Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

First thing to make sure of is that the unit is getting the full 12V to the plug, not just in the boat fuse box. Do this with a multimeter. If you have a map card installed, remove it and see it the unit will fully boot up. It is will, update the map card, it is corrupted. If neither if these will work, doing a soft reset on the unit may be the next step. Let me know if that is needed and I can tell you how to do it.
