Ok. Did a search. No one looks like they have found a solution, or it has been a while since it's been a problem.
Had to jump start the RR today. Nav now has the WSOD and the radio is muffed with no volume control.
Had my dead battery changed out this evening. Both problems persist.
Has anyone discovered the cause and fix.
I really don't care about the Nav, but I would like the radio to work properly.
Any advise or fix would be welcome.

Ok then.
Can you disconnect the Nav so the Radio will function properly.
Like I said. I don't really care about the Nav. I just want my radio/CD player to have controllable volume.
Any advise will be welcome.

You should be able to just disconnect the multiplugs at the back of the navigation computer in the trunk, which is much easier than trying to get to the back of the radio. I would try disconnecting the battery overnight and/or shorting the positive to ground with the battery disconnected for a few minutes. This will drain many of the power capacitors in the various electronic boards so the electronics can fully reset. Electronics can start up in strange states after low-voltage conditions.

Did you jump it with another vehicle? It should be difficult to damage electronics this way unless one of the alternators is shot and producing too much voltage. Maybe over-voltage destroyed your first battery. Check the voltage at the battery with the car idling and at several thousand rpm.

I'll disconnect the battery overnight and see what happens.
BTW. I did have to jump start the car yesterday to get it to the shop for new battery.
It was after the jump that I got the WSOD.
No matter what, I will probably disconnect the Nav since I don't use it.

Sorry for the late reply.
I disconnected the Nav from the back.
Put everything back in place, and starter the Range.
The radio worked perfect.
And no more WSOD.
Doesn't bother me because I never used the Nav. And I always hated having to turn it off every time I started the Range(petty. I know!).
I'd really like to install an all-in-one unit.
I've seen the ones made on this forum. I really like them.
Something to control all of the units in the center console.
Back-up camera.
Cd changer in back.
Maybe even a really good GPS.
Hands-free Blue-Tooth for phone.
I've found a really nice unit from Alpine
That is my project for next year.
