What is the error code? Are you having a software issue or is it physical problem with the unit?
If you need the software updated you can probably get it done. Sounds like that is not the issue.
The Freeride will work, but it's not ideal. I'd recommend getting a new beacon. Hell if you got a condo in Jackson, I got a feeling you can probably make the excuse you need to get a new beacon. The DSP is still top notch. The Ortovox 3+ is pretty nice. It carries better and the pinpoint function is one of the best out there. The new Tracker2 is pretty good too. It has a fast processor like the DSP. Those are the three I would be looking at.
