Porsche Boxster S - Mobile phone / Bluetooth® connection

Mobile phone / Bluetooth® connection

The optional quadband GSM telephone module offers convenience and excellent reception. By inserting a SIM card directly into the integral SIM card reader of CDR Plus or PCM, calls can be made using the hands-free facility. For even more convenience, the Bluetooth® capability of a mobile phone can be used to make calls via the SIM Access Profile (SAP). Once automatic pairing is complete, the mobile phone’s aerial is switched off to conserve battery charge and the phone operates via the car aerial. Depending on the mobile phone model, this gives access not only to the numbers on the SIM card, but also to the phone’s internal memory. Depending on the phone, it can also be controlled using CDR Plus or PCM, the optional multifunction steering wheel or the optional voice control system, without it ever leaving your pocket.

The telephone module also enables you to establish a Bluetooth® link with those mobile phones that only support the Handsfree Profile (HFP). In this case, the GSM connection is always established through the aerial of the mobile phone. CDR Plus or PCM acts as a hands-free system and you can leave the mobile phone tucked away.

There is a Bluetooth® handset available on request for the telephone module. It is stored in the centre console and features a display and keypad.

Bluetooth® mobile phone connection is also available separately with mobile phone preparation.

* The use of a mobile phone or telephone module in HFP mode: the use of a mobile phone inside a car may cause an increase in the interior electromagnetic field strength and, accordingly, in the electromagnetic radiation to which passengers are exposed. If a cradle is used to mount the mobile phone, the field strength in the passenger compartment can be reduced because the phone can be connected up to the external aerial (feature depends on how specific mobile phones connect to the cradle). For information about the availability of an upgrade kit for your mobile phone, please contact your accessories supplier. The use of the telephone module for CDR Plus and/or PCM via a Bluetooth® SAP connection or with inserted SIM card prevents exposure to electromagnetic radiation as only the car’s external aerial is ever used. Information on compatible mobile phones can be obtained from www.porsche.com or from your Porsche Centre.
