Hi Folks. Just treated myself to a golf and joined this forum. Now I need to fit the parrot 3100 bluetooth unit my folks got me. I know the car is ISO so things should be pretty simple but is there anything I need to keep in the front of my mind?

Someone mentioned to me that I may have to alter the inline fuse?

Any hints or tips greatly appreciated

Funnly enough I'm just about to do the exact same thing on my new 2003 Bora.

I've already mounted the LCD screen on a blank button cover. (i'll post picks soon). I've got a PDF (parrot internal one by the looks of it) at home for installing it as the instructions that come with the kit are cack. Mind you the kit I bought is supposedly designed for professional installers to install, so I'll probably balls it up.

PM, with you e-mail address and I'll send you a link to the PDF.

Cheers

Great minds must think alike.

That's exactly where I've decided to mount my LCD. perfect for vision and arm reach. Where are you going to put the mic? I'm aiming for the top right of the windscreen but a few friends have mounted tgheirs just above the rear view mirror so that the passanger could talk too.

So thats the visual bit sorted anyone got any tips on the wiring?

will PM my email address.

Cheers..

ps.Pic's are very help full. Thanks a lot.

I've just fitted one of these into a Leon. I mounted the blue box up behind the glove box so the ISO wiring looms can pass straight to the back of the stereo, the display I put over one of the central dash buttons, and the mike I mounted at the top of the A pillar and ran the wire down behind the A pillar cover, along the bottom of the steering column and up to the blue box.

On the Golf theres not so much room behind the stereo so you might have trouble finding room for the mute box. The Leons dash is the same as an Audi A3 and easier to work with than the Golf.

If you lay it all out on the floor you might get an idea of where to mount each part, the wiring is easy, its figuring out where to put everything that takes the time!

Oh and the inline fuses should be the right way round to connect to the standard VW ISO connector.

You'll either need a multimeter to find out which is the switched ignition feed or just take your key out of the ignition when its all fitted and the Parrot should say goodbye on the screen.

Pull off your gear gaitor and run all the cables and put the blue box
to the side of the gear stick

All you r ISO connectors sit below the stereo on top of A/C controller
or on top of heater controls. job
done.....

Pull glove box out NO WAY.......No need to do this

Just finished my install. I did what J40hnw suggested and placed the box underneath the transmission/gear tunnel cover. Must say the wiring was a piece of piss. Didn't even refer to the PDF manual, everything was plug and play !!!

I also noticed on the parrot website that they released a firmware upgrade on the 7th of Dec so that went on as well. So long as you've got bluetooth on your laptop everything is pretty easy.

Just incase the PDFs are needed see links below

As an off chance I did a search on here for the Parrot CK3100.

I'm going to order this week and it shouldn't be a major problem as I've fitted a few car kits and stereos in my time, but the advice here is very handy! [:D]

Thanks in advance

I've had my CK3100 fitted for a while now but can someone answer some questions about it please.

Sometimes when I turn the ignition on I get about 10 fast beeps in a row, anyone know why?
If you put in a number through 'dial number' and its engaged is there any way to redial it without putting it in again? It doesnt go into the call register.

These are my only two niggles with it though. I turned the womans voice off to start with but now its back on.

Thanks,
Rick.

j40hnw,

Thanks for your advice, the car kit was fitting in under an hour. It would have been quicker, but there were issues with the wiring for the CD player! [:O]

auroan,

Thanks for the pictures of the display, as I've installed the display in the same place.

Cheers guys, much appreciated! [:D]

Old thread I know, but can anyone repost the pics/pdf as I'm trying to fit the same kit to a 2002 MKIV with the 6 disc CD changer.

Cheers,
Nate

I aint got any pics but when mine was fitted i asked for the microphone to be mounted next to the interior light rather than the drivers window on the A pillar, this way if i was driving with the window open the mic wouldnt pick up as much road/wind noise. All the wiring is still hidden really well.

I'll try and get some pics up a.s.a.p mate.

Just something to bear in mind.
