    Congrats. Details on mine are here: Parrot Asteroid SMART 2DIN Head Unit

    P.S. RHD, but 9 celcius. Not Hong Kong...
    P.P.S. If you've got OVMS, you're really gonna like what's coming next for the Parrot Asteroid :)

    I don't have OVMS yet. I only got mine installed yesterday. It is *so* much better than the old Pioneer system.

    I suspect a lot of roadsters are going to get this.

    Stock is ok, but limited in available apps (primarily navigation).

    I did quite a bit of work on mine. I do suggest you get the installer to lay a USB cable from the laptop port on the back of the parrot to somewhere in the car where you can plugin a laptop to jailbreak/root/sideload if you decide to. I put mine just below the fuse box.
