Product Details

Parrot Bluetooth Hands-Free Kit - MK6100

The new MK6100 Bluetooth® hands-free car kit with OLED high resolution monochrome display has the very special additional capability of streaming high quality digital stereo music from your compatible cell phone or music player (must be A2DP bluetooth streaming compatible or be an Ipod with an A2DP dongle attached). Once paired, the music player connects automatically to the MK6100. Press PLAY on the kit’s wireless remote control to start reading the MP3s and benefit from the digital amplifier which transforms your car into a true concert hall - wirelessly! No more need for a poor-quality FM Ipod interface or a special Ipod input adapter for your car! And when you get a call, the music automatically pauses and your call comes through like magic - even if your phone is a different device than the music player.

Comments about Parrot Bluetooth Hands-Free Kit:

BlackBerry users beware! I just had this unit installed and only AFTER the install was finished did I learn that the Parrot MK-6100 will not stay connected to a BB Curve 8330 (and other BB's) unless the BB is running the very latest device software version 4.5. My BB is through Sprint and Sprint's currently supported device software is version 4.3. Same is true for most other US carriers. To get device software version 4.5, you have to get it in a very clandestine way through a 3rd party source and your wireless carrier will not support it. Once version 4.5 is loaded on the BB, the Parrot unit will work fine and stay connected. But alas, there's now a MAJOR new problem - corporate email. If you get work email via your company's BB Enterprise Server, guess what? They are all still running older enterprise software that CAN NOT CONNECT to device software 4.5!! Yup ... in order to get the Parraot MK-6100 to work, you will not be able to get your work email! It would have been nice of ABT to let me know this BEFORE installing the sytem into my brand new car. Needless to say, unless they can figure out a way to get this unit working properly, it will be uninstalled and returned. I'm certainly not looking forward to spending another 2 hours of another Saturday at the store waiting for them to rip this pile of garbage out of my new car.

Service and delivery comments:

Very clean installation and the guys in the shop were all very professional and courteous. Too bad that I had to leave without the system working properly after having spent over $500 on the unit and install. Not very happy!

    Comments about Parrot Bluetooth Hands-Free Kit:

    I installed the MK6100 in my Ford Explorer. After spending an additional $60 for a wiring harness to make it compatible with my radio, it installed easily.

    Now the rest of the story. The wireless remote control only works occasionally. If it is not working, you will not be able to make a call. A new battery does not solve the problem. The mic is in the display. That mic is pretty much useless as you won't be heard even when shouting. They know that it is a problem because the kit comes with a separate mic that can be installed closer to your mouth. I installed it on the sun visor so that it is within 6 inches of my mouth. I still get complaints that the other party can't hear me. Talking loudly doesn't seem to help.

    If you have an iPhone there are additional problems. First, the firmware must be downgraded to an earlier version to be compatible with the phone. In that downgrade you lose some of the functionality of the system. If the remote happens to be working and you touch the green "answer" button, the MK6100 will dial the last number that you called on the phone. If that is not what you intended to do, you cannot stop the call with the MK6100. You must stop the call with the phone itself. Since the remote is attached to the steering wheel, I occasionally touch it. I have had to make several apologies.

    I consider this unit a waste of money. I will remove it from my car and search for something that is usable.
