Hi, new to the forum but what a great place to get and share info. I just bought my wife a new/leftover cayenne v6 and she loves it. She was hesitant on swapping her x5 but so far she is thrilled. Unfortunately there is no real good bluetooth solution yet from Porsche. It would be nice to have ipod and especially bluetooth for those needing hands-free in a car. Going to a local stereo shop to have Parrot ck3100 installed. Anyone have any history on this install? Is it safe? I would hate to have something get messed up with the navigation unit. I would appreciate anyone's two cents. Thanks! :huh:

I've got the Dension GW500 solution for ipod (& usb) installed, works great.

I added the dension BT1000 bluetooth solution today, what a mess. yes it's handsfree, but that's about it.

I've heard the parrot ck3100 downloads your contact list from your phone onto itself + boosts sleek design, sounds better to me.

Maybe I'll just buy a dual simcard and use that with my cayenne's porsche gsm kit - at least it's fully integrated.

My wife uses the Kensington Pico for her iPod Nano in her Boxster. It's an FM transmitter that matches the Nano very well.

In our view, an FM transmitter is a better solution because:

1) Nothing to install in your vehicle, just tune the factory radio to a particular station to pick up the transmitter's signal

2) Works in all of your vehicles, in your shop, in your house, on your boat, and anywhere you have an FM radio, with only a single $50 item to purchase

3) Freedom to place your iPod, while playing, in a concealed place like your armrest or glovebox.

I know there are mixed reviews on FM transmitters, but we live in an area fairly saturated with FM stations, and we have virtually NO issues with static or interference. It even worked perfectly the last time we were in downtown Chicago. Plus, you won't miss any sound quality because a) the MP3s are massively compressed, and therefore aren't much better than a good FM signal anyway, and B) you're in a noisy car to begin with.

The Kensington Pico, and many other FM transmitters, are available on store.apple.com. They even sell versions that are an FM transmitter and an iPod charger (plugs into cigarette lighter) rolled into one.

That's my $0.02!

Had the Parrot ck3100 installed last night, works great, clean setup and cost including installation was $250-yes it automatically downloads your contact list upon connection-great feature.
