I suspect it is the memory card but I have no way of determining this.
It has the blue chart card but I do not have the blue chart card usb reader. It is a discontinued unit and the previous owner never had one either.
I would hate to have to replace the whole thing if it is only a software issue.
Any thoughts on this?

The garmin data card programmer is still sold by Garmin:

Check also that the Blue Chart card is actually selected. It could just be reading a base map installed in the unit.
