Is there a difference in reception between FM1 and FM2? Or is that just so I can have more preset stations?

I believe it is just for more radio presets, I am 95% sure about this
No difference. When a radio maufacturer designs a HU with 18 Fm presets, s/he doesn't want to have eighteen buttons on the face, one for each preset. So they usually put them in sets of six. Most people never listen to more than six channels in any one area anyway, so most people use the different blocks (FM1, FM2, etc) for different parts of the country. E.g., I sue FM1 when I am at home (in Chicago), and FM2 when I visit my parents (in Indiana).
Oh, thanks.
