The central control system for all information and communication functions, PCM is powerful and versatile, yet easy to use. The high-resolution touchscreen display is operated via the graphic interface or using the rotary push-button controls. The radio has an FM twin tuner with RDS frequency diversity, which continuously searches the airwaves for the best possible signal from the selected radio station. On the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the touchscreen and instrument cluster also display hybrid-specific information, e.g. charge situation, charge status and performance.
The CD/DVD drive plays CDs and audio DVDs and is MP3-compatible. The standard navigation module with high-speed hard drive offers a conventional 2D layout as well as a perspective view. In some regions, the topography can also be displayed in 3D. In addition, the system indicates the respective speed limit for the roads covered in the navigation database via PCM or the colour display in the instrument cluster. In conjunction with the optional online services, online destinations can also be easily imported into the navigation system. PCM also features a universal audio interface with a USB port.
This option enables you to receive digitally broadcast radio channels in DAB, DAB+ and DMB Audio format with significantly enhanced sound quality.* The system automatically switches between digital and analogue to ensure optimum reception of the selected channel.
The online services give you the option of accessing a variety of content from the internet via PCM. Data is transferred to PCM via a smartphone app (Aha Radio app). The app is available free of charge from iTunes® (for iPhones®) and Google Play® (for Android® devices). Online services include web radio, news feeds, podcasts, audio magazines and Facebook® as well as weather information. The results of an online Points of Interest search can be imported into PCM as a navigation destination. To use the online services, you will require either the universal audio interface (for iPhones®) or the mobile phone preparation (for Android® devices).
The TV tuner receives unencrypted analogue and digital television signals.** For your safety, these can only be viewed via the PCM display when the vehicle is stationary. In conjunction with Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment, the rear screens are also able to display a TV picture even while the vehicle is in motion.
* Reception subject to local digital network coverage.
** Suitable for receiving analogue and digital TV signals (DVB-T in MPEG-2 standard) where available.
