Pi090020aa ?

Hello Hrato,

Unfortunately I don't have an answer to your question. I currently have a MKi9100 with a SOT 976 and no problem, no alarm.

May I ask you something? Could you confirm that your unika device is this model : PI090020AA ?

I've just found a seller who have this model. I wonder if I can connect this to my current SOT 976 connector.

I have tried to have just the Parrot without the Unika, and the alarm goes away.
My car BMW e90, NO NAVI, with Professional CD.
As anyone had something like this, or knows what can cause this type of alarm?
Thanks.
Hey, i had the mki 9100 plus unika professionally intalled, on day 1 after installation had some weird service lights. They went away on their own.

I believe thats a normal service indicator you are seeing, consult the manual. It tells how many miles left until next service.

HI.
Sorry for delay, but had to open car dash to java a look.
My Unika number is
P1090020AB
I used a AUDIO2CAR harness, which was plug n play.
Everything works ok, except for that alarm that comes for 2 seconds.

Hi.
But when I check my cars service interval, it still shoes long way to next service. And if I disconnect parrot and Unika, alarm goes away.
Can't really see what is wrong here.
Thanks

In this setup (sending Parrot through AUX, but phone through new speaker), does A2DP audio act like a phone call, or does it go over the AUX line?

thanks for a great write-up

One other question. If you are using the steering wheel controls and adjust volume, does it adjust the actual BMW head unit volume, or does it adjust the parrot's output?

Hello,

I have an 2008 BMW e90 with base audio, business cd, and today I ordered the parrot MKi 9100, and I don't know exactly how should I install it. I found this adapter is it ok for my car?

Also I don't know how should I connect it to the car. Should I use AUX, or directly to the speakers. I am asking this because I will also upgrade the sound sistem, with an amplifier and new speakers all around, and I want the best sound quality.

So I am thinking that connecting the parrot to the speakers would be better, because I read that the business CD doesn't exactly output the best sound.

Thank you!

Just got MKi9100 installed (with screen in ashtray) and with the ISO plug and sound via speaker output. I'm already planning to get line out into aux on Saturday. Main reason is that PDC doesn't work when you stream music (which I found out by almost reversing into a wall), sound quality is also crap. Line outs + aux sounds better, PDC works as usual (unless you're on the phone) and the volume will adjust with speed. I'm thinking about getting Unika installed as well but I have 2 questions:

1) What Source, Previous/Next, Volume buttons do when you use Radio, CD ?
2) Are volume +/- button change volume on parrot as well as on the head unit ?
3) Is the voice button working ?

One more question to Dan (thanks for your posts btw), is PDC working for you with external speaker for phone ? i guess not since head unit is muted.

1.) They retain oem functions if using radio, cd. Once you start streaming bt music via pandora or music player, it controls the app and parrot.
2.) No. Unika device controls the parrot volume if using the parrot. You still use the volume knob for louder or lower. I keep the parrot volume at 80% and only adjust the volume knob as needed.
3.) Voice button has no function.
I have a galaxy s4. Always update to newest parrot firmware.

I soldered the line out to aux today and quality of the sound is much better than before (parrot => speakers). This way isn't perfect as well but much better. I'm trying to find the kit that will allow me to add Unika to my setup, anyone has a link? I've seen it somewhere on the forum but can't find it.

Hi guys I have recently bought the mki9000 and am trying to install in my E92. I have managed to get the mic in place and have used a sot cable (976 I think) to connect the radio to the parrot. However I'm not getting any response from the parrot, I have connected the orange (switched ignition) cable to the cigar lighter but still nothing. Please help

I have not done anything with the mute cables or the red (constant live) lead as I'm assuming the sot cable takes care of these.
