New Product – ProCatt – Catalytic Converter Alarm

Chameleon are pleased to welcome the ProCatt Catalytic Converter alarm system to our portfolio of products. The alarm detects frequencies through the exhaust pipe via 2 sensors and will trigger the horn & indicators of the vehicle should the Cat be tampered with. As we all know Catalytic Converters have become a high theft item due to the precious metals they contain and they can fetch £50-200 each for scrap value.

Android handset not transferring phone book to car kit…

If you are using an android type handset and find the phone book doesn’t transfer to your car kit please check the following:
When the phone is first paired and connected to the car kit you may have got a ‘Notification’ at the top of the screen of your phone. Usually you can ‘drag’ down the notification area and it may say that the car kit is requesting access to the phone book which you need to ‘OK’. Once this is done it should be fine from then on. I have had several calls about this and it nearly caught me out on my own one!

If you can’t find the notification please try deleting the pairing and re pairing again.

Switch on the ignition of the vehicle (Please note this procedure should be done within 30 seconds of powering on the kit), wait for the graphic equaliser picture and the word ‘Parrot’ to disappear as soon as the car kit shows it’s standard standby display (See Below)


Then press & hold The Red, Green & Play buttons on the remote control:


You should see a message similar to ‘Remote Pairing’ on the display once this has gone it should work fine!

Parrot CK3100 Blank Screen (Display) and Bleeping

If you have a CK3100 and you are finding the display has gone blank (possibly still illuminating) and giving you ‘Bleeps’ when the ignition is switched on then there this is a sign of lost communication from the Blue junction box of the Parrot and the display, quite often this is caused by the display cable having a little ‘tug’ and slightly pulling apart a connector in the rear of the display. With a small flat screwdriver you can usually (Carefully) push the connector back together please see the picture below:

Ensure the White Connector is fully home.

Parrot / Bury Kit Missing Numbers From Phonebook?

If you have a Parrot kit with a display or a Bury CC-9060 / CV-9040 and you find the kit lists some phone numbers in the phonebook but they don’t have a number attached to them the main reason is often because you have a ‘Contact’ picture attached to that person. A contact picture is a photo that shows on your phone screen when that person calls you. This will need to be removed and then delete your phone from the car kit and then do a new bluetooth search and connect back up. This cures 90% of problems! Any problems email us technicalATthechameleongroup.co.uk with as much info as possible (Car kit & handset model, software versions if possible)
