Porsche Communication Management (PCM)

The optional PCM is your central information and communication system. It is powerful and multifunctional, yet easy to operate.

The main feature is the intuitive 7-inch touchscreen. The CD/DVD drive is MP3 compatible. A six-disc CD/DVD autochanger integrated in the PCM is available as an option.With the universal audio interface in the glove compartment you can store up to 5,000 MP3 music files on the 40-GB internal hard drive. Alternatively, you can connect and even charge your iPod® or any other audio source. The device can be operated conveniently and safely via PCM, the optional multifunction steering wheel or the optional voice control system. The USB socket can also be used to download data from the performance display of the Sport Chrono Package, as well as data from the electronic logbook.

The navigation module of PCM with high-speed hard drive allows you to choose between a 2D display and a 3D perspective. In some regions, terrain as well as buildings can be displayed in 3D with satellite image overlay. Split screen mode enables you to view two functions at once, such as the current navigation map and a list of symbols that represent the next navigation instruction. The navigation module calculates the routes dynamically in response to official traffic messages (TMC) and information from traffic flow sensors (TMC Pro*).

Electronic logbook

An electronic logbook is available for PCM as an option. The automatically recorded data can be analysed on your home PC. The software supplied fulfils all statutory requirements for automatic logbooks as specified by the German revenue authorities.

TV tuner**

The optional TV tuner for PCM is capable of receiving unencrypted analogue and digital television broadcasts (DVB-T) to provide entertainment between journeys. For your safety, the TV picture is switched off while the car is in motion.

Voice control system

You like to tell it straight. Almost all of the functions of PCM can be controlled using the optional voice control system with word-by-word input.

Online services.***

With the free-to-download Aha Radio app, you can access radio, news feeds, podcasts and audiobooks directly with PCM. It is also possible to call up local information such as the weather. Point of Interest searches with subsequent direct selection as your navigation destination are also supported. Online content is received by your smartphone and controlled by means of PCM.

Digital radio.***

Digital radio broadcasts in the DAB, DAB+ and DMB audio formats, which offer far superior sound quality. Automatic changeover between digital and analogue ensures optimum reception of the selected station. Reception is dependent on local digital network availability.
