You may actually have more than one issue. the startup issue may be solved by reloading the firmware if its just that but if your unit has other damage you may not be able to recover it. try booting with the home button held pressed, this should take you to windows ce. if it does then you may have a chance. the calibration for the screen can be done once you can run the unit but not gettign a fix could be even a faulty antenna.

I created a dvd with the firmware and map data upgrades, its on ebay if you search for finedrive dvd. its way cheaper than what fine digital used to sell similar dvds for.

How to down load music on ur finedrive 400 can u plz help me out

Finedrive units use mp3 format music files. If you plug it into your computer and accumulate a collection and then transfer it to the music folder on the Finedrive, it should work. If it doesn't, Finedrives were made my the Navman company and they may be able to supply you with a manual.

My finedrive 400 was working properly, then 1 day I got into the vehicle and the display was erratic, it turned of the device then turned it back on and the touch screen does not work now?

At this point, the youngest Finedrive unit is about 8 years old. They were manufactured by Navman. If your display is bad, try them to get a new one. My educated guess is that will be expensive, so it might be more economical to get a new unit.

Finedrive 400 help

Finedrive is basically gone so dont count on support. looks like your firmware got corrupted, this can happen if you shut down the unit while its trying to write data to memory.

I have not seen this myself but other users reprot that the repair dvd I made can fix this, I will have one listed on ebay in the next week or so... just search for finedrive dvd.

that one is tricky, you could simply have corrupt firmware files for the finedrive application or even a bad SD card, however, you could also have a faulty unit that is not loading the operating system.

you could try my repair dvd (selling on ebay) on it but if you have a probelm with the operating system this will not fix it...

We have noticed that the tech support numbers no longer work, I think the office closed. from your description I think you have to reload the firmware, the only way to do this is to get the upgrade dvd. if you email me at I will see if I can help.

Your screen brightness may be set too low. Try pushing the upper right button and see if you can get to the display options page. Adjust the brightness and/or volume at this page as well. If no results, you may have to have it serviced.
