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...

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.

I have a Finedrive 400 GPS unit. Is their a place that I can download the driver for Windows XP, and then update the map? The unit works OK now. We have had it for about 10 years. Thanks, Mike

FineDrive 400's were manufactured by Navman, but are not supported anymore in any fashion, no updated maps, no op system upgrades, no Windows drivers or anything. If and when it malfunctions, you may be forced to get another unit.

Map is stuck on an old location and won't change to the new location on the map

take the unit outside so that it has a clear view to the open sky, turn the unit on, then push the reset onthe side(you need a paper clip) youll know its reset once you see the magellan logo screen with the black loading bar on the bottom. let in sit outside to Aguire the satellites. this may take upto 30 minutes. if that does not work, you can try the latest update. bill

Try removing the memory card, then performing the problematic functions, then shut off the unit. Wait 5 minutes, insert memory card, turn on unit and perform functions again, see if it works.

Findedrive 400 doesn't read the SD for Operating System Update.

I read somewhere that if you hold the home key on power up it should go to windows CE rather than into the nav program. I dont have one to test right now but if it works, please let me know.

A problem with My FineDrive 400

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.

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.
