Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) The FULL Model Number of the device you are working with? If you can find and send the Serial Number back, that would be even better.
2) The AGE of the device?
3) What was the status of the device BEFORE the download of the newest maps were attempted?

Thanks
