The Parrot 3200 LS Color combines everything we like about previous Parrot devices--including a simple control interface and a great voice recognition system--with a striking color display. The result is an attractive, easy to use aftermarket hands-free calling device.
The Parrot CK3100 combines a simple, easy to use control interface with a good voice-recognition system to provide drivers with easy hands-free calling on the road.

Though we still really like Panasonic's GF series, there are several trade-offs to take into account before you buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2.

The Parrot CK3000 Evolution is a cost-effective, feature-rich hands-free calling system. Its simple design masks some very easy to use options, including a great voice-command interface.
