    you need the SOT lead for the different connection type on the rear of the vx head unit to fit the wiring from the Parrot kit ...

    should take roughly 45 mins-1 hour to fit yourself

    pretty easy to do ....

    permanant live from the Cigrette lighter ... and away you go

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    no you dont , the ccr 2006 doesnt need a different lead to fit a parrot , as i have just fitted one to mine all you have to do is seperate the existing block into 3 parts so it will fit in the parrot harness ( hell understand when he sees it )

    also strangely didnt need to get a live from cig lighter , just swapped the 2 power leads over and it worked

    word of warning though make sure you fully test it before refitting stereo as first time i di mine i had the mute lead on the wrong connector and whenever i finished using the parrot the stereo came back on at ear bleeding levels !!!!!

    Cheers again Mark installed today and you were right didn't need the extra SOT lead just cut the 1 blue block into 3 one for power one for speakers and one for the steering controls and display.
    Not much room to move but very easy to fit
    Didn't change over the power orange and red works ok as is and see what you mean about the mute wire tryed in number 2 my ears bleeding after the radio came back in so used number 3 mute all working great.
    just need to update in the morning when light again.
    Put ipod wires in glove box for now so hope when the iphone is pluged in inside the glove box I can get a good reception as phone not great signal strenth.

    right its easy to run the wires to the mic , i installed mine next to the front interior light
    all i did was remove glove box and passenger a pillar cover
    run cable under dash and up a pillar cover then tucked it along edge of the headlining at the screen
    removed interior light and fed cable throught there
    refitted al the bits and jobs a goodun

    i located all the parrot boxes behind the heater control panel

    its an easy install

    good to hear nath

    ive run the iphone wires under the gear stick and drinks holder and cut a hold in the cubby hole under the arm rest so can hide it if i want to
