Depends on the HU...some have FM tuning some have only AM tunning....you need to see if its Europe compatible...if it is, it will work in India

Just make sure that your HU will work in Europe where they use both even and odd freq. (such as 91.0) US only uses Odd freq. (98.3, 93.7 etc..) Some time back there is a thread discussing al this.

I was under the same confusion when LBM told that there is an option in Menu when you can switch over the frequencies, yes it is HU dependent feature.

That's an HU dependent feature, a lot of Alpine's feature both modes which you can change by changing the "Area" settings.

Hah! Do you expect all those dumb american ebay sellers to know this? No way!

Yes, a better idea would be, as I used to do.... Choose your product after listening, list all the queries,call/chat with Crutchfield and resolve and then proceed to ebay for buying.

What is a good site to buy HUs/Speakers/Amps from the States?
(Good = cheap yet reliable.)

Yeah Fatal even some members suggested it won't work over here as the H.U's from U.S tune in differently,complete confusion
