2007 Freestyle Radio / GPS problems

Post by ArdentShepherd » Tue Nov 21, 2017 6:47 pm

Hi all, I just purchased a 2007 Freestyle Limited with the touch screen radio with nav. I have a disc for the navigation, but it's saying the GPS isn't working. Further, it isn't allowing me to set the time or the date for the radio. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Welcome, the GPS module or antenna could be bad. What happens when you try to set the time? Also the discs are keyed to the car so buying a used one off the internet isn't going to work.

When I go into the settings for the radio, it shows the GPS coordinates and it updates, but it's not communicating with the mapping software. As for the time, the controls to change it are greyed out and unusable. And the calendar doesn't work either. So I'm not sure what would cause that to happen. I'll look into the GPS module.

Is it the factory radio and if it is do you have any idea if it's the radio that the car was built with?

It is a Ford radio, but I am not sure if it is the stock radio from the vehicle. I'm seeing '07 Limiteds with and without the touch radio. I believe it is the Audiophile sound system.

Nav was an option on the Limiteds. Have you tried resetting to the default settings? Do you have the manual for it?

I did reset to default settings and it didn't unlock the clock/calendar. I have the owner's manual, but not the manual for the radio itself.
