Important information on operation and road safety

The PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system is the central control unit for the radio, disc mode (CD/DVD, USB, iPod, and an external audio source), sound settings, on-board computer, navigation system, and telephone. To avoid danger or injury to yourself and others while using your PCM, you must take the following into consideration:

Accident hazard. The distraction could result in you losing control of the vehicle.

  • Operate your PCM only if you are safely in control of your vehicle and when the traffic conditions permit. If in doubt, stop the car and operate the PCM while the vehicle is parked.

Injury hazard. Opening the housing or a damaged housing represents a hazard due to invisible laser radiation.

  • The PCM is a Class 1 laser product. Do not open the housing.
    The PCM does not contain any userserviceable parts. Any maintenance work must be performed exclusively by qualified service personnel.

Accident hazard. The navigation system serves only to assist the driver and provide a suggestion for the route of the journey. This does not release you from complete responsibility for your correct conduct in traffic according to the Road Traffic Regulations or other relevant regulations.

As the driver, you must assess the particular traffic situation. You alone bear the full responsibility for road safety.

  • Continue to pay attention to the traffic situation.

Serious personal injury or death.The telephone must not be used near explosives or flammable materials (e.g. at a gas station) or near operations involving explosives.
Cell phones must be switched off in certain hazardous areas such as near gas stations, fuel depots, chemical plants, and demolition work in progress using explosives, for example. The electric spark from the cell phone could ignite chemical vapors near these hazardous areas, which could result in serious personal injury or death.

  • Follow corresponding instructions.
  • Observe statutory regulations and local restrictions when using the telephone.
