|Parrot Advanced Bluetooth Car Kit - Grey Finish|
I purchased a Parrot CK3100 for my 2002 Toyota Highlander. The first (test) call I made was very clear, miles better than some of the car stereos w/ bluetooth built in. This unit has been consistent for 3 1/2 years without any pairing problems to speak of. Parrot produces software updates often that solve any conflict with newer phones. These updates can be done yourself, but require a little knowledge of USB dongles - other wise your installer can do it. The current update is version 4.18b_C (as of 1/29/2009) The easy install kit (sold separately or by installer) uses an existing car speaker in your car and mutes it while the car stereo is playing and also works when the stereo is off (through the same speaker). Transferring in and out of my car is seamless and doesn't "kill" my phone to shut off my car when I park, get out and walk with my phone (still talking). We have LG series phones and love this devise. I am writing this review while shopping for another one for our hybrid we just purchased.
