Summary: I see people complaining. First off research rooting your unit. And be warned if you root your Parrot Android you can be ticketed by the POPO for distracted driving. There is a reason Parrot put limitations on apps, so dumb or reckless people can live to see another day. Then you can have the Play Store and almost any app for Ginger Bread OS. The cons are a older OS and some apps won't be in landscape mode.
Summary: I Bought this at the east york store and the guys their were a great help. The unit is supper intuitive and once you get comfortable with it, it is amazing. Since it's android 2.3 you can root it if you want. for the GPS download an app called Sygic! everything is super easy to use and I love how the radio scans the entire freq band and shows the name of each station. changing songs or even changing the volume is fun, simply use the touch screen for everything!
Summary: I bought this to replace an Alpine IVE-W530. The Alpine sounded good but had a clunky interface and was very slow in communicating with my iPod to the point where it wasn't practical. The Smart came with version 2.0 software and is now up to 2.1.1. The upgrade made a huge difference in the overall stability and functionality of the unit. The phone, GPS, and voice recognition performance are all excellent. The interface with the iPod is instant.
Summary: Bought this deck about a month ago an haven't been disappointed. Your not going to use all the features in this deck but to have them is great. What I like about this deck the most is the fact that you have many different ways to play your music whether it be Bluetooth, Sd card, or through a usb device. Theres no cd drive built into the deck an the gps is pretty standard but thats the only negatives I see in this device.
Summary: At first use it was a great unit with promising features. However, after using it without steering wheel controls it was disappointing. Also, the glare made the screen almost unreadable. Also, the GPS had no traffic support. I was forced to upgrade (glad I did) to the Kenwood model. Believe me, the extra money was worth it.
Excerpt: Its not comman to find a early adopter product like this to be polished and reliable, this product is just that. becasuse this is android based you have have a good amount of asteroid specific apps that are really useful like tunin radio and spotify. but tiny bit of tinkering you have the ability to load apps from the whole catalogue from android market place.
Summary: Hallo habe dieses Radio jetzt seit 4 Tagen, alles eingestellt Unika Lenkradfernbedienung funktioniert sehr gut mit meinem Toyota Avensis. Playstore auch installiert, weitere Android Apps funktionieren auch sogar DVB-T Freisprechen super Sprachbefehle werden alle reibungslos ausgeführt.
Summary: Voraus, ich hab das Teil nicht über Amazon bezogen, lediglich die Idee stammte von hier Das erste Gerät im November 2013 gekauft. Nach dem Einbau stellte ich fest, dass der GPS Dongle nicht funktionierte. Eine Anfrage beim Parrot Service blieb erst mal ohne Antwort. Google ergab, dass die Geräte fehlerhaft ausgeliefert worden sind, Seitens Parrot aber kein Wank beim Support. Nach drei wöchigem Hin und Her wurde mir das Gerät vom Importeur ersetzt.
