Fine Drive 400 Software/Maps

My FD400 will only show the map for the Fresno,CA area. It will not access the SD card with mapping software. It only shows a blue screen with an arrow for my area (PA). I receive all GPS info and can play mp3's but no maps. My SD card has to be corrupted or something wrong with internal program. Any help is appreciated. All functions work except trying to access mapping software on card. I do have the lantern in the lower left corner.

You internal GPS antenna does not work.
Buy an external GPS antenna for FD400
on eBay $10+$10 shipping = $20

How to input an address that is in France?

Many Garmin units have a menu item that shows a list of installed maps. The main map is usually located on the GPS's internal memory. Any additional is likely found on the SD card.
When you access the menu / setup and choose maps, you will see both maps. Make sure that you uncheck the map in the main memory (USA perhaps?) and check the map that holds the area you wish to use (Europe?).
When you view the maps on the GPS next time, you should see the maps for the selected area and be prompted for locations that make sense for that area. Simply reverse the steps above to get back to the main internal maps when you return.
I hope this helps!

I have the issue with my finedrive 400 where there is no maps... can u help?

Finedrive is no longer selling the FD400 in the us and provide no support so getting an update from them is no longer possible. one dealer sells an upgrade disk for $150
I made a DVD that I sell on ebay (search for finedrive dvd) for basically the cost of labor and materials, it updates the firmware and map data to the last version issued (2007) for this mode. you need a PD, SD card reader and good DVD drive to do the update, instructions are included...

Loading music to finedrive 400

you have to use an SD card with your MP3s in it, I dont think there is much room left in the factory SD card with maps and you probably dont want to risk erasing it anyway. just remember to put the map card back in before navigating.
