Any advise would be helpful.
Not a problem! Did you grounded the "brake wire" from the unit instead of connecting it to the actual brake wire in the car? It has nothing to do with the region restriction, but if this wire was connected to the hand brake, it will interfere with video viewing. You need to ground this wire, just be safe and don't view videos while driving!

Since it is giving that message, I'm pretty sure this wire was not grounded or connected at all. Also, where was the Wifi antenna located? What I did was to used its magnet and located it like most others behind the glove box, there was a metal piece left of the fuses and works fine for me. Wifi antenna location is important to make a good connection.
