Phone Hands Free Kit

With all the advanced functions it easy to forget this is primarily a phone hands free kit for your car. This means the Asteroid Mini will mute your car stereo on call handling, and resume when finished, without user intervention.

It will also automatically connect to your phone, and allows two devices to maintain a Bluetooth connection at the same time. You can answer from either, and switch between devices to make calls (also known as Multipoint or Dual Phone). Your contacts are synchronized and updated when paired, with a massive space of up to 5,000 contacts per phone, or up to 50,000 in total.

Asteroid Mini in carThere is a maximum space of 10 paired devices, and the Mini automatically remembers the most recent pairings. If more than two devices are present the main driver of the car will take priority, if they were the last driver.

The remote control is hard wired and neatly placed on the dash. It will gently glow when the light goes down and never need battery replacement. It also features a substantial remote button for effortless use and easy phone hands free kit menu control.

Music Play

A big feature with the Asteroid range is music play. It comes with an apple and a USB lead, for direct connection to music playing devices.

There is a 4x40W MOSFET amplifier for improved sound quality that does not use the car stereo built-in amplifier. Customers should note however, that this kit plays music through the car speakers, and will be limited by their capability. To use these external inputs the 'SRC' button is pressed on the kit, and by pressing SRC again, music is returned to the car stereo.

Parrot also say that voice recognition is capable on peripheral devices, but we cannot guarantee this. Firstly it requires metadata to be contained on music files and customers to use the correct metadata words. Secondly, as will all voice recognition, you need a quiet cabin space and a clear voice. Lastly, it must be said that voice recognition systems need a savvy user, willing to put in time for what is usually a steep learning curve. For this reason we do not guarantee any voice recognition systems with hands free kits for cars.

Importantly music quality is not available to customers with amplified cars. In this case music is only played through the front car speakers and will be poor (not a problem if music is not a priority). The cost of installing any HFK into an amplified vehicle is also much higher depending on the particular requirements of the vehicle.

The Asteroid Mini can also play music through a SD card placed directly into the side of the screen.

Parrot Asteroid Apps and Connectivity

The Parrot Asteroid Mini integrates with useful Apps, most of them free.

Asteroid navigation

These include Weather, live radio, driving assistance and navigation and is an exciting new feature unique to the Asteroid range. Apps are downloaded onto a USB device, from your computer, and then installed via the USB lead connected to the kit.

Again this process requires a tech savvy user, willing to learn how to use the system.

Please note that not all apps are available for the Mini, as some are designed for the larger, touchscreen, Parrot Asteroid Tablet device.
