RNS 850 replacement. What should I replace? (head, hdd, anything else?)

So I have USA 2011 year model here in EU. Obviously it has USA maps and 0.5 radio frequency steps.

I would like to buy a second hand unit from EU car (there are options in my country after crashes etc).

But I am not su what to replace and will it work.

1. Should I replace the LCD unit or the hdd in the glove box or both? Anything else?

2. Is some flashing or programming needed after hardware replacement? Will it work right away?

3. Is multimedia system somehow tied to the car (serial numbers, vin numbers etc)?

4. Will I be able to upgrade the EU unit normally without any hassle?
