Multi-Functional Steering Wheel

Distraction from Steering Wheel Functions

Setting or operating the on-board computer, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving could distract you from the traffic. You could lose control of the vehicle resulting in serious personal injury or death.

  • Operate the components while driving only if the traffic situation allows you to do so safely.
  • Carry out any complicated operating or setting procedures only with the vehicle stationary.

Depending on the equipment in your vehicle, you can use the function keys of the multi-functional steering wheel to operate the following Porsche communication systems:
– PCM
– Telephone
– Radio with CD-Drive
– CD-Audio
