The issue may be compatability, some of the early AV versions do not work with this upgrade, Also, the site I posted these at put new limitations on file sizes and types and I can no longer post these online.

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...

Need User Manual for Finedrive 400


Finedrive GPS's are made by Navman. You might try there. You should know, though, that Finedrives are no longer available and their maps are NOT updateable.

I need a power switch for my FineDrive 400 GPS unit.


Finedrive units are made by Navman. Try them to see if they have parts available. Finedrives are no longer manufactured and their maps are not supported for updates.

Just trying to update my Finedrive 400.


The Finedrive line of GPS' were made by the same company that makes the Navman line. Sorry, they do not support the Finedrive line for map upgrades.

Fatal error


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.

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

Fatal Error Message


I have an older one of these with the AV connections. once in a while it does not see GPS signals. If I exit navigation and from the main menu select setup, I can reset the GPS and then go back into navigation, this seems to cure the issue but it may return. I think the root cause is a low memory battery in the unit.
