Installation
WARNING: We advise our customers to have the Parrot MKi9200 fitted by a professional.
Before you begin
Checking the car configuration
 The cables supplied with the kit feature ISO connectors and two pairs of line-out jacks. The lineout jacks can be used if your audio system features this option (use of an amplifier). Several setups are therefore possible depending on the type of car stereo and your vehicle.
 If your car stereo is not fitted with ISO connectors, you need to purchase an ISO adapter cable to
simplify the wiring procedure. Refer to the range of ISO adapters on our website.
Caution
 Unplug the battery before installing the kit’s power cable.
 Before you install the individual components, check that the installation locations have been
selected in such a way that the cable length is sufficient to connect every element.
 Do not install any component (screen, remote control…) in the airbag deployment area.
 Once the installation is complete, make sure that no cables are pinched or trapped.
Removing the car stereo
 Remove your car stereo from you vehicle. You may need release keys to do so.
► Refer to your car stereo user guide or contact your car dealer for more information.
 Remove the audio system from your vehicles dashboard to access the wiring harness.
 The mute function is used to cut the sound of your car stereo to enable a phone call. The choice
of the mute-in jack depends on your car stereo’s configuration.

Parrot MKi9200 – User guide
Installing the kit
Note : If you have the possibility to use a multimeter, test and verify all connections on the vehicle before
connecting the Parrot MKi9200 wiring loom.
Car stereo with ISO connectors
1.
Connect the male connectors of the hands-free kit to the car stereo.
2.
Join the vehicle’s audio and power supply cables to the female connectors of the Parrot MKi9200.
3.
On the installation cable, connect the free yellow wire to one of the audio system’s corresponding
mute-in jacks if available (mute in 1, mute in 2 or mute in 3).
Note : Mute in 1, mute in 2 and mute in 3 are only suggested mute locations. You first have to test and verify
the mute on the vehicle.
5
Parrot MKi9200 – User guide
Car stereo with line-in
 Use this type of connection by wiring the line-out (brown & white wire or red & black wire) to
your car stereo’s line-in.
 Using the two pairs of line-out will enable you to take advantage of the music function in stereo
over your vehicle’s speakers.
 On the installation cable, connect the free yellow wire to the corresponding audio system’s muteinput if available (mute in 1, mute in 2 or mute in 3).
Installing the electronic box
 Avoid installing the electronic box near heating or air-conditioning system, on a spot directly
exposed to sunlight or behind metal walls.
 Make sure the electronic box stays fixed once it is installed and that it will not move while you
are driving.
 Do not reinstall the car stereo forcibly. If you are short of space behind the car stereo to install
the electronic box, consider installing it in the glove box.

Parrot MKi9200 – User guide
Installing the kit’s power cable
Note : In order to check the wiring, connect the screen before placing it on the dashboard.
► Refer to the Checking the wiring section for more information.
 Refer to your car stereo’s wiring diagram.
 The red wire of the kit’s cable must correspond to the constant +12V supply, the orange wire to
the ignition +12V and the black wire to ground. Check that the orange wire is not connected to
the constant +12V supply, as you could run down the vehicle’s battery.
Note : On some vehicles, there is no ignition +12V on the vehicle’s connectors. You must therefore connect the
orange power supply wire to the fuse box or another ignition power source.
Checking the wiring
 To perform the installation check, turn the ignition on then off once the Parrot MKi9200 is
installed: the message “Goodbye!” must be displayed.
 If it is not the case, it is necessary to inverse the positions of the red and orange wires. Indeed,
the red wire of the power cable must be connected to the permanent 12V, the orange wire to
the 12V ignition and the black wire to the ground. This can be done simply by reversing both fuse
holders located on the Parrot wiring.
Installing the audio connectors
Installing the music
cable
Connect the music cable to the electronic box and place the USB / iPod / Jack
connectors into the glove box, the central console or the parcel tray depending on
the configuration of your dashboard. Make sure that the cable is not pinched.
Note : Use the provided protection cap to protect the connectors.
Installing the music
cable grommet system
The music cable grommet system allows you to adjust the cable length
while reducing its wear.
1. Drill a 20 mm hole in your dashboard (glove compartment or parcel tray).
2.
Insert manually two flexible arms of the grommet system.
3.
Use a flat screwdriver in order to insert the last two arms.
> You can now connect your music cable to the bluebox .
