The same thing happened to me. It turns out the USB to serial adapter had issues. Anyway to fix try this. Hold the NAV + Menu and press the power button. Your Sportrak should start up in software upload mode. You can then use the Magup program in expert mode to bring your GPS to life. I had to find a computer with a serial port to fix mine.

The block taht was in the power line of older GPS devices was for traffic only, NOT gps siginal. modern Garmin units have the traffic portion built into the Case of the head unit. GPS reciever is ALWAYS in the case of the head unit.
You must go to the original manufactures web site and in their support section type the Mod. Number of your Computer or motherboard. When you get to Option for that hardware, slelect the udated BIOS version. Caution...do not stop or tuen off the computer when udating BIOS as any interruption will clear the memory and you will never access the hardware ever again. If you are technical savy, do not try this venture.

You deleted your previous maps, therefore there are no maps on the unit. Try reloading the maps again and this time let it continue all the way to the end. It will take a couple of hours depending on loading all maps or only certain states.
