Hi

Do you know will the Visteon radio 9/10 from US Smart 451 fit the EU Smart 451. Are they the same, do they have the same frequencies?

Thanks

I'm sure that one of our European owners will chime it to verify this or debunk this, but I'm pretty sure that the channel spacing is different over there than here. You might be able to use a European radio here, but I think you will lose channels if you use a US radio there.
EU radios have .250 channel spacing. US radios have .500.

The radios are physically interchangeable but the US radios, in addition to the frequency problem, lack some of the features found on the EU version. We don't get the RDS feature here, for instance. :)
