Vehicle Electronics: Bluetooth MKI9100 – Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit
Car Care Tips And Tricks
Bluetooth enables voice, data and music to be sent via a short-distance radio link. It connects a wide range of electronic equipment without requiring additional cables. And, it extends the communications possibilities for cell phones and a large number of devices. The Bluetooth stereo (A2DP) profile uses the same radio frequencies and allows the sending of music files from one device to another.
Phone & Device Compatibility
Parrot products are 100% Bluetooth compatible and compatible with virtually every Bluetooth-enabled cell phone, smartphone, PDA and iPhone(TM). If you like, you can visit their website to confirm that your mobile phone is compatible: www.parrot.com.
The MKI9100 is one of a new series of Parrot car kits that offer a higher level of technology and peformance. It features user independent voice recognition and voice synthesis (text-to-speech), combined with wireless remote control and exceptional connectivity for iPod(R), MP3 and other music sources. Installed in your vehicle, it provides advanced hands-free performance and control of your favourite digital music.
More Hands-Free Advantages
Phone book contacts, calling information and music playback information are displayed on the dash-mounted OLED screen – which detaches for theft prevention. You control the MKI9100 phone and music functions, and the information that appears on the screen, with a wireless remote that can be mounted on the steering wheel or wherever you like in your vehicle.
Digital Music Convenience
Your MP3 paly list comes alive with the amazing connectivity of the MKI9100. You can stream music from your phone or other Bluetooth stereo (A2DP) device or use the iPod(R)/iPhone(TM) and USB direct connection. A 3.5mm input jack lets you plug in other music players. However you connect, the MKI9100 has a built-in digital 20-watt amplifier to give your music a boost in power and fidelity.
The Parrot MKI9100 is designed to install seamlessly in any vehicle. If desired, the remote control function can be interfaced with your vehicle’s original equipment steering wheel audio controls using an optional available Parrot accessory harness. And, like Parrot hands-free Bluetooth car kits, the software in an MKI9100 can be updated from the Parrot website.

Info On South Australian Public Holidays At Your Fingertips Anywhere, Anytime
Car Care Tips And Tricks
Traditionally, workers, public or private, were entitled to take off a public holiday with regular pay. In recent years this tradition has changed somewhat. For example, businesses that are normally open on a public holiday may request employees to work on the day, and refusal can only be denied by the employer on reasonable business grounds.
The entitlement to penalty rates was eliminated entirely in many workplaces under WorkChoices; however since the implementation of the Fair Work Act 2009 and the modern awards in 2010, most public holiday penalty rates have increased dramatically. Currently, employees are generally paid at a penalty rate – usually 2.5 times (known as “double time and a half”) the base rate of pay.
Besides designating days as public holidays, some of these days are also designated as restricted trading days.
Public holidays are determined by a combination of:
Statutes, with specific gazetting of public holidays; and
Industrial awards and agreements.
If a standard public holiday falls on a weekend, a substitute public holiday will sometimes be observed on the first non-weekend day (usually Monday) after the weekend, whether by virtue of the public holiday legislation or by ad hoc proclamation. If a worker is required to work on a public holiday or substituted public holiday, they will usually be entitled to be paid at a holiday penalty rate.
All states have their own public holidays in addition to national public holidays, and in some states public holidays are provided on a local basis, such as Adelaide Cup Day.
Alcohol licenses in many states prevent sale of alcohol on certain public holidays, such as Good Friday.
Everyone loves a good public holiday / long weekend and to make it easier for you to plan your next big break we have put together a list of the major South Australian public holidays in our Events App. The Events App is now available as part of the Auto Advisor Mobile App.
