Getting a Parrot 3200LS installed later this week and cannot decide where is best to mount the control unit?

Anyone got any suggestions/pics?

Cheers

Its an amazing bit of kit, havnt really played about with it much, heard u can put peoples pics up when they call! But i am well impressed with it. i had the 3100 which is just the same with a LCD display. Both really good;-) Where mines is positioned is ideal. Thinking about changing it as i have just ordered a dension 100m + cradle...
:D

How is it wired in? what is in the box? Is there a microphone as I couldn't tell from the info on the parrot website?

Any help is greatly appreciated as I am new to all this

Thanks

Hi HappyMan,

It was already installed when i got the car a few months ago. The microphone has been installed in the roof near the centre lights. If you are installing yourself, it shouldnt be too tricky just follow the wiki guide on here.

I had mine installed for free from Halfords where I bought it the Microphone was wired through the front pillar, the sound quality is very good as it goes through the car speakers

Thats exactly what I am doing...I am just waiting for them to tell me when I can have it fitted. (Just waiting for the lead to connect it to the head unit as apparently its non-standard.)

Are you able to remove the Parrot 3200LS from the car when you are not there or not really?

TBH i wouldnt let anyone from halfords near my car. Most of the guys from the local halfords here were from my school and i wouldnt trust them with a peanut let alone a monkey wrench!!!

The Halfords that I had mine done were excellent, I must admit that I was a bit wary at first but they were very proffesional in their work

No, as its hard wired you can't remove it
I was thinking about putting mine behind the silver shelf door. Work in progress!!

I am now slightly worried.....just chatted to the Halfords dude and he has never fitted one in a Civic before and has no idea on taking out the stereo to fit the wires etc.

Should I get somebody else to fit it?

Also just realised that the pic above has a mount...going to be interesting finding a mount point for it!

Have printed out the "How to"' from here to give to the man from Halfords...will see what he says!

Still a little nervous that he might damage something but I am guessing they cover any damage done?

Well Halfords chickened out....which to be honest after watching the guy poke at my dash with a screw driver I was glad about.

To be fair to the guy he printed out the instructions and had a look at the "how to" from here and started the job but after 10 mins he said that he was afraid to damage the car so gave it up. Got a full refund and suggested I try a car audio specialist.

I drove up to Uplands in Bristol and had a word with the guy, I ended up getting a 3100 installed in the storage area under the radio for a little more than halfords wanted but the Nick from the store did a brilliant job...Bristol Honda actually use him to do all their aftermarket installs.

You cannot see any wires etc with the solver door closed and the micrphone wire is hidden with the mic actually in the spot where the HFT one goes.

Will certainly be going back there if I need anything else done (speakers etc)
