AM Radio in Europe

I'm looking for the tweak to set an X3 radio to pick up the AM band properly in Europe. I think there is some combination of buttons to press in order to access this feature.

Thanks

Maping Capacity

How great of an area can you load into the unit. For example, if you were going to tour several states on a trip can they all be loaded at once? Is the unit limited to the 128mb chip?
