Smooth flicking menu operation
The interactive touch screen supports flick operation, so you can quickly scroll to another menu page. Sound familiar? Yes, it operates just like a smartphone screen. Plus, feature icons are animated for an enhanced appearance, and can be dragged and dropped into different positions to customise the way you want.
Built-in Parrot Bluetooth
The built-in Parrot Bluetooth provides hands-free telephone communication, with comprehensive compatibility with a variety of mobile phones. With a built-in microphone and Phonebook access, you can safely talk and drive at the same time. Play music stored on your mobile phone with Bluetooth audio streaming.
Simply installing the optional DAB+ receiver module (DAB302E) will give you access to higher quality audio and a wide selection of programming that is available with DAB+ digital radio all controlled via the high-resolution touch panel display.
