Conclusion: The Parrot MKi9200 will not work well with the Lockpick GMX550 even after contacting Lockpick about it (they said to get a Parrot but did not say which one). Trust me, don't waist your money If you want this as a combo with the GMX550. It Looks good and I love the features. Shame it did not work well with what I have.
Summary: Installation with the custom wiring harness was a breeze, setup was also clear and easy. Screen is excellent. Unit worked fabulously well for about 18 months, then began to lock up, auto power down, fail to power up, etc. Link-up to my Droid X phone began to throw the unit into a tailspin. Software updates made the problems worse. Ultimately had to replace the unit in less than two years.
Pros: When it works, it's fabulous.
Cons: Died in less than two years. Parrot didn't stand behind the unit
Conclusion: Fair audio quality no matter where the mic is positioned. Can't compete with the better Bluetooth headpieces. Fairly buggy with iPhone. For example, we have to plug in our phones and then unplug and replug to get the audio to work. The amplifier should be stronger. Oh highways it's barely enough. This is the best of the worst. In otherwords, there aren't any other better integrated options but this is only average at best.
All the stuff you want...and the problems that you don't

Summary: If you're intuitive, you can figure out the install. As for the device executing its features, it falls pretty flat. It has real issues when you have two paired devices in the vehicle at the same time. It cannot figure out which to make priority and when. Once you finally get the streaming music feature to work, it has real issues doing anything from another phone.
Pros: screen is clear, if small. takes up little room on the outside but a lot of room inside your dash. voice clarity is solid while blocking out background noise.
Cons: install instructions were pathetic (even if they aren't really needed), execution of each feature is pretty weak, if you lose the remote you lose ALL functionality (no buttons on screen or other way to control), little individual setup options (set up is very basic and doesn't explain what its own features mean/do).
Non-intuitive interface, marginal instructions, partially DOA

Summary: The unit does not acknowledge my iPod when I connect it. The AUX jack is similarly non-function out of the box. When I play music from a USB device, it seems to lock on to it. I usually give up on trying to use a different function again until I can power cycle it by turning off the car.
Pros: The hands-free phone feature works well enough.
Cons: The microphone makes the driver sound like under water. The iPod connector and AUX jack never worked.
Summary: I use this product in my car, and it is suppose to be compatible with the IPhone 3G, and the IPod. Occasionally I will get a message on the Parrot screen telling me that it is not compatible with the IPhone or Ipod? When the Parrot works it is wonderful, and when it doesn't work it is awful! The Parrot is easily confused! I am very disappointed with the Parrot MKI9200! What to do?
Summary: About a 6 weeks ago I bought this product as to integrate my ipod and bluetooth phone into the Bose system in my 2005 G35. Installation was more hassle than I wanted to deal with, so I had it professionally installed. Here's how I rated it:
Ipod integration: The user interface is better and more intuitive than the you can get by using the Nissan factory ipod adaptor or the i-simple products, but you sacrafice sound quality.
Summary: je recherchais un kit main libre, sur ce point il répond à ce que je recherchais ... J'ai choisi cet article parce qu'il avait des fonctions supplémentaires comme la possibilité de lire de la musique sur différents périphériques, de ce point de vue encore il y réponds mais il la de réels faiblesses sur ce point.
