Vehicles with PDK
Downshifts are carried out to help maintain the pre-selected speed (especially when driving downhill).
Interrupting cruise control operation – OFF
The speed driven before the interruption remains stored in the memory and can be reactivated by pressing the control stalk.
Please see the chapter "RESUMING THE STORED SPEED – RESUME" on page 147.
Press the control stalk down (position 3). or
Operate brake pedal or Move PDK selector lever to N position.
Cruise control operation is interrupted
– If the set vehicle speed is exceeded by more than approx. 16 mph (25 km/h) for longer than 20 seconds.
– If the actual vehicle speed falls below the set vehicle speed by approx. 37 mph (60 km/h) for longer than 60 seconds
– If Porsche Stability Management (PSM) intervenes for longer than 0.5 seconds.
Resuming the stored speed – RESUME
Press the control stalk up (position 4).
Cruise control accelerates/decelerates the vehicle to the stored speed.
The stored speed should only be recalled if traffic and road conditions are conducive to driving at that speed.
Switching cruise control readiness off
Press button A on the control stalk.
The memory is cleared and the readiness symbol disappears.
The stored desired speed is cleared when the ignition is switched off when the vehicle is parked.
On upward or downward slopes, the set speed cannot always be maintained by cruise control (vehicles with manual transmission).
To obtain sufficient engine braking or a better rev range, you therefore have to change down to a lower gear.
Car Audio Operation/Tips For radio operation see your radio manual which is included with your on-board literature.
A vehicle is not an ideal place to listen to a radio. Because the vehicle moves, reception conditions are constantly changing.
Buildings, terrain, signal distance and noise from other vehicles are all working against good reception.
Some conditions affecting FM may appear to be problems when they are not.
The following characteristics are completely normal for a given reception area, and they do not indicate any problem with the radio itself.
Electronic accessories should only be installed by your authorized Porsche dealer.
Equipment which has not been tested and approved by Porsche may impair radio reception.
