The most unstable thing I ever had
I used to have Parrots in my cars and so I bought the MKi9200 as their top of the line.
It is great!;(
1) It goes on when you start your car!
Well, sometimes it does not... half of the times actually.
2) It shows you the names of the songs!
Great, but you can't read them on the imbecile built-in wallpapers. And the song-artist roll over and over the screen which is very distracting while driving. (Attempt to replace the wallpapers wasn't rewarded...)
3) You can choose a song!
Well, it takes three times the effort and attention than doing it on the iPhone directly which you can't when wired to Parrot... The user interface logic is crap. I rather use bluetooth.
4) You can listen to your music!
Well, there are clitches and scratches in the sound, sometimes only when BT connected sometimes also when wired... Some issues with the iPod's equalizer I assume. Not mentioning you need a special muting accessory for Bose audio systems that compromises if not distorts the sound.
5) You can use sound effects!
Joke... never heard something so terribly implemented (since Windows Media Player fx:).
6) And yes, you can call!
The remote-brain communication is not on the speedy side however, accepting a call does not have to be a success... Sometimes the thing doesn't react at all.
After all, the mic is very good so they hear me fine. If connected.
What a mistake - this is the least stable piece of electronics I use today. Hey Parrot, we enjoy Apple products these days, we got spoiled by things we can really use, control and understand. Wake up! It's 2010...
