    Cool Pictures from my parrot MK6100 install

    Hi guys,

    This is linked to my thread in the styling forum (covering the map-lights and sunglasses case mod) and covers the parrot install.

    Click on the thumbnails to see the full-size images:

    The parrot MK6100 kit laid out (apologies for garish tablecloth! )
    The SOT-122 lead (off eBay), mute leads supplied unattached at ISO end
    The two looms connected and ready to install
    Chosen 'mute' wire location on the power side of the SOT-122
    Matching 'mute wire location on the power side of the SOT-122
    Parrot mute conenction close-up
    Power connections crossover close-up
    Fuse cover removed on passenger side
    glove box about to be removed (screws arrowed)
    Glove compartment (who actually keeps gloves in there?!) removed, pre-existing nokia car kit circled.
    Halfords stereo removal tools in place to remove CD70 and ashtray removed.
    Everything out!
    Parrot noise-cancelling mic
    Taping the mic wire inside the passenger-side A pillar (away from the airbag!)
    Modules all back in place, parrot control unit and wiring still out by the glove box
    Everything back to normal, phone in cradle
    MK6100 display mounted at the bottom of the A pillar, remote controls on the wheel (now moved to the door handle, as I couldn't see the right indicator, fuel guage and the higher-end of the speedo).

    I connected the red fly-lead from the SOT-122 to an existing switched live feed already sourced for the existing Nokia in-car kit. No problems apart from getting mount for display to stick to the dashboard - even 'no more nails' double-sided sticky pad struggled but eventually took.

    Legal calls and stereo streaming of MP3s from my phone.

    That's about it!

    Sounds like it... My centre speaker cuts out about a ¼ of second after the others and then "External In" is displayed on the CID. It pauses the CD too. See the locations of the mute wires in the pictures above and check that yours look similar.
