Summary: I installed this (with the help of my brother) a couple of weeks ago and really love it. The sound quality on my end is fantastic and the microphone picks up my voice quite clearly. The installation was fairly simple, mainly because I also got a wiring harness. The only complication with the installation was knowing which mute wire to attach to but I got lucky on the first try. Absolutely no problem connecting my phone to the system. There are a few irritants with it.
Pros: Great sound quality on my end, fairly easy installation, easy to use
Cons: Echo on other end, menu system not that great.
Summary: The device works pretty much as advertised. It has a hard time with my Verizon Blackberry Curve, For instance it pairs ok once, but then forgets it was paired the next time the car turns on Also, the sound quality is a little wonky on the recievers end and staticy inside the car. However my old Tmobile flip phone connects flawlessly every time and sounds crystal clear...
Summary: The hardest part of this installation is the removal of the radio and that wasn't hard with the instructions supplied by Crutchfield. The control box is kinda big and in some installations it might be a challenge to hide but it's not fussy and zip ties are your friends. I removed the pillar trim to hide the mike wire and make a sanitary installation; it looks good. After that, it's plug and play if you have the optional wiring harness.
Summary: Great product for the money! Crutchfield Tech Support is the best. Had issue with the first Parrot sent and they sent a new one. New one works perfect, I would get the harness as well from Crutchfield. It makes it much easier to install.
Summary: This thing is really cool, if you don't want to change the head unit in your car. I recently bought a new/used car and really liked the stock radio so I ordered the Parrot. Good price, fast shipping, etc., however, it didn't work with my phone. I had it professionally installed, so no issue there. Turns out my android phone isn't compatible.
Summary: Overall, does the trick in a nice way. A couple of odd instances of dropping the BT connection initially (iPhone 4S, iOS 6), but they could be limited to this unit (Parrot tech support was very quick to respond via their online form). Would be a 5-star rating otherwise. Hardest part of installation is deciding where to locate the mic and controls, along with running the cables for each, but that's to be expected. Simple to use.
Pros: Nice, small control unit. Simple to set up and use.
Cons: A couple of BT connection drops, but that could be just this particular unit.
Summary: The product itself is just about the best car kit for the price. It would've recieved a 5 if the instructions were a little better. The adding of contacts is a little hard to understand. One time I entered my daughters info and the unit asked for the cell number, home number, work number,etc. The next and subsequent contacts didn't ask for any info at all. Better instructions would have been a big help. The unit installed easily.
