Setting your radio region

iPod nano can be used in many countries to receive FM radio signals. It comes with five preset
signal ranges, identified by region: The Americas, Asia, Australia, Europe, and Japan.

Select a radio region:


On the Home screen, tap Settings.


Tap Radio, and then tap Radio Regions.


Tap your region.

A check appears next to the region you select.

Region settings are determined by international radio standards, not by actual geographic region.
If you live in a country not listed in the Radio Regions menu, choose a region that best matches
the radio frequency specifications in your country.
