The simple answer is that you can't. The system only allows upgrades and will not allow reversion to earlier software. I know that this has caught out some owners who have borrowed updated mapping discs to try them out and then found that they're effectively committed to buying their own set.
In part it's to ensure that the user always benefits from the latest mapping, but it's also reasonable to suspect that it's a revenue protection measure to prevent a market being established in the supply of obsolete or copied mapping software.
Sorry, but your only fix is to either buy a standalone GPS device which will usually be cheaper and more capable than Honda's own or to continue to use the latest maps on your Honda.
