Parrot Car Receiver Peppered with USB Ports

Parrot is launching their new car stereo receive which has strayed away from the trend of all touch screen interface.  The Asteroid is a Google Android based receiver with loads of features and functionality. The receiver still has a graphical interface to display the content being played, but the navigation is all “old school” buttons and radial dial. Parrot Asteroid What is most interesting about the new Parrot receive is the many number of USB ports located on the back side.  With the four USB ports the Asteroid gives the user plenty of options. Of course you’ll get the expected RCA jacks for hooking up your car’s stereo system and a 3.5 mm jack for connecting your MP3 player.  The Asteroid has three high speed USB ports and one 1.1 USB port.  One of those USB ports can be used for the included GPS dongle for navigating via Parrot Maps. The other USB ports can be used for just about anything you want.  Parrot indicates the back-side USB connections will be easily accessible through the glove compartment. Hook up a USB broadband stick [provided by you] and you’ve got Internet access in your car. Plugging in your phone to the USB 1.1 port for charging or connect to an external hard drive and you’ve got access to your entire music collection via Parrot’s voice command. Parrot Asteroid USB The Asteroid by Parrot is expected to ship by summer and if this audio receiver has you all excited, I’m sorry to report we didn’t find pricing as of yet.
