Parrot RKi8400 In-Dash Car Stereo for iPhone

So what are your options when it comes to integrating your iPhone into
your automotive environment? You can purchase a separate Bluetooth
cradle so you can make hands-free calls through your car speakers via
some type of FM-band transmitter, you can jack your iPhone into your
stereo if your car has a line-in option, you can connect it to a
separate FM transmitter and stream your music…there are a number
of options but they all tend to have the same issues, more wires. The
latest product from Paris-based Parrot, the RKi8400, finally offers a
fairly seamless way to integrate your iPhone into your car without
feeling like you've just been through an Italian food fight.
The Parrot RKi8400 is a unique product in that it is an in-dash car
stereo that was specifically designed for use with the iPhone. The
system gives users the ability to browse the Apple smartphone's music
with album cover art on its 2.4-in LCD and automatically invokes
hands-free mode when a call comes in. Equipped with a 200 W MOFSET
amplifier, the Parrot RKi8400 is totally integrated into the vehicle's
audio system. Conversations and music are transmitted via the speakers
and the RKi8400 has a built-in equalizer and includes sound effects that
can be adapted to any style of music.
The RKi8400 has a removable front panel (behind which is located a handy
storage compartment) and the main functions are all accessible via a
front-mounted rotary button. The very first time you connect the Parrot
RKi8400 to your mobile phone, it automatically copies the contacts in
your mobile's phonebook. To make a call, use the voice-recognition
function and say the name of the person you want to call.
