  2. Thanks for the info, Buba. Map upgrades only once per year (or even fewer) is fairly standard for most GPS manufacturers…. unfortunately.

  3. i purchased fine drive 400 about a month a go.
    the maps seemed to be out of date by a lot.
    i e-mailed them at their tech support address and i got a e-mail returned within 10 minutes i was so surprised.

    they said staples are just selling the models with old maps and that if i send the unit to them they’d update my map at no cost.

    now im waiting to get my unit back with the latest mapupdate(according to them)

  4. I bought the FineDrive 400 dez/06. I did e-mailed them something about updating my map and they returned my e-mail in one day. But the scene has been changed. Since april I am having problem and my gps, that start giving a error mensage and lock it. I already have try to contact them, sending them, so far 4 e-mail about the problem and until this moment I have not been contacted. Now I am thinking if the FineDrive it is a dependable brand?
