Fine Drive 400 GPs

I have a FineDrive 400 gps unit. When I plug it turns on but Ican't see anything on the screen. Sometimes it pops on and I can use it usually 1 out of 50 times.

I have a FD400 that has a good screen. I can sell it to you for $50. If you want it email me at [email protected]. It's pretty easy to swap them out.

That sounds like the inverter for the backlight is failing, you can probably make out a dark image when its out.

fine digital had a repair service for these, I think it was about $100...

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.

When its plug into the car it says error and wont allow us to access anything


It sounds like you have a corrupt op system in your unit. Unfortunately, FineDrive units were discontinued about 8 years ago. They were manufactured by Navman, but are not supported anymore in any fashion, no maps, no op system or anything.

FineDrive 400's were manufactured by Navman, but are not supported anymore in any fashion, no updated maps, no op system or anything. If doing a master reset doesn't fix it, you may be forced to get another 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 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.

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 [email protected] I will see if I can help.

Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver Problem


The company went bankrupt. I get a "unable to read map data error". Called for over a month, sent email after email. Finally contacted a company that fixes Finedrives and they told me the company (Fine Digital) is out of business and will not warranty the unit...ten months old at the time. The company who fixes these machines said that it would be cheaper to buy a new(different company) gps system compared to having them fix the Finedrive 400.

oops, are you holding down the home button?, that is usually the way to get to wince. if not, you will need to re-load the firmware to restore the system. you can find this in the finedigitalusa site...
