<!-->I have a 2007 Carens CRDi SR with standard factory
radio/CD. This model has no socket or cable for an iPod. I am looking to either
fit a Parrott device or similar (for iPod and Bluetooth/handsfree phone) or
replace the whole radio/cd unit with one that has an iPod socket. Having tried
several places, the Kia Carens does not seem to appear on any compatibility lists,
so no one can tell me if they can fit a Parrott or similar, or even what type
of replacement radio/cd unit would fit! Does anyone have any experience of what
would be compatible?

I put a new head unit in with all the mod cons but the unit doesn't like to run my Ipod grrr. I use a 8mb USB flash drive with all the mp3s I select on it. Its a whole lot cheaper if the car gets broken into and easier to store and no need for extra power supply and cables to keep the ipod boosted.

<!-->Thank you for the replies. I can now say that I have
had a Parrot MKi9200 fitted to my 2007 Kia Carens by Halfords (this is an extra
piece of kit, the original radio/cd remains untouched, so I could always have
the Parrot removed with no damage visible to the car). It did not need any additional
leads as they thought it might and the kit works well. It has plugs for iPod, USB
and jack, so you can attach just about anything to it. It is also a Bluetooth hands-free
system which also works well (although my new Samsung Galaxy S has a Bluetooth issue
and has had to go back for repair, no fault of the Parrot! Works fine with my
old Nokia and my wife's old Motorola Razr). The Kia wiring was apparently very
easy to couple into, so no problems fitting, it was all done in about half an
hour. Can certainly recommend Parrot and Halfords. Total cost including fitting
was just under £200.
