Update idea

If this is possible with just a firmware update

include adding AM radio, lot's of sport games are on AM radio, news talk is mostly on AM radio,

along with lots of music stations

Not possible without new hardware. AM tuners are different from FM tuners.

music stations?Smiley Surprised

I'll grant you, sports and news talk is on AM, but I highly doubt you'll see it in a Fuze, and I think it would take more than just firmware to do it. And please tell me you wouldn't listen to music on AM.....it would sound dreadful!!!! Smiley Wink

Sorry to break your heart... This is impossible. There is actually a hardware issue. This is that there is no AM hardware. Marvin AM is actually the preferred band for Jazz, Swing, and some early blues, as well as 75% of music still played off of Vinyl. It is good for polka too.
