Default Garmin Echomap 70 help

First, I don't know a damn thing about the unit. I turn it on and it shows a map. I reference it here and there. Having qualified myself...

Today I deleted the current track and after that my navigation map was all yellow. Just the boat icon in the middle with a track but no map overlay. It was showing my position and heading. So I played around with it, a bad idea. Now the screen is blank, still yellow, except for a 002 in the middle, no position or heading. Somewhere along the way I did reset to factory but didn't delete user settings.

Also, I see that my vhf is no longer showing position (from Garmin unit).

Maybe someone can throw me a few ideas on where to start? Thanks a lot.
