The DEH-P7900BT is almost identical to the DEH-P85BT sold in Europe.
is a US model and will tune most AM/FM stations in the UK/Europe. The
FM broadcast band is 87.8 to 108.0 MHz. so it will not pick up any FM
stations outside this range. Also, the tuning is in odd increments
(such as 96.1, 96.3, 96.5, etc.) so some stations with even frequencies
will be slightly distorted, depending on the power of the signal the
I found this bit of info for you but ill keep looking and let you know what i find out. Also have you tried it in europe to see if it does work or not let me know ok
Pioneer have factory set your DEH-P690UB to 0.2Mhz steps to match the American FM frequency allocations.
The fix is not casual as it requires complete disassembly of the head unit and repositioning of two surface mount resistors.
This will void any warrantee and unless you're good at microscopic soldering could also ruin the set.
I did however void my 2 year warrantee yesterday partly out of frustration and because I have the right SMT tools at work.
Now my tuner CPU thinks it's in the Austrailian/Asian model DEH-P7950UB and is also compatible with UK stations.
A previously hidden menu is also available where I can set either 0.1 or 0.05Mhz stepping for FM and 9 or 10KHz for AM BSM scanning.
The rotary control now steps in 0.05's instead of odd 0.2's on FM
Hope this helps.
That is very typical of tuners designed for the US market; US FM radio stations use only the odd numbers. In most cases, tuners made for the US cannot be adjusted for use in other countries. However, a few have an "area" control that can be switched; usually it's part of the setup menu. Check out your owner's manual, if it's available.
turn radio off, and press the "audio" botton until clock is displayed. then click it again shortly till you see "FM 100" on the display, press > (side arrow, now it should switch to "FM 50". long press on the "audio" to save and exit.
afterwards it should work fine.
