    Just received a fine drive 400, but no SD card with needed maps to use it. Anyone know where I can download the map files? I tried the flyupload thing. What a total **** site! You can only download small files from there. Anything big, like over 50 meg, it just stops after a while and you can never get the whole file. Plus it tries to dump a bunch of junk adware on your computer. If anyone has the maps, I'd be glad to send you a blank cd or dvd to put them on? Let me know.

Triton 400 can't load topo says sd card no space but has 2gb unused and just formatted


Hopefully your are using an SD or SDHC flash card that meets Sandisk SDA 2.0 specifications.

The problem could also be the NG TOPO software .. please go to jungleghost.com for instructions on how to solve this problem.

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.

This is a common problem with these units, it happens if the unit is shut off while its writing data to the SD card.

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...

Cant copy DVD software to SD


write me at vince954@yahoo.com if this does not work. On the dvd there is also a zipped version of the map_sd directory, copy it to your pc and unzip it and then copy the contents to your sd card. as the file is so large, some dvd drives have issues reading it.
