I hope the following will help anyone having problems with Parrot Bluetooth kits.

My iPhone could see the car kit but when it tried to pair it failed with "Cannot pair with Parrot CK3100".

I tried over a few days and no matter what it would not pair.
After another shot i deleted all other phones that had been paired to the car kit and then paired the iPhone first time.
It automatically transferred my contacts and syncs without prompting.
Also the voice dial from the kit works perfectly.

Thought i would post this in case anyone else has the same problem.

Does your ck3100 auto-answer without having to touch anything on the iPhone or the car kit?

i was just wondering, i seem to have a problem in that i can pair my iPhone with my parrot ck3100 and it all works fine, but if i leave the car or turn off the ignition so the parrot turns off, when i get in the car again, my iPhone wont sync up with it unless i unpair it and pair it again. Is there no way to set the bluetooth on the phone to allow the connection automatically?

I would say it is the way your parrot kit has been wired. Make sure you have the 12v line connected to a perminent supply. I think it sounds like your 12v and ignition wires are both connected to the ignition supply. This would mean when the vehicle is switched off it will forget all the settings and you would have to pair again. Let me know how you get on.

Thanks for replying. I don't think that is the problem as i have used my car kit with many other nokia phones that pair automatically. Its almost as if my iPhone wont automatically connect. Is there some setting that dictates whether you can authorise the connection automatically on the iPhone or is it a standard thing that will connect anyway? Why cant these companys make things easy for a change?

Deleting paired devices

Thanks for posting this. I also had problems pairing my iPhone 3GS with the Parrot CK3100. As mentioned above, I deleted all previous paired phones and was then able to pair the iPhone.

I would also point out how to delete paired devices, as it took me a while to figure out. Go to Settings, Advanced Settings, Paired Devices. Find a device you want to delete like "Blackberry XYZ." Click on it and scroll down to <delete>.

Also, I wish I could update my Parrot firmware but Mac is not supported! For shame, Parrot.

Also Also, super lame that basic functions like "pair" are found in "advanced settings." Sounds pretty common to me, not advanced. Very awful Nokia-ish user flow.

Hi There You Can Visit Australian Car Kit Specialists www.auscarkits.com.au

Hi There To All,

I Had My Car Kit Installed By Holden & Was Charged $599 For The Ck3000
Had Nothing But Problems & Was Not Even Connected Through My Audio System...

They Came Back To Install The Parrot 3200Ls And At The Same Time I Had A Technician From
Australian Car Kit Specialists Come Out To See If The Job Was To Be Up To Standard...
To My Surprise The Technician That Holden Had Sent Out Refused To Do The Job Properly And Left The Car Kit In It's Box... He Was In A Rush To Get Out Of Here...

In The End I Had The Job Proffesionally Done By Australian Car Kit Specialists... When I Make A Call Or Receive A Call My Music Stops & The Audio Comes Through My Car Speakers...

I Have Had My New Car & Car Kit For Over 4 Months & Everything Works Well...

Why Is It Dealers Always Overcharge & Tell You Things Are Factory Fitted If It Is An Atermarket Upgrade?

If You Have Any Questions Or Need Any Help I Am Sure You Can Visit www.auscarkits.com.au

Thanks Guys

Brilliant advice- worked perfectly for me! I was pullong my hair out as the iPhone had paired with my sat nav and the sound was awful whereas with parrot I'm now back using speakers!
