Question about GPS

Uniden GPS352 can't start

Uniden GPS352 fails to start up. It powers on and gives the splash screen... Uniden MapTrax.... Then proceeds to load maps and establish satellite communication. Error message comes up (in MicroSoft format) "Cannot find 'PocketMap Navigator.exe' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and fileneme are correct and that all the required libraries are available." Checked memory card on my PC and the files were listed. Tried to download program updates from Uniden. Not successful.... nothing changed. I suspect that the memory card or its files are corrupt. Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

I have a nuvi 265w garmin. It turns on and then turns off without loading the map


The GPS battery may need to be charged.
Does the GPS turn on when connected to a vehicle power cable?

Running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest software will usually fix any bugs.

Contact Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

Need map of England for my Uniden 3.5 gps

no one can help you until we know what maps it uses. Many unidens were sent out with different brand maps

Igo Igo8 Navig8tor Polstar Insync Destinator etc etc.

No maps are free You need to contact Uniden because just buying a map will not work It has to be written for the Uniden engine.

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

My finedrive 400 doesn't show anything on the screen

does it boot at all? you should see the finedrive splash screen, then the main menu for a second or so, then it tries to load maps, how far does yours get?

if it boots but does not load maps or if it gives you an error then you have two options:

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

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.

Now, if it does not boot at all, no splash screen, you could have other issues, if there is an image but no backlight (hard to see but try looking at an angle) and you get responses to key presses, then your backlight could have failed.

if it seems to lock up on boot try holding down the two right hand keys on power up, this should bring up windows CE, if it does you may have a chance at recovering by manually running the repair data I sell to recover the firmware.
