You can use the stopwatch to measure time intervals, e.g. on the race circuit or on work-related journeys. Measured lap times can be stored and evaluated if the vehicle is equipped with Porsche Communication Management (PCM).

  • Please observe the chapter "Sport display" in the separate PCM operating instructions.

Stopwatch on the instrument panel
The stopwatch has an analogue and a digital display.

The large pointer of the analogue display measures the seconds. The two small pointers measure hours and minutes. The display re-starts at zero after 12 hours.

Seconds and increments of 1/100th of a second can be read on the digital display.

The digital display and the display in the on-board computer can indicate up to 99 hours and 59 minutes.

The stopwatch can be swivelled both to the left and to the right.

Stopwatch displays:
– on the stopwatch on the instrument panel,
– in the on-board computer menu CHRONO,
– on the performance display in the PCM.

Starting/stopping stopwatch
All stopwatch displays are started and stopped via the on-board computer menu CHRONO.

Note on operation
When you leave the CHRONO menu while the stopwatch is running, measurement will continue.

The stopwatch stops after the ignition is switched off. If the ignition is switched on again within approx. 4 minutes, the stopwatch will continue to run.

The only way to reset the stopwatch to zero is by selecting "Reset" in the CHRONO menu.
