It has happended to all of us: You're crusing along, favourite tunes playing, feeling good looking cool, when you need to change track but can't read your tiny iPod screen as you're driving along. Well, that will soon be just a bad a memory akin to listening to scratched records and jumping needles. In November, Parrot launches its Rhythm N'Blue CD/MP3/Bluetooth receiver, which allows your iPod to play through your car’s speakers with all the information about what you're listening to being displayed on the bigger radio screen that can be read easily at a glance. Victor Harris, sales manager Middle East of NSV Automative Group, Parrot's exclusive retailer in the region, said: "I've been in the motor industry for more than 10 years, and this is the biggest innovation in the car radio that I've seen." "Basically it has the same phone functions that a Series 7 BMW gives you: whole phone book, synchronizes with radio, mutes radio when a call comes in, hands free.. but all in a radio,' he says. It displays in big letters who you are listening to, has scroll through tracks and even works with new iPods including the Nano. It also charges and sits in a cradle, he says. Grinning he showed the slogan: "Let your car share your iPod and she will love it." With the Parot Rhythm N'Blue, drivers can listen to CDs, a radio station or their own MP3 recording plus make and receive phone calls. Thanks to its design and backlit buttons, the use of these features quickly becomes second nature. Seven backlit colours are available. The keypad controls the phone dialling and messaging functions, and provides preset radio station selection as well.
