Yah sad to say but it looks like your navigation drive has failed. This is common for your vehicle and sadly is pricy to fix and if you do buy a new one it has to be installed and programmed by a dealer. But if you get a used one it won't have to be but you could then run into the same issue agian. Good luck hope this helps point you in the right direction.
