Install the Parrot Asteroid receiver in your car, and you’ll be connected to the internet, GPS, telephone, radio, and your mobile device. Main functions are accessible using the jog wheel, but you can also control the unit with voice commands. The Asteroid comes with a GPS dongle, so you can navigate without requiring a separate GPS device. If you supply your own 3G service, you’ll be able to access the internet via Android apps. The unit can connect to your Bluetooth-enabled phone to make calls, and you can connect MP3 players directly to the unit and control playback with voice commands. Connect devices to the Asteroid via Bluetooth, USB, iPod/iPhone cable, or audio cable. There’s much more information on the Parrot website to help you learn if the Asteroid is right for you. The Asteroid will be released later in 2011, and there is no pricing information on the Parrot site yet.
