Very Happy with the Asteroid

MikeO, Crutchfield
6 August 2013
  • Summary: Love this little unit......iGo was a bit frustrating, but solved that by buying/installing TomTom USA......Does everything i want it to do, music through iPod and tuner, nav using TomTom and BlueTooth telephony......not to mention you can do a lot more with the network connectivity, the SD card and USB inputs....
  • Pros: Like the pretty easy interface and like i said does exactly what i need done for my uses. Love the non-tethered Navigation capability and the iPod interface....Bluetooth works well and clear.
  • Cons: Only had two small issues, had a couple of calls dropped for no reason and the USB through the add'l extension cord doesn't allow you to load images. I would assume it is only for USB music......

Wonderful stereo!

Wil A, Crutchfield
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I absolutely love this stereo. I was a little worried after reading about all the bugs, but I've actually encountered very few. The stereo is one of the fastest responding Android devices I've seen. It's slick, it's beautiful. I would definitely recommend the Parrot Asteroid Smart!
  • Pros: fast, pretty, Android, works offline, convenient
  • Cons: slow to start, can't upgrade SD card without losing iGo maps.

Great Radio for a Great Price

Cameron, Crutchfield
8 July 2013
  • Summary: Love the radio! Does everything I wanted it to do, and has a very user-friendly interface. It is very responsive, has easy to navigate windows, and boots up fairly quickly. Cons: Needs more Apps; voice search for a specific song (it only allows by Artist or Album); and needs Pandora!
  • Pros: Very user-friendly interface, very responsive, clear bluetooth sync (for phone, music/audio, and data connection), connects to my iPod within the first 10 seconds of boot up, very good voice recognition, decent audio effects, haven't tried the VLC app yet, but the Waze app is unbelievable!
  • Cons: Needs more apps (not much of a selection) like Pandora, and the free version of Spotify. Needs voice recognition by song name (only allows by Artist or by Album). Would be cool if it could read texts to you, or you could at least send texts. Doesn't start audio from the same spot in the song if the radio/car is turned off mid-song

Cool system

Will, Crutchfield
6 April 2013
  • Summary: This is basically a tablet for your car. It comes preloaded with a number of apps including iGo Navigation, which I happen to like better than Garmin. Setup was easy. I paired my iPhone in just a few seconds and I was able to make calls right from my phone's contact list on the Asteroid. Voice recognition does fairly well considering. Music sync'd and I was listening to songs on my phone while it was still in my belt holster.
  • Pros: -- Seems pretty configurable. As long as the app market continues to produce this can be a trendsetter for the market. -- Fast bootup -- Small/compact design -- Lots of inputs/outputs -- Fast screen response -- Integration with Apple i{devices} was simple -- Simple/easy to use while driving
  • Cons: -- Screen is shiny/highly reflective. In certain sunny conditions, it is hard to see -- No HD radio -- Concern about app development/availability -- Parrot support never responded to my online ticket, but Crutchfield was able to contact them. I shoul state they have a decent forum with folks willing to help.

Parrot Asteroid Smart

t3dward, Crutchfield
24 March 2013
  • Summary: Unit is pretty much what you see on paper, screen is bright, UI is easy to use, works great with ipod and iphone. The 4 USB ports is great, possibly the best feature of the unit. I was able to stash an old ipod in my glovebox to have my entire library of music, and keep the ipod charged all out of sight. Wifi works well, bluetooth also works well, and having a browser on the dashboard is kinda cool, since the screen is certainly larger than my phone.
  • Pros: Great screen, well designed UI, wifi capable, tons of USB space
  • Cons: Volume controls are hard to access, boot up time is slow

Just what I was looking for

BProctor, Crutchfield
3 March 2013
  • Summary: This has to be the coolest system I have installed. I like having all the apps I used for my car through the phone now in the dash. I installed this into my 2014 Ford Focus SE without any issues other that the Unika. I haven't rooted this thing yet and as long as the apps I want can be side loaded without root I probably won't bother.
  • Pros: Great looking display at half the cost of most other units I was looking at.
  • Cons: Radio would shut down when trying to us with Ford Sync. This isn't much of an issue for me so I haven't looked to see if there was anything to do in order to resolve. I just unpaired my phone from Sync and it is no longer an issue.
