I think the main problem people would have today, is that Google deprecated the "Gingerbread" version of Android that our Asteroid Smart uses, in Google Play Services version 10.2.0.
The final version of Google Play Services that would work on a (rooted) Asteroid Smart would be version 10.0.1, from November 2016.
So pretty much zero Android apps newer than February 2017 will be compatible. I expect that would hold true for Waze, and for Google Maps, and for the Google Playstore itself (ie. the current version of the old "Android Market" which was recommended to be installed in the rooting instructions earlier in this thread, and also archived at http://asteroid.doisara.com/rooting-...android-market
We have two Asteroid Smarts in our family (oh joy!), both of them rooted. For navigation software, one runs TomTom ver. 1.3 that we bought years ago from the Asteroid Market (subsequently withdrawn for sale by Parrot), and one runs "Offline Maps" ver 1.1.19 for Android, with the .apk side loaded into the Asteroid Smart.
You can still find the .apk for Offline Maps around, but once you get it installed I don't know whether it will still download local maps because of the Google Play Services problem. Also, I believe the maps for this old app were taken from OpenStreetMap in 2015, but they were then coded in a proprietary format for the app that uses .bmd and .bmi files for the maps. So if you can't get the app to download the .bmd file, then you are kind of stuck unless you know someone already using the app who will share copies of the .bmd and .bmi files for the areas that you want to use. The newer versions of this app require the newer versions of Google Play Services that deprecate Gingerbread, so you're kind of stuck on that front too. But if you do try Offline Maps, please post back whether you were able to get any local maps downloaded.
Pretty sure the Asteroid Smart has a locked bootloader, so there is no realistic possibility of updating the operating system to a newer version of Android.
If this all really bugs you, there are other options now that didn't really exist back in 2013 when the Asteroid Smart was first around. There's a forum here at XDA devoted to it: https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...oid-head-units
I'm probably sticking with the Parrot for a while yet. It mostly still does what I bought it for.

Now I want to find a way to upload the android version to the last one. I know that I will have to consider if the hardware can handle it and if the programming is easy for me who only programmed in the university 10 years ago.
Does anyone find out a solution for this old parrot? or maybe know how to help me to update the android version?
