Washington, Jan 8 (ANI): A new smart car radio called Parrot's Asteroid lets drivers make calls, find music with voice activation, and connects to GPS or the Internet - all in one.

You can play music from a number of music players or phones, a USB, or an SD card that slides in behind the faceplate of the Android OS-operating radio.

It contains an amplifier and equalizer, but also contains outputs for a 6xRCA preamp and a subwoofer, reports Discovery News.

So if you are driving and you want an MJ track, just say the name and the Asteroid will find the song. If there's a 3G connection, the player can also stream radio from online.

It also automatically synchronizes to the phone book and saved voice-recognition settings of a mobile device the first time it connects via Bluetooth.

The Asteroid is expected in the market by the end of March, in Europe, with a U.S. version to follow in the next quarter. (ANI)
