Mein Auto: 2008 BMW X3
Parrot Asteroid Tablet

Hi all

I have just bought a 2008 X3 2.0ld SE and want to get a Parrot Asteroid Tablet to give bluetooth and nav capability. Anyone else got any of the asteroid range? Does anyone know what extra cables and adaptors I will need in order to fit into the X3?

Thanks!
Darren

Thanks for the reply but to be honest I like the integration of the parrot - not having separate speakers for the nav. I do like the OEM look of that one though..... May have to take a better look at it

I like using my phone, it's nav is so much more advanced than anything in-dash these days. Map updates are free and there is traffic and modern POI support. It also integrates with YELP, redfin and the browser for finding places based off a search.

Most later model US X3's shipped with factory BT via the assist module which makes BT calling less important and the speaker on the phone gets an auditorium effect that makes it useable from the cradle mount.
