    Default My new Parrot!!

    Just installed today, finally got the correct lead from Halfords

    sound is fantastic and the voice recognition is great aswell, although can be a bit hit and miss

    The only problem so far is that its having problems with my ipod touch, it worked ok the first time it was plugged in but now it comes up with an error?

    The display fixed to the dash above the drivers vent


    the cables for connecting Ipod,usb etc


    Ipod attatched

    Looks smart, nice fit on the iPod touch. Was there much hassle involved running all the cables?

    Thanks,

    No the cables were not as bad as I was expecting, I removed the glove box for ease of access, the only tight bit was behind the radio, I had to split the aerials from the main loom to get the SOT lead connected.

    Hi Andy,

    my car didnt have the Aux input, the cables that are in the tray come with the Parrot kit, there is an Ipod cable, Usb cable and a Jack plug.

    I was going to put them under the arm rest but it proved too fiddly for me

    With the Ipod connected the Album covers are displayed on the Parrot screen and all the music is access via the parrot screen and remote control.

    The screen and remote are both removable for security.

    Can I ask where have you fitted the microphone, I can't see it in the photos and where did you get the 12v ignition feed from?
