Hi Tuck, my name is Pete.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with the Garmin Echomap.

Try connecting the device to a computer to check if the map files are still on it.

If they are missing or corrupted, they will need to be reinstalled, either from a previously created backup of the files, or by returning the unit to Garmin.

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
Otherwise please reply back if you need further assistance.
