- Most important how can I convert my charging inlet to support local chargers and where can I buy a "Swedish" charger that will work

- Does my radio work here or what do I need to do....
Very grateful for all replies/help!
Sorry about the late response.
YOu can change the nav data yourself, which would require buying a new FSC code and downloading the data (huge files). Search the installation procedure, but it's fairly simple.
No idea on the connected drive...not sure the SIM card is compatible or that the frequencies used are the same. THere are some that are common across the world, but not positive.
It probably won't be cheap, but as far as I'm aware, the actual protocol on charging is the same, so you would need the new cable/port installed. No idea on how hard that would be.
The speed limit data is embedded in the nav data, and augmented by the camera, but may not be looking for the sign shape in Europe verses those in the USA. Probably will work with new nav data for your area once it has that local data installed.
FM radio frequency assignments use a different spacing in Europe than the USA. That can be changed by coding. Some radio frequency channels will align, but the steps between them are different, and there may not be a station on those that do.
I don't think that most of the EVSEs are frequency dependent (50/60Hz), so a US one, at least in your home, probably could be installed but obviously wouldn't help if you needed to charge away from home.
You might be able to make a plug conversion cable with a US style plug on one end, and a Euro style socket on on the other.
