I stopped at a local car accessories store that is an authorized Parrot installer and was told they only have the cable for the MK9xxx series. I'd rather pay $50 to an installer than pay $50 for a one-time use of the cable.

Anyone purchase the update cable inexpensively?
Two cautions here:
1. The guys I bought my parrot from - the company name escapes me at this moment - told me that even with the upgrade cable, they only had one guy in theor shop who could sucessfully upgrade the firmware. I guess its a little bit tricky.
2. the ck3000 hardware has been updated. I referenced somebody to this link below for the mic mod & his ck3000 board did not match. That may mean that the latest firmware may not be for your version od hardware.
