View Full Version : Appradio 3 or Parrot SMART ? ~$500 headunits

07-17-2013, 10:37 PM
I purchased a 2014 Mustang GT and need to upgrade the base stereo. At first I decided on a Pioneer 3500BT but I figured I should get something nicer so I was thinking the Appradio 3 or Parrot SMART... does anyone have experience with these headunits??

I think I would rather get the Appradio over the Parrot but I wanted to know if I can use a USB thumbdrive or harddrive with it? It says it has 1 USB rear out but I'm not sure if it's compatable with mass storage devices?

I love the Parrot's idea however the fact it takes 20 seconds to load up, does not recall where you left off, and it's various bugs has me discouraged.

If anyone has suggestions on these products or any others I would greatly appreciate it!!

Tuned in hoping for answers. I liked the idea of the Parrot, but couldn't really find enough info to take the chance. Glad I didn't if it's buggy and can't remember your place. It is a great idea though I'd love to see it refined with some good audio processing features.
