Porsche Communication Management (PCM)

Operation of on-board systems
Setting or operating the multi-function display, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving could distract you from the traffic. You could lose control of the vehicle.

  • Operate the components while driving only if the traffic situation allows you to do so safely.
  • Carry out any complicated operating or setting procedures only with the vehicle stationary.
  • If it is necessary to operate these components while the vehicle is in motion, use the function keys on the multi-functional steering wheel.

  • Refer to the separate operating instructions before putting the PCM into operation.

When put into operation for the first time, a distance of approx. 3 miles (5 km) must be driven in order for the navigation system to complete the process of fine calibration. The same applies when the tires are changed (e.g. summer/snow tires) or new tires fitted. Full location accuracy is not yet achieved during the fine-calibration process.

If the vehicle has been transported (e.g. ferry, car train), the system may take a few minutes after being switched on before it determines the current location.

Serious tire slip (e.g. spinning wheels on snow) may result in temporarily inaccurate navigation. When the battery has been disconnected, it may take up to 15 minutes before the navigation system is operational once more.

Satellite radio
You must have the satellite radio activated before you can put it into operation. You will need a contract with a provider in order to use this radio.

  • Refer to the separate radio operating instructions before putting into operation.

USB/iPod® and AUX
The USB/iPod® and AUX interfaces are located in the glove box.

  • Please refer to the chapter "EXTERNAL AUDIO SOURCE" in the separate PCM operating instructions.

Do not leave your iPod®, USB storage device or an external audio source in the vehicle for extended periods of time because extreme ambient conditions (temperature fluctuations, humidity) can occur in the vehicle.
