Mine pulled the same act not too long after I got it, so it was under warranty. I sent it back to Thales Navigation, and they fixed it for free. It had "died" while I was acknowledging a "LOW BATTERY" alarm. I've now had mine for at least two years, and no recurrence of such a serious brain cramp. That was pretty annoyin' when it happened.

Follow these steps to fix the “UNIT CURRENTLY CONTAINS NO MAP! INITIATING MAP” ERROR.
Step 1: Download the firmware update for your Sportrak model from:
Magellan GPS. Extract the zip file to your desktop.
Step 2: Download the base map file, NA_B101.IMG. This one is hard to find but you might look
on the following yahoo group page for the file: m330 : The Map 330 Club . Look in their FILES folder for the file called, NA_B101.zip. You may have to join this group to gain access to this folder. Download the file and extract it to your desktop.
Step 3: Now that you have the files necessary to fix your unit, follow these step exactly to upload the base map file.
