ive seen something very similar to this(very rarely though), if not exactly. I do not think its specific to the freedom skin. Not sure what causes it, when it does happen. Do you hear a ding when u click the map area? Cant remember if i did or not. But basically you have to exit out and come back in. Its like there is a message that has focus and wont let you click outside, except there is no message box
Does this happen to you all the time? Ive only seen it happen a few time i can remember and never while in the car.
