Car Telephone and Aftermarket Alarms
Important legal and safety information regarding the use of cellular telephones
Some states may prohibit the use of cellular telephones while driving a vehicle. Check the laws and regulations on the use of cellular telephones in the areas where you drive.
Cell Phone Use
Looking away from the road or turning your attention away from your driving to operate a cell phone will sooner or later cause an accident.
It is essential to observe the telephone manufacturer's instructions before operating the telephone.
Any portable telephone or radio transmitter which is used in a Porsche must be properly installed in accordance with the technical requirements of Porsche.
The transmission power must not exceed 10 W.
The devices must possess a type approval for your vehicle and have an "e" symbol.
If you should require equipment with transmission power values greater than 10 W, please consult your authorized Porsche dealer for this purpose.
They are familiar with the technical requirements for installing devices of this kind.
The antennas for all radios and telephones with a transmitting antenna must be externally mounted.
The improper installation of radios or telephones or use of a radio or telephone with a transmitting antenna inside the car may cause the warning lights to come on.
Improper installation of such equipment can create a discharged battery or excessive current draw from added equipment.
If aftermarket systems are installed by non-dealership technicians or outside the selling dealer, problems may result. Installation of aftermarket equipment is not covered under the New Car Warranty.
The reception quality of your car telephone will change constantly when you are driving. Interference caused by buildings, landscape and weather is unavoidable. It may become particularly difficult to hear when using the hands-free function due to external noise such as engine and wind noise.

Operation of On-Board Systems
Setting or operating the on-board computer, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving could distract you from the traffic. You could lose control of the vehicle.
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/winter 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.
