    Seicane

    Ordered it directly from seicane.com - recommend you do that you may need to talk to them to figure out the install Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Seicane

    It came with everything you need. Instructions are weak to say the least, but everything fit up and worked perfectly once I figured out how it all goes together. I paid about $600 and it came in about a week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Seicane

    Yeah I put one in my 09. Not the greatest but improvement over factory and looks perfect. Very easy install. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. This is the one I got: https://www.seicane.com/android-in-dash-car-dvd-gps-system-for-2003-2011-porsche-cayenne-with-am-fm-radio-bluetooth-music-mirror-link-obd2-3g-wifi-hd-1024-600-multi-touch-capacitive-screen-s127014 If you try to order any other unit from the site for a Porsche Cayenne, they'll redirect you to this one. So the other units are basically there entertainment purposes only as near as I can tell. You only need the "Support 2003-2011 Year Original car's Optical Fiber Amplifier" option if you have the Bose system. If you don't have the Bose system, you don't need it. This option gives you the MOST decoder required to connect to the fiber-optic ring that the amp is on. The only option I ordered was the ODB II adapter. The unit comes pre-loaded with the Torque app and it does work quite well. A little disappointed with the variety of read outs it gives. Would've liked to have fuel pressure in there to diagnose a rough idle I'm currently suffering but not sure that's even available via ODB II. Aside from that, feedback on the 3G adapter is not positive, don't think I need live TV while driving or DAB+ or any of the video options. I'm basically using this thing as a Car Play-like dumb display for my iPhone and for that it works fine.
  6. Yes, the Seicane unit came with a CAN BUS adapter and the steering wheel controls worked as soon as I connected it. The unit also ships with an app that allows you to custom map the steering wheel buttons, but as I said mine all mapped properly out of the box. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Ok full disclosure, I've only had this thing installed for 5 days and haven't read the operating manual yet. So to be fair it could all be user error. The sound via Bluetooth A2DP is terrible. Teeters are making a metallic sound and generally distorted. However, if I connect my iPhone via "MirrorLink" which Seicane calls "EZ Connect" the sound is perfect - MUCH better than the factory unit. The internal navigation app take a really long time (5-10 min) to figure out the route. Not sure if that's because it doesn't have an internet connect or what exactly but it sucks. Again, screen mirroring completely solves this problem by displaying Google Maps or Waze from my iPhone onto the screen. Also - and do think this is user error - my unit forgets all my settings every time it shuts down, i.e. I turn the car off. It does remember WiFi and Bluetooth connections but it doesn't seem to like to connect to them without manual intervention. So I have to do this kabuki dance every time I get in the car to connect my iPhone via tethered WiFi, mirror the screen, and then launch Google Maps, Pandora or whatever else. Not exactly what I had in mind when I bought this thing. But it is a major improvement over the OEM unit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I just put an aftermarket Seicane Chinese Android head unit in my 09. It was VERY easy to install and looks remarkably stock. The quality of the unit itself is a little suspect and it's already started doing some strange things. But for $600 and about 20 minutes to install, I can't complain.
