I replced the CDR23 with Seicane Android HU.  It comes with Canbus adapter and I purchaed MOST adapter with it to make it work with factory Bose amp.

The unit powers up fine, but the MOST adapter needs to have power to work.  Any suggestion where can I connect the three wires listed in the pic to?  I assume the main socket that was connected to the CDR23 has power, but don’t know which wire is which.  How easy would it be to get power from lighter adapter aux?  I am planning to replace that lighter adapter with USB port for the HU as well.

I just installed a Pioneer Avic 8200NEX in my '06CTTS. I got the B+ (constant power from the original harness), I got switched ACC power from the right side dash fuse box. I've found that the Cayenne fuse locations in the manual can be quite different depending on your options. It helps if you list your year and model of Cayenne which may narrow down the fuses and/or harness. I know there is a big difference in the head unit wiring between the PCM and the CDR23 so the wires behind the headunit will not be different. With the Pioneer, I get the reverse signal (backup camera) and gala speed signal from the High/Low can bus signals that went into the PCM. I used a Scosche adapter but it still needed a bit of wire tapping in. I also have the volume and channel change capability from the steering wheel controls.

MY04 Cayenne S.  I was able to get B+, ACC, and ground from the Canbus harness.

 

Everything seems to be working including steering wheel controls but the amp seems to be dying.  I had CDR23 with Bose.  With CDR23, sometimes the sound will not come from the amp.  I had to change the HU regardless, but it seems that the problem is still there with the new HU.  So I may replace the Bose amp with refurbished one that Becker sells with 3 year warranty.  The only problem is how to get the amp out.  From what I have read so far, it is not an easy job.  If there is an easy way to get it out, I would be very interested in finding it out.

On yours is it just back in the right rear cubby hole? If it is should just be a 10mm socket to get 2 nuts off and take the whole bracket out or tilt it down enough. There should be a power connector and a MOST connector to it.

Let me give it a try.  Was under the impression that both the amp and the CDC required removal of panels and is not fun.

If you are replacing the amp, consider not putting a Bose back in - get free of the MOST system while you have the chance! With a nice (and expensive) HU like the AVIC just run RCA lines to the back and put in something like a JBL XD600/6. With the MOST adaptor you do not have front/back fade control, and in my CTT anyway it really needs the sound shifted to the rear speakers. Plus the sub performance is questionable. This is what I am getting around to doing with mine. Lots of threads online of people who have done this.

I did consider using something like JL Audio’s XD600/6v2.  The problem is that there is a lot of change that needs to happen if I understand it correctly.  Running wires, putting in crossovers to match impedance, and or changing speakers to something like Focal.  While I like to have better sound quality, I cannot justify the price difference for such an upgrade on a car that has 170k miles and is 14 years old and for the amount of time I will be listening to it.  Replacing the Bose amp for $500 with three year warranty from Becker is a quick and easy solution for me.

 

I am not too concerned about fading.  But I read that there is a 4 channel MOST adapter from some russian seller that lets you fade.  Can’t seem to find the link anywhere.

Just realized we are having the same conversation on Rennlist! Here is the link to the pdf, which has a link to the site, for people here.

If anyone has experience ordering from these guys it would be great to hear about it. Apparently there is a new version 4.0 with is improved. About $160 US.

Yes, I noticed it last night as well:)

 

It looks like a good product, but I can’t seem to find the option to order on their site when I viewed it via Google translation.  They don’t seem to be selling via eBay, or Amazon, and such.  Definitely want to find out if anyone else tried it.

      Greetings all... Over in the Cayenne section there is a post about the PCM System error: UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN when starting the system up... no ultimate resolution but the consensus for the cause is a break in the line... I have a 2004 Turbo Cab and installed a MoBridge system and have had ZERO issues.  My Parents have a 2004 Turbo Cab where the previous owner went cheap with either the Nav-Tv adapter, the installation, or BOTH (But when you get an otherwise pristine Turbo Cab with 28,000 miles for $42K, you don't nickel and dime).  The installer unplugged the CD changer and pulled the plug off of the fiber optic wires (that plugged into the changer) using a line break splice to plug the two wires together instead of plugging in a loop per the NAV-TV instructions.  I bought both male and female loops so that I could put the vehicle cables into a new plug and install the other plug with the loop.  Since the issue isn't resolved (but the audio works so this has to be the "break") I have to assume it isn't getting a good connection.  Upon closer examination, the fiber optic cable ends on the loops are gold metal and shorter than the plastic ends in the car loop.  This end difference prevents the plastic ends from seating far enough into the plug to make a good connection.  Any advice on how to either replace the ends, or a part number for the original Porsche plug that I could match with a different loop?  I am thinking that Porsche probably have a plug that goes into the CD Changer MOST connector for vehicles that don't have the changer installed...Thanks!!

      Hey guys and gals I have a 2010 Porsche Cayenne base and I’m having trouble connecting my IPhone 6S Plus to my PCM running software version 1.47. Now I know that Apple phones don’t accept the sim access profile, but I can’t figure out how to switch the PCM over to Hands free profile. I went to my local Porsche dealer here in Tucson, AZ today and  I told them that I had read online that they should be able to switch my PCM from SAP to HFP, but after 1 1/2 hours of trying they said that the couldn’t find how to switch it over. Any suggestions? Can it be changed using a durametric? Should I talk to another dealer in Phoenix? Any suggestion or insight will help. Thanks in advance.

      Which radios fitted to Porsche can have their unlock code recovered through serial number?
      - CR-220/CDR-220 - Becker
      - CR-210/CDR-210 - Becker
      - Traffic Pro NAV/CD - Becker

      Which radios can not have their unlock code recovered through serial number?
      - CR1 - Alpine
      - CDR-23/24 (or later) - Becker
      - PCM (Porsche Communication Management) – Siemens & Becker

      How to get your radio serial number?
      CR-220/CDR-220:
      Hold down the TP button for at least 10 seconds after you turn the radio on. "Becker 1" will be displayed. Rotate the right knob (slowly) and it will display the Becker model number. Then rotate it again and the serial number should be displayed on the radio.
      Or, if the radio is out of the car the then the serial number is on the label.

      CR-210/CDR-210:
      Press tone, then 8 and 0 simultaneously. "Becker" appears. Press station up arrow on right. "PR-VERS" appears. Press one of the numbered buttons below the display, directly below the LCD arrowheads (try a few). The model number will appear. Press station up arrow on right. "SERIAL N" will appear. Press the numbered button again. The serial number will appear.
      Or, if the radio is out of the car the then the serial number is on the label.

      CDR-23 (or later):
      These radios do not have a security code - that is, not that the user enters.
      These radios are security tested on the MOST (fiber optic bus) system to see if they are the "programmed" radio. The radios are programmed and recognized by the car’s DME and can only be replaced by a shop with a PST2 or PIWIS. These radios will not request a code when battery power is disconnected.

      Traffic Pro:
      Select the Service Menu, press NAV and multifunction key 10 simultaneously in radio mode. Use multifunction keys Nxt and Prv or turn the right control knob to select the individual items.
      You can move through the following items:
      - Model-No.
      - Serial-No. <-- this is what we need
      - Changer Reset
      - GAL
      - Radio Software
      - Radio Bolo
      - Navi Rom
      - Navi Flash
      - RTC Value
      To quit the service menu, press END.

      I get a WAIT on the display - what do I do?
      You have to wait at least 30 minutes before trying again.

      The suggested number did not work - what do I do now?
      Most often when the code we give you does not work it is because the serial number came from an old card in the car rather than from the procedure stated above - or a typo in the serial number submitted. Double check the serial number you submitted using the procedure above again.
      If that does not work then you will need to contact a dealer or Becker. Becker charges to look up your code and some dealers also charge.
      Our program works maybe 99.9% of the time but we have no explanation why it doesn't always work.

      Can you give me a code for my PCM?
      These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code, and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested.
      Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/OPC.

      Can I post my VIN to get a code?
      We do NOT need your VIN - only your radio serial number.

      Where can I post my lost code request?
      Please post your request here:
      Lost Radio Code - post your request here

      Please DO NOT PM me or email me (or anyone else helping with the codes) your radio code request - we will only answer requests in that one thread.
