Important information for users

The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is the central control unit for the radio, TV tuner, media, sound settings, navigation, and phone.

The following safety notes must be observed to ensure no one is put in danger or harmed when using the PCM:

Risk of accidents
Using the PCM can distract you from the traffic.

  • Only operate the PCM if the traffic situation allows. If in doubt, stop in a safe place and operate the PCM while the vehicle is stationary.
  • Select appropriate volume settings to ensure that acoustic signals from outside the vehicle, such as emergency vehicle sirens (e.g. police, ambulance), are easily audible at all times.

Risk of accidents
When braking, rapidly accelerating, changing direction, or in the event of an accident, unsecured or incorrectly positioned devices may slip and endanger the occupants.

  • Ensure all objects are secured inside the vehicle before driving.
  • Always keep storage compartments closed while driving.

Risk of injury
Danger from invisible laser radiation if the housing is opened or is damaged.

  • The PCM is a Class 1 laser product. Do not open the housing. Any maintenance work required must be performed exclusively by qualified customer service specialists.

To protect the vehicle battery, the PCM switches itself off automatically a few minutes after the ignition is switched off.
