It is essential to observe the telephone manufacturer's instructions before operating the telephone.
Any portable telephone or radio transmitter which is used in a Porsche must be properly installed in accordance with the technical requirements of Porsche.

The transmission power must not exceed 10 W.
The devices must possess a type approval for your vehicle and have an "e" symbol.

If you should require equipment with transmission power values greater than 10 W, please consult your authorized Porsche dealer for this purpose.

They are familiar with the technical requirements for installing devices of this kind.

The antennas for all radios and telephones with a transmitting antenna must be externally mounted. The improper installation of radios or telephones or use of a radio or telephone with a transmitting antenna inside the car may cause the warning lights to come on.

Improper installation of such equipment can create a discharged battery or excessive current draw from added equipment.

If aftermarket systems are installed by nondealership technicians or outside the selling dealer, problems may result. Installation of aftermarket equipment is not covered under the New Car Warranty.

  • Consult your authorized Porsche dealer about the installation of non-Porsche approved equipment.

Reception quality
The reception quality of your car telephone will change constantly when you are driving.

Interference caused by buildings, landscape and weather is unavoidable. It may become particularly difficult to hear when using the hands-free function due to external noise such as engine and wind noise.

Automatic car-wash

  • Unscrew external antennas before using an automatic car-wash.

Porsche Communication Management (PCM)

Operation of On-Board Systems

Setting or operating the multi-function display, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving could distract you from the traffic. You could lose control of the vehicle.

  • 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.
  • If it is necessary to operate these components while the vehicle is in motion, use the function keys on the multi-functional steering wheel.

  • Refer to the separate operating instructions before putting the PCM into operation.

When put into operation for the first time, a distance of approx. 3 miles (5 km) must be driven in order for the navigation system to complete the process of fine calibration. The same applies when the tires are changed (e.g. summer/winter tires) or new tires fitted. Full location accuracy is not yet achieved during the fine-calibration process.

If the vehicle has been transported (e.g. ferry, car train), the system may take a few minutes after being switched on before it determines the current location.
