New Screen Fitted, Sat Nav Problems!

I had a new screen fitted today, paid by insurance and it took them three tries to get the right screen so a lot of palaver! As I left I was checking everything was working and ok radio fine, auto wipers worked, sat nav took instructions but the maps didn't show, tried factory reset but no change, all other screen indications are operating for radio, phone, stereo, just no maps although I get the verbal instructions directing me.
 
When on the maps screen there are a series of lines in the top of the screen as if screens have been compressed to that area, try display changes and it shows the optional screens but when selected they are black with no map.
 
Any ideas?

I replaced the battery on my wife’s swift sport and had a similar problem with the sat nav in that.   It was a standard garmin system and I thought **** what have I done.....after a couple of hours of driving, the maps appeared, no changes to settings etc, maybe just needed to find a full gps signal before it would display correctly.
 
Your problem may be the same if the battery has been disconnected.   Worth telling the fitters that it’s not working and seeing if it rights itself in a similar way.   If not, at least you made them aware and take it forward from there....

A late update on this but it may prove of use for someone, the next day I called the company involved and their bloke called at my place, I got the car out of the garage set the nav to take me to an address a few streets away and it was AOK! Drove round to the other address, set to my address and AOK again! The fitter was pleased as he thought they may have cut a wire!
