Porsche sat nav now standard in UK on all new models

Porsche Communication ManagementEvery new Porsche sold in the UK from June 2017 will feature standard sat nav and Porsche Connect services as part of a digital drive that introduces the latest Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system on every model in the brand’s range. 

More cool tech on Motoring Research: 

All 2018 model year cars will feature Porsche Connect tech, which offers a broad range of connectivity features, although not all of them are currently live: Porsche says onboard wifi and music streaming will “in the future” be launched via the Porsche Connect Store. 

The SIM card-based system includes three years’ free annual map updates, plus “periodic updates from the internet”, again for three years. It’s all in response to customers demanding “a seamless transition of their digital devices between home, office and car,” reckons Porsche. 

Included today in Porsche Connect services are: 

  • Real Time Traffic Information
  • Online search
  • Fuel prices
  • Parking information
  • Connect Portal (for managing personal data)

The Porsche Connect App also offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. And, if there’s anything else new in the future, customers will be able to download that functionality to their car, too. 

Other 2018 model year updates for the Porsche range include: 

  • Standard DAB radio on 718 Boxster and Cayman
  • Larger 75-litre fuel tank on all Macan
  • Heated front seats and floor mats on all 911

Sadly, you don’t get something for nothing. Both list prices and options prices will go up, as part of “a regular price increase for all models”. Expect these to be confirmed ahead of ordering opening for the 2018 model year cars this June.
