Parrot today introduced its new Android-powered infotainment system, currently known only by its model number, “RNB6,” that features a 7-inch 720p display. The system runs on a custom build of Android Lollipop, and has full support for that operating system’s Android Auto feature, allowing control of your cell phone’s key functions through your dashboard.

Even without a phone connected, the system offers onboard navigation (integrated with the dashcam), phone call capability (presumably over Bluetooth unless connected via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay), vehicle diagnostics, music and climate control, and more.

The usual Parrot audio features are also included, such as the ability to customize the system’s audio playback to provide optimal sound for the number of passengers and their locations in the car.

Unfortunately, shoppers looking to get their hands on one will have to wait a little longer for details such as availability and pricing. That information will be made available later this year.

Parrot also announced several other products, including new drones, the sensor-laden Zik Sport fitness headband, and the Parrot Pot smart flowerpot. You can read more about all of the products here.
