anyone in the forked river, nj area that has a hummingbird that uses navionics chips. I just installed a helix 7 SI/GPS and the unit is not installing the chart data. Hummingbird wants me to try my chip in another unit to see if it works. Nearest dealer is 50 miles away.

Do you mean it doesn't read the map card?

The map data does not load to the unit. The data is read directly from the card.

all the unit indicates, for over 2 hours, is "loading data". it never actually loads any map info.

What map care do you have?

Have you updated the map card?

Have you tested the card reader with a blank card to see if you can take a screen snapshot?
