I don't think so , maybe ask www.navrepair.com , or better yet post your questions here .

No, an update won't change it and you will most likely not be able to convert the radio to USA maps service. CustomTronix (in Holland?) does convert US/North America RA4's to EU but I doubt they get any requests to go the other way. NavRepair may be able to help you, might even exchange it for a fee but I wouldn't count on it.
That is why there is a list of known RA4 VP4-NA PN's linked in the conversion thread see "Here" link...

Parts Required For MOD:

01. 8.4 Uconnect Radio (VP3/RA3 - Non-Nav) or (VP4/RA4 - Nav)
** For Compatible RA4 Radios see here. **Check car-part.com, Schram, ebay, etc.
I will add that Canadian RA4's (VP4-CA) still have US maps and are in English. They have been the only other versions shown to work decent (no apps or cellular modem). Also linked in the RA4 FW & Info thread

I'm sorry to say this but I suggest you try to return the radio (if you can), and confirm any future purchases by getting a picture of the pn label on the back beforehand and verify it against the list in the RA4 thread linked above.

I bet customtronix can do it. But I don't know for sure

Did you ever get this radio changed to US Maps Sir ?
Or
Was you able to return it and get a NA Radio ?

Sorry if you've answered this elsewhere , I'm just looking at old threads I'm subscribed to .

I returned it to the seller and purchased an NA RA4 which worked wonderfully until I updated the software and lost the navigation icon essentially turning it into an RA3
