I think you have inverted the plug from the head unit to the blue box. I did that too. Flip it and it will light up.Just did this DIY today. I have a 2003 325i, Business Class head unit. Great write up and easy to follow. Couple of questions:
1. I can't seem to get the steering wheel buttons to control the Parrot Unit. (Double checked the connections to make sure the Parrot Controller is plugged in). Using an Iphone 3G, which is paired and working fine with the radio. I can answer calls when choose the Parrot from the audio sources within the Iphone. Does the use of the Iphone 3G not allow the use of the steering wheel buttons?
2. The controller for the Parrot has green and red LEDs. Are they suppossed to light up or not? I was thinking that maybe this is the reason why I can't use the steering wheel buttons.
Other than that, everything seems to be working fine.
hmm, actually I have a nokia e71 and I installed nokia maps thru nokia ovi suite.I did the install a few days ago, definitely worth it!
Nope, just phone calls. I actually accidentally triggered a voice command to play an artist the other day, the Parrot kept the phone up long enough to figure out it wasn't a phone call and then disconnected.
I just got a nexus s. bluetooth didn't work with parot 5.09chmm, actually I have a nokia e71 and I installed nokia maps thru nokia ovi suite.
my phone has a builtin gps. so I'm not using data. quite accurate, total shock.
with gps off, I can have radio on, so whne call comes in, it mutes the radio or switches to phone.
with gps on, the radio is no longer on, like streaming audio. so I should be able to listen to music thru bluetooth streaming from my phone.
I'm due for an upgrade, switching out from rogers to wind/mobilicity. I want data, looking at android phones but don't know which ones will or will not work with the parrot. is there an official list that's updated?
I wanted an iphone5 but doubt it'll be compatible. I will not be going with a blackberry.
you don't have to buy it.Where did you guys buy your parrot kit? their going for an outrages price on ebay 100$+!! please help?
