About the Parrot CK3100
Add Bluetooth connectivity to your car stereo system
Add Bluetooth connectivity to your car stereo system
Want hands-free phone operation and control of your phone's features when behind the wheel? Parrot's CK3100 Bluetooth cell phone car kit connects to almost any car stereo system so you can take calls from your Bluetooth phone through your car's speakers. A small LCD screen mounted on your dash displays caller information and allows access to your phone's menu functions. We carry cell phone kit harnesses that allow plug-in connection of Parrot's Bluetooth car kits in a wide variety of vehicles.
The CK3100 control panel installs beneath the dashboard, so all you see is the small dash-mounted LCD screen/keypad and an external microphone. Once your car's engine starts, the kit connects automatically to your Bluetooth phone. With the microphone mounted, just say a name and the CK3100 takes care of the dialing. The CK3100 can work with up to five Bluetooth devices at one time.
Convenient control panel
You control your phone's menu functions with the dash-mounted LCD screen and 3-button keypad. From dialing to phonebook to voicemail, the keypad and voice prompts will guide you easily through functions as you keep your eyes on the road. You can change the volume with the press of a button.
Easy-to-read LCD screen
Parrot's LCD screen displays valuable information from your phone, including Caller ID, listings for the last calls received and dialed, plus dialing with numbers. You can even see the strength of your phone's signal.
The voice recognition software remembers up to 150 names from your phone's address book for dialing (only works with certain phones). Noise reduction on the external microphone lets you carry on a conversation in a normal tone — no need to shout, even in heavy traffic. Most importantly, the CK3100 is programmed to mute your car's radio at the onset of an incoming call, ensuring clear sound over your car's speakers.
The Parrot CK3100 is compatible with all Bluetooth cell phones and installs with most factory and aftermarket car stereo systems. Some factory systems may require an additional wiring adapter.
Note: Compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.
Time-saving connections for your car
Crutchfield carries cell phone kit harnesses that allow easy, plug-in connection of Parrot's Bluetooth car kits in a wide variety of vehicle factory systems. You can also use these harnesses in conjunction with many aftermarket systems in compatible vehicles, as long as the factory stereo connections are available.
