Summary: I installed this is my 2005 Jaguar S-Type with a speciality adapter harness from quickharness.com and it was a breeze to install and works flawlessly. I would highly reccomend this for anyone that has a vehicle where replacing the deck is just not feasible.
Summary: My experience was exactly the same as the other user. Because it takes a while to detect the problem - normally have to live through a season or two it puts you over your 1 year warranty. The guy at customer support told me they had heard of this problem before and since I was out of warranty there was nothing they would do to help me. He then ended it by saying "Are there any other questions I can help you with?
Pros: *Easy install especially with third party pre-built harness. *Firmware updates were often to maintain compatibility *Customizable wallpaper
Cons: * does not operate in cold weather and is useless for short commutes because of this. * horrid customer support
Summary: Have a 2010 Honda Civic, replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket while doable would have been a long reach to the controls and I have long arms. The Parrot provided a great way to connect my Iphone and use it easily. I bought the installation as the installation process looked more complicated than I wanted to try. Abe at Crutchfield was really helpful.
Pros: Nice way to add Bluetooth to your car stereo.
Cons: Lots of menu options to explore, somewhat intuitive, but not well documented.
Summary: I first learned about Parrot via Popular Mechanics about a little over a year ago. I drive alot for my job, service work, and need to be able to connect to my customers on the go without endangering myself or other drivers. Not to mention, some places, it's illegal to talk on cell phones while driving. I purchased the MKi9200 kit along with the factory wiring harness for my 2007 Chevrolet Uplander.
Pros: Great call clarity, noise suppression works. Boom microphone is great! Voice recognition works great with phone book. Streams music great! With a factory radio no sound problems as with a higher end system.
Cons: Wireless controller flimsy. Voice recogniition works only with phone book names. You cannot say "call XXX-XXX-1234" it doesn't recognize numbers only phone book names. Bluetooth sometimes doesn't sync music and you must use menu to recognize bluetooth for music.
Summary: This is the worst hands free, bluetooth, electronic product for your car. I got it as a gift from my wife for Christmas and I was provided the name of an "authorized" installer who gouged me for $290.00 to install this already overpriced piece of junk, and I am still not sure they installed it correctly. Everyone that calls me complains that they can't hear me so I end up dangerously juggling my phone or pulling over to deactivate the system.
Cons: Locks up, poor reception and sound quality, controls fuction half the time, no users manual of instructions.
