-Imagine being able to make and receive phone calls through your car's radio or CD player! That's what Parrot, the world-leading innovator in Bluetooth(R) technology car kits, has achieved with the introduction of the industry's first car stereo that enables hands-free phone calling with Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones.
The Parrot RHYTHM N'BLUE features a premium AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo receiver. In addition to tuning in your favorite radio stations, Parrot RHYTHM N' BLUE lets you listen to your CDs and MP3s while pairing with most Bluetooth mobile phones on the market, allowing the driver to make calls, take calls, and access a mobile address book totally hands-free via Parrot's renowned voice-recognition technology. A quick glance at your receiver provides Caller ID, and the radio or music source is automatically muted as the phone audio is routed through the vehicle's speakers for crisp, clear audio... and, because it's Bluetooth, you can do this all without being tethered to your phone.
Parrot RHYTHM N' BLUE utilizes a detachable anti-theft faceplate that features an integrated telephone keypad. The keypad cleverly controls both phone dialing and messaging functions, as well as radio station presets in the audio mode.
Address book and other personalized features from the mobile phone easily synchronize with Parrot RHYTHM N' BLUE's internal memory, allowing the driver to quickly access contacts and make calls hands-free.
The audio section of Parrot RHYTHM N' BLUE is highly capable as well, loaded with key features for today's tech-savvy consumers. The CD transport has been designed to read CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and MP3 formats--and the listener has the option to activate random-play, intro-play, or repeat functions for each format. The ID3 tag will display text information pertaining to MP3 tracks, and there is a search menu for tracks and playlists as well. The Parrot RHYTHM N' BLUE also comes equipped with an AM/FM RDS tuner with a capacity for 30 preset stations in memory, and a powerful 4 x 45 watt internal amplifier.
Parrot RHYTHM N' BLUE is Parrot's latest addition to its line of Bluetooth mobile phone hands-free car kits.
