Go to this thread on the Asteroid Doisara forums
. If you create an account there then you can download the correct versions as attachments of the original post.

Are you able to give me some ideas on usage scenarios? Thanks.
I only started using it myself. However, it can integrate with Tasker and that alone gives it the to ability to perform much more than what Google Voice Search can do.

Did somebody find a way to sideload apps to the Volvo Sensus Connected Touch system? it is based on Parrot Asterroid, but with an extremly limited subset of apps in the market.
That's because nobody with a Volvo Sensus Connected Touch (SCT) has found a way. It is true that the SCT is made by Parrot but there is no indication that it is related to the Asteroid Smart. It might be closer to the Asteroid Mini and Tablet since neither of those have a mini-USB port with the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) either. Besides the form factor of the SCT's "remote e-box" seems to suggest it as well.
I suspect that the only way to install third-party apps other than the Asteroid Market, is if the ability were added to a modified ROM. Parrot uses .plf files to update their hardware. You can see the instructions on how to do it here; http://www.parrot.com/uk/support/sensus-connected-touch
. Apparently, they made it so that only SCT owners can download the .plf files through the Asteroid Market. If you have one, then sharing this file would go a long way in aiding to this movement.
