Parrot bluetooth for phone
It always puzzled me why the Dynamique would have Bluetooth installed as standard yet offer Parrot Bluetooth as an option. I don't know the answer but my car has both!
This is where I get confused. The built in system seems fine to me, though I never managed to persuade it to offer the opportunity to link two phones. Otherwise is works well and clearly.
The Parrot system has a miniscule 3 line blue on black screen no more than 1.5 x 0.5 inches which is utterly unreadable on the move and not much better when motionless. It recognised one of my phones automatically. It has a measure of voice recognition, incoming calls respond to the command ACCEPT or REJECT. The instruction book is thick but the English bit is lacking in substance. There might be a way to link the phone's contact list, depending on the phone but if you have more than one entry for a name you rely on that damned screen to choose which entry to accept. Of course you've got to know what name you have in the contact list. Hopeless.
I managed to receive a call okay, though I'm not sure the Parrot disconnected the call when asked, it still seemed live till killed at the other end. Having the Parrot appears to have wiped out the original system unless anyone knows better.
So what is the point? Why would anyone pay £275 extra for something that removes the ability to use the satnav screen when calling? I reckon it's about as much use as the split 60/40 rear seat that the Dynamique's supposed to have. Fold it to check the battery's still there, perhaps? Or fold it to make room for an extra battery....
