Porsche is delighted to announce an increased range of Porsche Classic models which can be fitted with the Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM and PCCM Plus) units.
Among other features, these retrofitted devices enable the use of Apple CarPlay (from iPhone 5) and Android Auto for media playback, navigation and making phone calls and can now be fitted to 911 (997) and Boxster and Cayman (987) for model years 2005 to 2008, and the first generation Cayenne for model years 2003 to 2008. For the first time, Porsche is also offering specific devices for different regions.
The Porsche models named above were already equipped with a second-generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) in 2 DIN format on request. The new PCCM Plus replaces these original built-in devices perfectly, as well as the CD radio CDR 23 (Cayenne) and the CD radio CDR 24 (Boxster/Cayman). The PCCM Plus integrates seamlessly into its surroundings and the Porsche logo immediately identifies the devices as developed by Porsche. Peripheral components such as an amplifier, speakers or antenna can be used as before. The navigation displays in the instrument cluster also continue to be supported.
The PCCM Plus equipment includes a 7-inch touchscreen with a state-of-the-art graphical display. DAB+ enables the reception of digital radio stations with the European version, while the version for the USA and Canada is programmed for the SiriusXM® satellite radio. The driver is provided with the latest onboard navigation with Points of Interest (POI) specific to Porsche displayed in 2D or 3D. Map updates will be offered for this at regular intervals in the future. Media playback is possible via USB stick, Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay (from iPhone 5) and Android Auto™. Another function is the trip computer which provides lots of useful driving data. In the 911, the Boxster and the Cayman, personal settings for the car can also be stored. Depending on the vehicle equipment, this memory function can be used for the lights, the windscreen wipers, the climate control and the locking.
The new PCCM Plus units cost £1,420.00 RRP inc VAT. The devices and the separately available map material (£135.00 RRP plus VAT for SD card) and fitting takes between 2 - 4 hours depending on the individual car. For more information please find your local Porsche Retail Group Centre here .
