Default Passport 2 US - change firmware to INT'L?

Hello,

I own a Passport 2 that I have bought from the US.
I now live in Europe (more specifically, Bucharest - Romania) and I use this detector here.
I have two problems:
1. I'm trying to update the firmware of the device (using a Macbook Pro) and I'm only getting error messages.
2. I'd like to know if I can change the firmware / defender camera subscription to Europe -> INT'L edition of the device.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Nope, that doesn't work. US versions will only accept US firmware and US databases. US versions can't be changed to international versions and international versions can't be changed to US versions.

Yup. Sell the USA model and buy an international version. The reason is there are also some minor hardware changes as well as software for international threats.
