Recently I"ve mounted CK3000 evolution. But my microphne is near the lamp.
Because on the mirror my voice wasn't clear enough.
But your place for microph. looks better.

And here is the Parrot's 3000 control

Originally I installed mic in front light dome - EOM location, but had people on the line complaining that the sound quality is not always good, specially, at freeway speeds ...
I guess parrot microphone designed to be in open space and after moving it to current location it performing MUCH better.

I am guessing that means it will work for E90 (330) with Logic 7 systems

WRONG

I have an e90 335i with logic 7 and i have a parrot ck3100, with a parrot multican steering wheel adapter working PERFECTLY.

The ck3100 was installed by the bmw dealer prior to me taking delivery of the car in April 07. I installed the multican myself just last month.


(they did not use a connects2 adapter)

Where did you source your ignition live from?

Based on your photo I have exact same stereo as yours.

with the correct iso connector,(im thinking about the ck3000)is it simply a case of connecting it all together,or do the cars wires have to be cut,at any stage.i have pro nav also,so does that mean the instalation will be different.

I thought with the steering wheel adaptor there's no need to have the ck3000 showing...i'm trying to have this be as close to OEM as possible. Can someone please let me know if; with the steering wheel adaptor to allow control with via the buttons on the wheel, there is a need to have the small parrot control switch showing as almost all of the above posts show?
