Parrot's ASTEROID Mini multimedia system with Bluetooth offers you the same handy features you'll find in their ASTEROID in-dash digital media receiver, but with a 3.2" screen that you can mount on your dash or another convenient location in your vehicle.
Zak: I'm at the Parrot booth at CES 2013, and Frederique, tell me about the ASTEROID Mini.
Frederique: Okay. ASTEROID Mini's a new generation device. It's just a stand-alone unit, so it goes just in between the existing radio and the vehicle, the speakers of the vehicle. And basically it offers the same features as the Smart. So you have the hands-free, Bluetooth hands-free. You have the complete hub for your digital music, plus applications. So the good thing is you don't have to remove the existing radio to benefit the Parrot technology and to use apps like navigation or radios, Smart radios.
Zak: That's fantastic. Well, thanks Frederique. That's the ASTEROID Mini from Parrot.
