The geeks over at Gadgetsteria (PDF) have found and posted up a press release from Parrot that shows a really cool car stereo that is powered by Android. The radio has a bunch of really cool features with things like an included GPS dongle and the ability to connect to your own 3G dongle for data access.
That access to data allows the Asteroid to provide the driver with access to Parrot Maps and details on traffic and construction alerts. The device can also connect to all sorts of media like USBstick, SD card, iPhone and iPods plus a lot more.
The Asteroid also supports Bluetooth streaming for music and for making calls. One of the coolest features is a voice search capability for music. The thing sounds a bit like Sync on Ford cars to me and is has a 3.2-inch screen. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
