    HU from USA, will it work?

    I have been thinking of getting a new headunit for a while now. I've been looking a the single DIN Sat Nav/DVD type, the ones with the fold out screen and touch screen controls. At the moment the better ones of this sort all seem to retail at around the 1000 mark!
    Early next year I am of to Florida competing and was thinking of picking one up whilst I'm out there, but the big question is will it work in my car when I get back and will accessories bought over here work with it or will I have to get everything I want whilst I'm there?
    Sorry if this has been covered before, I have done a search but so far drawn a blank.
    Cheers All

    it will work but you will need a frequency expander if you listen to the radio.

    Thumbs up

    Cheers pal, looks like I'm gonna need a bit more spending money. I've thought about the tv tuner kits that are available for for these, will one form the states work ok or will I have to get one when I'm back home? And will a UK tv tuner work on a USA headunit?
