Map Storage Error: Bad Format

My Navigator II on my 04 K1200GT displays 'Map Storage Error: Bad Format' when I turn it on. Then on one of the boot up screens it shows 'maps inaccessible'. I have tried a different card, but no go. Anyone else have this problem? Should I format the card a certain way? or do I just have a bad GPS? Is the GPS warranted for the same length of time as the bike? If so, I may be able to get it repaired under warranty as the bike still has a year left.

I think it needs to be formatted in FAT 16 and not FAT 32.

Might try it and then load the maps onto it from Mapsource.
