.

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.
