Question about Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver

Updated my FineDrive 400 to Aug 2006 data and now maps are gone

I updated my FineDrive 400 to Aug 2006 map data and OS (from 2005). The OS upgrade seems to have been successful, but now it can's find the maps. I put them in the root directory of the SD card filesystem. This is what's on the SD card:

map.ver
FineDigital Navigation
FineDigital Navigation/Maps
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/strabbr.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/stnl.biz
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/polygons.biz
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/linkinfo.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/mapdata1.biz
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/lsrs.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/lsr.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/poi.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/lfoidx.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/sttypes.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/mapdatat.biz
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/az.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/mapdata2.biz
FineDigital Navigation/Maps/azbc.bin
FineDigital Navigation/Software-FineDigital-Navigation.ini

map.ver contains 20060801

Am I missing anything?

Thanks,

****

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.

FineDrive 400 Map Data


its impossible to email or post online due to the size of a couple of the files. I created a new dvd with instructions and automatically loading firmware update and are selling these on ebay for basically the cost of labor and materials, fine digital used to get $150 for an upgrade dvd... if you search ebay for finedrive dvd you should see it.

How to update gps finedrive 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.

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...

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.

The map data


sure did, the site also changed its policies. I have instead started lising the upgrade DVD cheap on ebay. it has the upgrade files, map data and instructions... and its cheap. finedrive used to send you to a site that charged $150 for this upgrade... now they are gone..
