Question about Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

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

Hey Vince, how does one get the Finedrive 400 to look to the SD for an Operating System? when I turn it on, it goes straight to Navigation - is there some combination of buttons that needs to be pressed? would you know of any Documentation for the screens that come up for Hardware testing purposes? please advise. thanks, Stuart

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.

Fine Drive 400


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.

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.

Finedrive 400 error.


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.

Stuck


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...
