Summary: I love Bluetooth in the car, but who had it '98? No one! This makes it easy to get great sound in any vehicle. I am able to keep my factory system, which is quite good, and add additional sources as well as hands free through my iPhone.
Pros: Sounds absolutely fantastic. Also lets me keep my CD, Tape, AM-FM totally available. Compact, fits easily by the glove compartment, and behind dash.
Summary: Great product, and easy to install using the vehicle adapters from Crutchfield. We've had it drop a connection once over a month of use, but that could've been a fluke, so we're generally pretty satisfied.
Pros: easy install
Cons: sometimes ambiguous pairing status when there are multiple phones in the car
need to find a tidy place to hide the mic & display wires, but that's inherent in any aftermarket system
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.
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).
Conclusion: I would recommend to the value conscious DIYers who wants to keep existing car audio, but want to add Bluetooth telephony and audio. You can set up in different ways, but I choose to use built-in amplifier which is less powerful than my car audio.
Summary: Just installed this and am VERY surprised by how good it works. The install was easier then expected, with the T harness from Crutchfield. I had to call Crutchfield with a couple questions about extra wires, but with their advice the install went smoothly.
Summary: The product does everything it describes and works well. Voice recognition calling is great so you never have to take your eyes off the road. The microphone is great, people have always had difficulty hearing me talk through a phone, but with this microphone there are never any issues.
Conclusion: Overall I am very pleased with the Parrot MKi9100. My only issue is the LCD display being very difficult to see in any kind of sunlight even with the brightness turned all the way up. Technically you don't need to SEE the display to use its functionality so I suppose it's not an issue.
Summary: I purchased this for my 2008 Honda Pilot. I bought the Honda-compatible adapter harness, and installation was pretty much plug-and-play once I removed the radio. Total installation took me about an hour.
The system itself does exactly what it says. Syncing my phone (Blackberry 9630) was fast & easy.
