The remote control gives you access to the main functions: PLAY, PAUSE, NEXT SONG, PREVIOUS SONG, and VOLUME. The MKi9100 displays the playlist for you to always visualize what is played.

Your voice takes control
The MKi automatically synchronize the names and phone numbers in your mobile with their phonebooks and updates the phonebooks each time a new entry is detected.
To access your phonebook and make a call, simply press the green button to start the user-independent voice recognition: the MKi recognize your voice and the name you are saying without any prior teaching process. You can also directly access the phonebook and browse all the names thanks to the voice synthesis (Text To Speech). So simple!

Wide compatibility and perfect integration
The MKi series offer the widest compatibility with existing and future Bluetooth mobile phones, thanks to its full compatibility with the Bluetooth wireless communication protocol.
The software of the MKi is upgradeable for free at any time from our web site. And to benefit a higher integration in the vehicle, MKi can be interfaced with an optional module – Parrot MULTICAN – which uses the existing steering wheel mounted commands to control your Parrot Bluetooth hands-free car kit. There is no additional visible part to install; it only uses the existing car’s steering wheel control buttons.
You keep controlling the car radio from the steering wheel and if the steering wheel doesn’t have enough buttons, the Parrot MULTICAN uses a specific combination of buttons to compensate for the missing ones. At least a fully invisible Bluetooth hands free solution!
