Looks the business - better than the original, can plug an iPod into it via glovebox and also full bluetooth for calls and streaming.
I have one in my 159 works almost faultlessly. I have an iPod plugged in in the glovebox and my iPhone 4 connects through bluetooth. There's no cd\dvd or ad slots so it's either iPod or USB drive but that's not a problem, it plays music or video straight off he iPod and will play music via the Bluetooth from my phone (albeit not perfectly). Only issue with it is the phone doesn't always show as connected even though it is which prevents dialling out using the touch screen, incoming calls work perfectly though every time. Biggest plus is that it looks and sounds so much better than the oem Alfa kit and it's very reasonably priced.
If you want to see some pics let me know.
What goes around usually gets dizzy and falls over.
Do you mind me asking who fitted your parrot system? Did you do it yourself or did you get an ICE installer to do it?
I'm a bit of a spastic with a screwdriver, and wouldn't trust myself to do it without breaking something. I see that Halfords will install a parrot for free, but I'm not sure I'd trust them either...
I had mine done at Sextons. I think it was £280 supplied and fitted. Thats a MK9200i (my second - got one fitted to the wifes car aswell). They really are excellent value for money and work brilliantly.
I did it myself, and yes it is not plug and play owing to the missing switched live. I tapped into the cig lighter wiring for that. The Parrot allows audio streaming from my phone SatNav ap which B&M does not and in any case the Parrot sound quality on calls is much better (probably owing to the mic position).
