You need to reload the firmware in the unit and reload the map data on the SD card, this will fix your issues. as finedrive is not around anymore, here are the files:

Fatal application error when i go to navigation.


This is a common issue, probably corrupt firmware in your unit and/or the sd card.

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

Fatal application error


this is a common problem, its caused by corrupt data on the SD card. it happens when the unit is powered down while its saving data. to avoid it you want to shut down using the menu or exit navigation before shutting down.

now, you have 3 options:

Option one: 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

Option two: 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. or C&C also offers a repair service for about $150.

Option 3 Because Fine Digtal closed their doors and left us all stranged, 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. to find it, search ebay for finedrive dvd...

Finedrive 400 Maps & data card


Ok So I now have these 2 files on my pc, virus free. One is the Map_SD and one is the Install_SD. I unzipped them to folders of the same name.

Can I simply copy and paste both folders into a 1gb sd card and it will work ( I have to buy an sd card so Id like to make sure)

Thanks

yup, the data card can get corrupted. I have seen the update disks on ebay. if your unit has a symbol in the bottom left of the screen that looks like a lantern, you also have an old firmware version. the upgrade woudl be the way to go.

These units use a standard 1gb SD card.... I have several of these units and bought the upgrade for a couple that were old. I did have the same problem with one, had to format the card, reload the map data and problem solved.
