Parrot CK3000 EVOLUTION Bluetooth Car Kit Review

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team



CK3000 is equipped with voice menus, which allow you to use the accessories that go with the device; you can navigate through them by the central rotating button. You have options for a few languages, for setting the sound level (by по default) and for setting the voice commands.

The voice management includes numbers dialing by a voice tag and the use of commands. The magic word function is maintained for those, allowing you to answer or to close incoming calls without pressing any buttons.

In order to use this function, you have to record your voice (the system is not speaker independent) by the „Telephone” and “Hang Up” commands (you can choose any command, which will then be used for the purpose). If you want to use voice dialing, you’ll have to record commands for “Cellular”, “Home”, “Work” phones, so that, in case one of your contacts has more than one number, you’ll be able to choose which exactly to dial.

Voice dialing is not the easiest thing to do, but once adjusted, it works. The kit has its autonomous system, which has nothing to do with that of your phone. After you set in the menu that you want to record a voice name, the kit will disconnect from your phone and it’ll require that you send it a contact card. After it has received the contact card, it’ll ask you to record the voice tag for the respective name. Thus you have to record them name by name. If you want to use many contacts, this’ll take quite a lot of time, since sending and recording each contact is a slow procedure. The kit allows for a maximum of 150 contacts to be recorded.

In standby mode the voice dialing of contacts is done either after pressing the green button, or the magic words after saying the „Telephone” command have been activated.

The voice commands can be used only for the phone from which the respective contact has been sent. Therefore, if you use the kit with phones X and Y and you send contacts only from the phone X, you will not be able to voice-dial the contacts when you’re connected with the phone Y.

My cx3000 evolution will not pair with my new Nokia E72 phone even though the Parrot website says it is compatible.
Does anyone know why?
