Default Lowrance Global Map 5000c

I just bought the Lowrance GPS, had it flush mounted in my new HS 2800 wa, placed the Navonics Gold in the machine and got nothing!!!
The machine doesn't recognize the chip. We took the chip and placed it in my friends machine (same) and the chip works great. Now I know it's the machine.
Lowrance says I might have an old version of hardware on the GPS (I just purchased it in February) or I might have to send the unit back.
I can't believe they don't test these things before sending them out. It's not like we're buying a pack of chewing gum or something. So if I do have to send it back, I first have to rip it out of the new boat.

Anyone with any ideas as to what else it could be before I start ripping???
