I had the same prob, but with the MKi9100 - Parrot UK told me that the MKi9200 did not have this issue and that it has a lower level out put for connecting directly to the iso....

Anyway, I solved it by buying an adaptor to connect into the CD changer plug (losing the CD).

Then they had to fit another small speaker in front to play the phone part. All rather messy, but it works well.

Looks like your solution is neater, but check with Parrot first about connectiong directly from the MKi9200.

Re: Adding hands free unit!!! help...

OK, I understand about the money!

For some reason the car sound people had to install a separate little speaker for the phone part only - not sure why.

If you spend the 100 euros, is that the end of it?

Might be worth it in the end ... rather than all that soldering, splicing, spilling solder on the trim when you could be spilling Guinness!

Right, then, now I need your help.

I took my RR in to have my Parrot installation "fixed"

They have succeeded in screwing up the whole thing.

Connected the Parrot directly to the front speakers only, ie not through the head unit. Click has returned, together with a whine when the engine runs.

Before I go into battle (I am REALLY not happy!), did your "box" do the trick? Does it go between the Parrot blue box and the head unit?

Thanks for the help!

Re: Adding hands free unit!!! help...

Many thanks for the swift reply - glad I read it before fighting!

Anyway, the CD input is what I had before! A small black box that takes phono input one side (ie from the Parrot) and has the special plug to connect to the CD changer cable.

This worked tolerably well - at least it feeds all the car's speakers through the head unit.

But, they had to fit a secondary speaker to feed the phone calls to .......

Now i have to get them (the second fitters) to restore it to what the first fitters did!

Thanks for your help and patience!

AH!

So that is why they fitted a small speaker - just for the phone.

Otherwise, when not switched to CD, there would be no phone call!

Cheers.
