Excerpt: I purchased this for a car which did not have any connectivity. Previously, I had the MKi9200 in another vehicle and decided to go with this one as the screen on the 9200 was too bright at night (even at the dimmest setting).
Summary: I bought the Parrot MKi9100 for my wife's 2008 Honda Odyssey. It is hands down the best Bluetooth device we've used. Installation wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. Once the dash was apart it was plug and play with the wiring harness (also ordered through Crutchfield).
Pros: Call clarity. Easy to use. Can control and charge an iPod.
Summary: I have wanted to put a Bluetooth system in my 2005 Subaru outback for 5 years and have generally been frustrate with my options. To put an entirely new stereo in was so expensive it hardly seemed worth it. But then the folks at Crutchfield told me about this and I can't be happier!
Summary: This system does exactly what I need - provides great Bluetooth functionality. I have always installed aftermarket stereos in my vehicles and while all have provided great audio, some of the Bluetooth functionality has been marginal.
Pros: Excellent Bluetooth performance Good audio from iPod / MP3 USB (for a 20W/ch RMS amp) Intuitive user interface - controls logical and easy to use The "open-box" item was indistinguishable from a new boxed product except for some Crutchfield tape on the box. Item was pristine and functions flawles...
Summary: Fit perfectly, quality manufacture, directions were rubbish but you shouldn't really attempt install if you need detailed instruction so not all that important - YouTube vids give better instruction for prepping the car.
Pros: Well thought out, fabricated & all parts included.
Summary: The MKi9000 has proven to be better than advertised. I installed this myself in a 2007 Honda Accord. It was more fun to install this myself. The install directions from Parrot are limited, Crutchfield sent a install guide specific to my vehicle which made the process much easier.
Pros: Flexible set up and use options The sound through the Parrot is surprisingly good - Better than the factory radio
Cons: The remote installed on the steering wheel can be a little quirky. It leads To accidental recall of Your last call. The voice command is a little hard to understand.
Summary: very nice item. There is no dash kit for my american style Subaru Legacy 2005. I was looking for a way to add bluetooth to my car and be able to play my iphone through my speakers. this little guy took me (very inexperienced) about 1.5 hrs to install and it works and sounds great!
Pros: easy to use, bluetooth calling, very fast connection to phone each time i enter car
Cons: sometimes i hit the control switches when im turning on short notice, changing the song or dropping the call.
Summary: The Parrot MKi9100 is everything it was stated to be. Once power up, it paired with my iPhone5 immediately. Controls are easy to operate and move thru menus are easy too. System works as advertised.
Pros: Easy install, easy operation once paired to iPhone5.
Summary: I decided to purchase the Parrot MKi9100 for our Mazda 6 from Crutchfield because of the great help I got on the phone before I purchased. When I called to ask some questions about DIY installation the reps on the phone were very knowledgeable and gave not even a hint of pressure to buy from...
