Finedrive 400 Install instructions


files are too big to email or post:

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.

Fine drive 400 map data files


you can buy a 1gb sd card but then you have to get matching map data files, if you know someone with the same unit you could try copiying their data but it has to be the same date or you will get an error. the files themselves are too big to email or post online in most sites.

I created a repair DVD with both the firmware update and last map update issued by fine digital before closing in the US and leaving us all high and dry. there is a company called C&C wireless that sells a similar dvd for $109. I sell mine on ebay for $18 plus shipping. will be posting one there this week.
