[56] - Radio (Analog)

Important Note: If you have recoded 17-Instruments from USA to Europe, this changes the way the Radio operates. Note that Europe uses different specs for their radio compared to North America.

  • FM:
    • FM frequencies in Europe are spaced .1MHz apart, compared to .2MHz in North America. This causes no problems in using a Nav Plus in North America, it just means you can tune into some frequencies (such as 92.2) which don't exist here. Since it can tune into all the North American FM frequencies that do exist, it works fine.
  • AM:
    • AM frequencies in Europe are spaced 9kHz apart, compared to 10kHz in North America. Europe also does not have AM Stereo, so the Nav Plus does not support it. This DOES cause a problem. It means you can only get "close" to some stations when trying to tune them in. It may sound a bit like an AM tuner when you turn the knob just off station, but if you are an AM audiophile, this may be an issue for you. If there is a particular AM station you like to listen to, you can calculate if the Nav Plus will get close in frequency. Simply start at 531kHz, then add 9 kHz until you get close. For example, if you have a favorite station at 660Khz, the closest you can get is 657kHz. The most a station will be out by is 4kHz.
