Parrot announces new music Bluetooth car kit

Parrot announced the PMK5800, which is the manufacturer’s later car kit solution. It is “plug and play” device, not requiring installation – just plug it in the car’s cigarette lighter and it works, using it as a power source.

Parrot offers a few other similar devices, but this is the first one to feature multimedia capabilities. It connects to your phone using Bluetooth connection, but thanks to the A2DP profile it can also get stereo music from it. After it receives it, the car kit transmits this music through its built-in FM transmitter. After this you can “receive” it through every radio nearby, using your plain car stereo radio without any adapters for it or for your cellphone.

Parrot PMK5800 should handle conversations well as it supports DSP technology and full duplex sound. It also features voice recognition. It is expected this summer, at the price of 89Euro, which is about $120.
