Parrot ck3000 evolution bluetooth car kit – instantly pays for itself. I purchased this brilliant piece of kit because i grew tired of getting calls and not actually being able to answer them in the car, mainly because talking on your phone whilst driving is illegal (even though so many plonkers do it) so, i looked around on ebay but amazon turned out to be loads cheaper. Connecting all the iso connectors is the easy part of the installation, finding cable routing and a home behind your dashboard for the 2 boxes that contain the ‘brains’ for the kit is the hard bit. I ended up removing the glovebox from my astra’s dashboard (6 screws) as i found this the easiest way to see what was really going on behind the dashboard.Long story short i managed to install everything. I ended up placing the microphone (using the supplied 3m sticky pad) on the base of the instruments binnacle pointing upwards towards me, so sound travels through the steering wheel into the microphone. I installed the small ‘keypad’ just below the microphone on the dashboard – easily accessible whilst driving. They recommend installing the microphone next to your rear view mirror, but this isn’t realistic in the majority of cars, as it involves removing a lot of trim and routing the microphone cable back down behind the dashboard. So have a look around and see where you can mount the microphone on your dashboard.My pioneer headunit had a small gap by the side of it and so i managed to route the two cables for the microphone and keypad through this gapthe only problem i had during installation was selecting the correct mute cable.

This is the second one we have bought and it is perfect, the only thing i didn’t check was that it needed an adapter kit for our focus which cost about £14.

Parrot ck3000 evolution bluetooth handsfree car kiti bought this for my wifes golf mk6. Once i had managed to get the appropriate cable to make it compatible with the radio head unit (not many sites list the golf mk6 yet)all the functionality worked well. The voice quality is very good and an equal to the kit professionally installed in my bmw. If you are not sure on how to fit, there are lots of internet sites that give you help. Only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that there is no foam for the microphone, harsh i know but the only fault i can record.

Parrot CK3000 Hands-Free Car Kit : I bought this item from halfords (1st mistake), as they offered free fitting and i wasn’t comfortable pulling apart the dashboard of my clio. They charged me £99, but i since found out that is way over the top for price (so it isn’t really free fitting is it). The first problem i encountered was that it didn’t seem to retain all the information after i switched off the ignition. Then i realised that it didn’t switch off at all and finally i realised that my cigarette lighter socket didn’t work. All of these were down to it not being fitted properly by halfords. They had missed that renault clio’s have reverse polarity on the chassis (even though there is a big warning on the parrot fitting instructions) and they hadn’t re-connected the power lead to the cig lighter after messing about – hence my sat-nav went flat half way to a destinationon the actual item itself, there are still a few niggles which you ought to consider:1. If you have to re-record the info for a contact, the ck3000 evo will treat it as a new contact, and when you say the voice tag, if it is the same as the old voice tag (i. Same persons name) then the evo will probably revert to the old data because it was the first one recorded.

Simple, reliable, easy to fit, fantastic. This kit is easy to assemble and fit; you get a generous amount of signal and power cables terminating in standard iso connectors. Of course, if you intend to fit this to a car with a factory-fitted stereo, you’ll have to tap into the cables; parrot provide a reasonably clear wiring diagram in the manual, but you’ll have to figure out the car-side cables on your own. Thankfully my car has an aftermarket stereo with iso cables, so connecting it all up was a breeze. The long cables are both a benefit and a drawback because you might not have much space to stash them; i ended up mounting the control module inside the centre console armrest behind the handbrake and running the cables under the console to the radio, as it made best use of the cables and the tight space behind the head unit. When correctly connected, the unit will draw power from the same connector (and fuse) as the radio. It has a wire to sense the ignition key position, and will only activate itself when the radio receives power. After switching to acc or starting the engine, there is a delay of around 5 seconds, after which the unit beeps to say it’s connected. As soon as the car is switched off, it beeps again to say disconnected. Connecting it to my smartphone (galaxy nexus) worked first time.

Brilliant product – brilliant service. Ordered via amazon market place (avides. Item was dispatched and arrived with me on the first expected day. The only fiddly bit is running the microphone up to the interior light, and then squeezing the wires behind or next to the radio. I would suggest taking out the glove box to do it so you can see where it’s all going. Overall – a brilliant product, and a reasonable price.

I bought this as a present for my son for his birthday (39), and he loves it. Only two downsides – having looked at the fitting instructions he decided it was best to have it fitted professionally (cost him about £40), and to programme in the voice recognition for automatic dialling is a bit hit and miss, it does eventually get there but you have to be patient and just keep repeating the name.

So far no problems with this car kit. The only thing is i wished i purshased earlier, as i didn’t get on with the earpieces. Would recommend to anyone, sound quaility is good, it does what it says on the box. The only down side is, but it could be me, is that when recording your voice it doesn’t always reconise what you said when you’re trying to dial someone that you’ve recorded voice control. But like i say that just could be me.

Some road noise reported by people receiving calls from me but crystal clear sound into my car from callers. For this money an excellent hands-free kit that takes up very little space on the dashboard.
