To allow users to help you, please explain in more detail what you actually did to update your maps. Updating maps shouldn’t affect the MMI’s ability to activate the radio ...

Ah, so youi didn't update the maps; you updated the MMI!

I haven't any experience of changing MMI regional versions but by trying to update with a Eur MMI update file, I think you've mixed up some Euro MMI files with some NAR ones. And I presume that you still have NAR maps on the MMI hard disk, as the MMI update doesn't include any map files. So I suspect mapping is 'mucked up' too.

You didn't explain what you saw when the MMI was updating but it's possible you can see what was done by using the MMI Update screen and selecting the 'Logging option' which lets you displays the update logs to see what happened.

I suspect you'll have to reset your MMI by building the MMI files from scratch, for which I hope someone else will let us know how to do it.

What does the MMI Version screen show?

@Andibora13 -- This is not so simple. The MMI main unit is hard-coded for certain North American language selections (US English, Canadian French, for example), which are not equivalent to their European counterparts (UK English, French as used in France). Conversion to HN+R_EU is possible, but you need special tools to update the EEPROM for EU language selections. Can you start the Green Engineering Menu (GEM) ? You may be able to get English text back, at least from one of the /config menus. Another reference: https://mhhauto.com/Thread-MMI-3G-PLUS-US-EU-Conversion-help
