    Are you asking about HD (high definition) radio broadcasts? I think the roll-out for that technology started in 2009, so the 2008 would have just missed it. Come to think of it, my 2011 doesn't have HD radio. At least I don't think it does.

    Frequency offsets are a regional thing determined by international agreements. There isn't an adjustable setting in the radio to change the offset. A Prius sold in the Middle Eastern market, or is it Southwest Asia, would have a properly configured radio with the even numbered offsets. Maybe you could acquire a suitable replacement with the proper configuration locally.
