Excerpt: The £69 Parrot Minikit Chic device, which is about the same size as an Apple iPod classic , comes with a built-in clip, so it's ready to slip on to your car's sun visor. When we tried it, however, the clip felt a bit chintzy and failed to pry open very wide. We had to mash it on to our visor to ensure that it stayed in place.
Parrot MINIKIT CHIC: iPhone Bluetooth Device Review
12 March 2009
Excerpt: Parrot is a company that makes a variety of different types of in-car Bluetooth, hands-free systems. Some are integrated into the car itself, others are plug and play, like the Minikit Chic. It should be mentioned off the top that this product is intended for women users. Parrot also has the Minikit Slim, which has the same capabilities, with a different design on the front of it. The front of the Chic has a flower design on it, which I think is very tattoo-like.
Summary: If you're looking for an easy-to-install Bluetooth hands-free car kit then the Parrot Minikit is definitely worth checking out. Not only were we impressed with how loud it sounds, even with the radio on, but we also really like the audio quality during calls.
Pros: Loud audio from the speaker, Long battery life, No noticeable feedback during calls, Sun visor clip, Easy-to-access controls, Ability to pair up to five handsets
Cons: Power button could be bigger, Voice commands don't always work, Navigation knob takes some getting used to
Conclusion: Средняя цена Parrot MINIKIT+ на момент написания обзора составляет 3000 рублей. Гаджет может похвастаться неплохим набором функций, в том числе и голосовым управлением на русском языке, что неоспоримо является преимуществом нового продукта от Parrot. Parrot MINIKIT+ единственный функциональный спикерфон, поддерживающий голосовую навигацию и набор номеров на русском языке. Возможностей устройства хватает для комфортного использования в автомобиле средних габаритов.
