Paris, April 11th 2012 - Parrot, leader in Automotive Connectivity solutions, announced today its OEM technology is integrated into a new vehicle platform by a major German car manufacturer, already a Parrot customer.
The models equipped within this project are hatchbacks, coupés and sedans. The Parrot solution is currently available in cars sold in Europe before expanding to other markets during 2012.
This solution includes state-of-the-art hands-free telephony features. It can handle and synchronize a phonebook containing up to 5.000 contacts. It is able to pair with four different mobile phones. Besides, it manages a mobile internet connection using the customer’s phone via the DUN and PAN protocols. This internet access is used to run the manufacturer’s telematics services.
“Parrot currently supplies the majority of German car manufacturers. With this new introduction, we are glad to extend the implementations of Parrot technology within the Premium cars market, with best-in-class compatibility and easy-to-use features.” said Eric Riyahi, Executive VP at Parrot.
