Hi,
is there a way to install the North American head unit firmware on a head unit running the European version?
Many features and settings are disabled in the European version and can't even be enabled via HDS.

Afaik it's possible to update the firmware via USB stick with a verified update file 🤔
Do Civics from NA and Europe even have different firmware versions? Or is it just a region setting?

The European head unit is made by Mitsubishi. There is no software update available.
I seem to recall the USA United is made by Panasonic. So you can't use the US software in the European head unit, Even if you could, why would you want to?

You'd have better luck (but it won't be easy) replacing the entire head unit with a US version.
