4.0 out of 5 stars good but not brilliant! 11 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
purchased this due to rave reviews in auto express. Generally works fine but takes a bit of setting up as instructions are basic to say the least. The sound quality when making a call is not good for the receiver of the call but is fine in the vehicle through the built in speaker. I purchased this as an option to having an earpiece and it does its' job but is more suited to people who spend longer journeys or a lot of time in the vehicle. By the time I have put the screen mount on, plugged the charging cables in and then remember to set phone to bluetooth I am late setting off.
It is undoubtedly a good product and the phonebook option is splendid too - I do however feel that an earpiece would have suited my needs best. That is not the parrots' fault that is a buying error!
For anyone doing journeys of 20 mins and over every day it would be brilliant.
I gave 4 stars as it is a very good product.

Parrot failed to replace this unit as the serial numbers did not match, which was due to the early failure of the base unit control knob. would not but another one of these ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 14 Mar 2014
By Mandy
Verified Purchase
I had a Parrot Minikit Slim for about 4 years, and when it 'gave up the ghost' I thought I'd replace it with the Minikit Smart. Oh dear! For a start, the microphone quality is truly appalling. To callers I sound like I am either under water or turning into a dalek. Compared to the Minikit Slim this unit is virtually unusable. I have tried re-siting the microphone but it made little difference.

Secondly, the phone I am using (HTC One) which the Parrot website says is fully compatible, does not function correctly when linked to the unit. The Minikit Smart has a 'power-through' facility whereby the phone can be charged from a USB socket using the supplied cable. Unfortunately, my phone (like many modern units) uses MTP (media transfer protocol) which means that if the provided data lead is connected the charge rate is reduced. The effect of this is that I cannot use satnav on my phone as the discharge rate is greater than the charge rate, so the battery drains in a couple of hours - not good if I'm on a long journey! I contacted Parrot about this, but they were less than helpful.

Have returned it for a refund, and will buy an HTC V100 bluetooth speaker instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking bit of kit. 7 Sep 2013
By Fred
After reading some of the reviews on here and in other places I was a bit hesitant at buying this item. I have just upgraded my phone to a Nokia Lumia 925 and wanted to make use of the built in Satnav. So after looking at various options I decided to go with the Parrot Smart.

All I can so far is that it is an excellent piece of equipment. Once out of the box I panicked a little because the unit started to talk to me in Dutch. The manual thankfully comes in various languages and the straightforward instructions explained how to go onto the Parrot site and download the latest software update for English UK. You will need a USB stick for this because the update is downloaded onto the stick. You then plug the stick into the unit and follow the instructions. The update took all of 2 minutes, then a lovely English Female Voice informs you that the update was complete. So very easy and effortless.

My phone fitted very snuggly into the unit and was held in tight, no way would it slip or vibrate out, the cushion pads really do hold it in tight. Just a word of warning, anything larger than a Lumia 925 will just not fit into the unit, so please check the size of your phone first.

After a bit of tinkering I soon learned how to use the controls. Red button switches on, off and ends calls, Green allows you to make calls and to confirm any actions you have asked the unit to perform. You scroll through the various actions with the control wheel, then confirm with green button or just push the scroll wheel in to confirm. The instructions in the manual are a little basic but it does tell you this in the manual. If you want the full blown instructions just simply download them from the Parrot site.

It is similar to the fixed installation I have in my own vehicle. This is for the works vehicle and enables us to remain within the law when driving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Parrot Minikit Smart Universal Bluetooth Car Kit 15 May 2012
By Robin
Verified Purchase
Good machine, may be a little overpriced but it is robust and very much up to the job. It seems to work well in most circumstances and the mount, once properly in place, is solid and unmoveable, which is what is needed.
