A tad bit quirky

Donald, Crutchfield
24 December 2014
  • Summary: The unit is a great concept the application is a bit behind, ancient android os bogs down some times, the rca outputs cannot be summed (using a dsp ) the overall look of the unit is stellar. A motorized face plate would have been clutch as it aits at an odd angle and collects gobs of glare.
  • Pros: Clean style, usb galour
  • Cons: Can be slow doesnt hold settinga sometimes, like shuffle on the ipod, no letter search function in the ipod

Was hoping for more

Doug, Crutchfield
27 November 2014
  • Summary: If you use this just as it comes out of the box I would say it is "ok". I found that it didn't play well with the steering wheel control in my F-250 using the AWSC-1 adapter. Sometimes they would work and some times they wouldn't. Just using it stock as a stereo was ok.
  • Pros: Looks cool. Will run some Android apps natively. Wifi capability.
  • Cons: Old Android OS that Parrot hasn't kept up to date. Lack of physical volume / track controls.

Falls short, not mature yet.

  • Summary: My biggest gripe, and a fatal flaw IMO is there are no dedicated volume controls; you must be in the media player app to turn the volume up and down. So if you're in maps, you have to switch back to the media player to change the volume, and then back to the maps app to continue.
  • Pros: Looks good in the dash. I like the swipe forward/back for next/previous track. Runs android (old version, gingerbread I think) so one could hack it and potentially make it better. The iPod display screen is nice to look at but you can't change the background. Offline map data is nice, it doesn't ...
  • Cons: No hard volume controls. Way too many software glitches. Bad navigation app. The apps are mostly disconnected from each other (they don't integrate.) Rear camera app takes too long to load. Voice commands don't do enough - you can only play music or call a contact. The software feels underdevelop...

NIce unit

PaulW, Crutchfield
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Easy unit to install. Spent most in the installation running wire to the backup camera and to the handbrake. Needed to change the wiring connectors at the headunit. After that,all went well. Spent time trying to configure the unit. Comes with some documentation, but not a lot of detail.
  • Pros: Nice fit and finish. Mostly easy install with a few minor issues.
  • Cons: Limited to Parrot's app store if you do not root the device

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!!!

Francisco N. Rios, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this hoping it would be a good product cause of it's features and it must be the best radio cause look at the price. I remember reading some of the bad reviews but I choose to roll the dice and take the chance with it and now I'm paying for it.

Works surprisingly well

Lally, Crutchfield
27 June 2014
  • Summary: Works exactly as you'd expect. It's a landscape-mode android tablet running an ancient Android. Works well as a stereo, works great for bluetooth (especially with an android phone running something modern). GPS works well for positioning.
  • Pros: Great bluetooth work, easy install, lots of USB ports! Simple face can't really clash with any car interior. Really makes you want to hack your car in a few ways!
  • Cons: The mic needs to be shoved in pretty good before it works. Ancient version of Android No Play Store support No Google Maps support Really makes you want to hack your car in a few ways!

I wanted to wait before posting my review...

Cristino R., Crutchfield
19 June 2014
  • Summary: ...because I read quite a few reports of people complaining about bad radio reception. Most new cars with tiny antennae or 'shark fins' have a signal amplifier in the base of the antenna.
  • Pros: Self Contained Call quality Customizable with little effort Capacitive touch screen
  • Cons: Sometimes screen reflects too much light

1 Month Later - Still Love It!

gr8matt, Crutchfield
4 June 2014
  • Summary: It has been almost a month since I installed the Parrot Asteroid Smart and I would purchase it again without hesitation. I was very concerned with the unit being a couple years old (ancient as far as Android products go) and that it would be laggy and not very "smart".

Don't buy Worst GPS ever

Ahmed, Crutchfield
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this unit for my E39. The software is unstable, very bad customer service, the GPS is the worst ever and I had to purchase a Garmin unit. I won't every think about Parrot products again.
