Parrot hands-free wings its way to your motor

The iTrip’s so yesterday. Now all our music’s crammed onto our mobile we’ve been looking for something else to pipe our tunes to our car stereo – and now we’ve found it.The MK6000 is the first Bluetooth car kit with stereo Bluetooth capabilities. Once wired into the head unit it’ll access your phone’s MP3s and stream them through the car speakers. Handy controls take care of track selection while a new text-to-speech function reads out your playlist.When it comes to calls it does a mean job reading out names from your phone book, and being a wired system it’ll cut the music while the twin microphones get to work eradicating unwanted background noise.Standard voice commands are all there for picking up calls, checking voicemail and dialling out.Sounds like the perfect way to avoid pesky motoring fines, especially as they’re soon to come with a lovely three penalty points bonus. Smashing.
