    Parrot Asteroid Smart

    Has anyone else fitted one of these? I'm quite pleased with mine but would like to 'bling' it up a bit! Anyone got any tips on how to improve it? It's a bit limited with the only apps available being the ones that Parrot provide. Has anyone tried side loading apps? How about changing the boot screen?

    I've changed the horrible background with the temporary image attached. I'll do it properly when I get time...

    Considering there must be a lot of folk out there either without SatNav or with the un-updatable and outdated Jaguar SatNav, I'm surprised no one else has fitted one of these...

    Thing is if you have the touch screen, you need to retain it for other functions, audio, climate etc.

    Hi Nezzer,

    I have been looking at the Parrot as an upgrade as I am not certain about the quality of the 'chinese' double din units available, and many other non china units appear to be produced for iphone users (of which I am not one!). Would you mind posting a few pictures of it in the car and indicate if there are any 'care points' to consider during fitting?

    My car is non touchscreen, so going DD is really the only sensible upgrade taking cost into account.

    Thanks

    Steve

    And that reminds me, I hate the miss-match of colours. It still looks crap after spending weeks trying to find a colour match...
