Re: Sony Car radio cd bt5000 with US steping !!!!

I don't believe this is a user adjustable setting (at least it's not documented). Chances are, it is set within the firmware of the unit itself. Versions of this deck sold in Europe probably have a different version of firmware, allowing 0.1MHz FM increments. You might be able to talk to the European arm of Sony's support and ask them about updating the firmware to the latest European version. Keep in mind, putting EU firmware on a deck that was supposed to be used in the US could cause problems.

Sony CDX-SW200 AM/FM/CD unit

I'm not completely certain about yours, but on most Sony decks you can get to a manual tuning mode by pressing and holding the seek buttons. In other words, if you press and release the tuning button, it will automatically jump to the next channel. If you press and hold the button for a second, it should beep and possibly start flashing an "M" on the screen. After that, it should stop scanning when you release the button, without jumping to the next station.
