A map can be anything graphical. Also a white empty block of pixels 
:-) Calibrate your map using 2 known points, that might as well be 
the upper left and lower right corner of that block of white pixels. 
Make sure you have the coordinates for calibration such that you are 
in between them, both NS and EW- wise. Then check 'show trace' and 
'show current location'. You should have a 'breathing' red dot in the 
middle, where you are and you should see a blue trace around; don't 
calibrate a long distance area, e.g. only 1kmx1km.
  Maybe the white empty area could be a feature in the future, rather 
than 'no map'.
