  1. There was an extensive thread on this on 6speedonline a few months ago, and the research of several different posters indicated that the 295 size is what is supposed to come with the Turbo wheel on a 997 C2S. I have an 07 C2S with Turbo wheels, and it indeed has the 295's on the rear wheels. If you will look in the 997 Owner's Manual, you will see that the rim width for 295's is 11.0 inches, while the width for 305's is 11.5. The Carrera Sport wheel has an 11.5 width, while the Turbo wheel for C2S's has an 11.0 width, hence the fitting of different tire sizes.
  2. The microphone that comes with the Tooki seems to work very well for me, according to feedback from people I've called from the car. Of course, I have a coupe. On the advice of my installer, my mic is mounted near the center of the car just to the left of the Homelink panel above the inside rearview mirror. I assume it would also work in the 'stock' position. It's just a pain perhaps to remove the plastic trim around the steering wheel. It will work in the stock position, but if you have a Bose sound system, it has a mic there to pick up the ambient noise level so that it will know how much to compensate for in the volume level. With the factory phone option, the regular Bose mic is replaced with one with two sets of leads, one set for the Bose and one for the phone. It seems like you could put the Tooki mic under the corresponding "dummy" opening on the top of the steering column, but as you said, that would be something of a chore.

  4. Yes, you're right about that, although based on a conversation I had with Nav-TV, it may be pretty tough to do due to the self-imposed limitation of trying to stay with the PCM's factory phone interface screens and buttons. It would be very nice if they can. After all, the Parrot's firmware can be updated from a Bluetooth-enabled laptop, and now so can the Tooki.
  5. Voice activation is indeed a very nice feature. I have a Parrot Bluetooth kit in one of my other vehicles, and it works great. Since the Tooki basically tries to emulate the features of the factory phone option, I'm not optimistic about it getting voice dialing anytime soon. However, since I only make calls out to a few numbers when I'm in the 997, lack of voice dialing is not a deal breaker for me. For someone who makes a lot of calls out, it would be a different story.
  6. I just updated my Tooki with the new firmware via Bluetooth, and it seems to have cured my issue of the PCM sometimes not finding the Tooki when booting up. I am using an iPhone with the Tooki, and I have the problem of only one phone number per contact being transferred and the problem of having more than the 255 contacts that can be transferred. In my case, it transfers the first 255 in alphabetical order, so my workaround was to add separate contacts for my most frequently called numbers (home, wife's cell, etc.) and to assign a name to them such as "A Home" or "A JPRCell" so that they show up at the top of the list in the Tooki phonebook. I also discovered that you can program names with numbers into the PCM address book and have them recognized by the Tooki by first accessing the address book, selecting a name, and then hitting the "lift handset" button at the upper lefthand corner of the PCM.
  7. As I understand it from reading the Porsche TSB for retrofitting the factory phone system, the microphone that comes with the Bose system on cars that do not have the factory phone installed is replaced by a different microphone (Part Number 997.646.307.01) that connects to both the Bose system and to the phone module. Therefore, I do not think you could use your existing microphone since it needs to be connected to the Bose for the ambient noise sensing. My installer says that you can install an aftermarket microphone under the "dummy" grill on the right top side of the steering column (the factory microphone is under the left grill). However, he says that he has had better luck with outgoing voice quality with putting the microphone on the left side of the overhead console where he put mine. It really isn't very obtrusive there, and it does work very well.
  8. Hi, Nav-TV has not released a retail price yet. There is a blurb on their website saying bluetooth integration is coming soon, but nothing else yet. The screen shots posted in the thread on 6speedonline are about the best info I have seen published. It probably could use the standard microphone from a non-Bose equipped car, but the Bose system uses the standard microphone to assess ambient noise in the car and then apply compensation to the Bose stereo music output. On cars equipped with Bose and the factory phone option, they use a different microphone which has four wires (two for Bose and two for the factory phone). That would probably work with the Nav-TV Bluetooth module, or alternatively, you could probably put the Nav-TV microphone under the other grill on the steering column (left one as you sit in the car has the factory microphone under it, right one is just a dummy grill). I had mine put where it is on the advice of my installer who said in his experience, it should work better from there.
  9. Mine worked without having to go to the dealer first to have him "enter" the device into the PCM via his PIWIS. The Nav-TV device emulates the factory GSM module and connects into the PCM via the MOST fiber optic ring in a similar manner to the way the factory CD changer or aftermarket iPod adapters do. There are further descriptions of how it works along with some screen shots in a thread I started over at 6speedonline.
  10. 1. The Nav-TV kit comes with a microphone. My installer mounted it on the driver's side of the overhead console that houses the reading lights and Homelink buttons. It could be mounted in the steering column under the right hand grill, but my installer said from his experience with installing mics for various other Bluetooth kits that the location he used for me worked more effectively. 2. My prototype is called the "Tooki - P". I understand that Nav-TV plans to have the finished product available for sale late this month (Oct.).
  11. I have just had a "Release Candidate" prototype Bluetooth adapter from NAV-TV installed in my 07 C2S. It connects into the MOST ring just as do the NAV-TV iPod adapter and Sirius satellite radio adapter that I previously had installed. The Bluetooth adapter allows control of a Bluetooth cell phone via the PCM's buttons and knobs, including initiating and answering calls using the "lift handset" button at the upper left of the PCM, hanging up via the "end call" button just to the right of that, dialing calls via the PCM numeric keypad, syncing the cell phone's phonebook such that it is accessible through the PCM, making calls from the synced phonebook, displaying incoming caller information on the PCM screen, muting the radio or CD during calls, etc. Call quality is excellent, as is the sound through the car's main speaker system. The only flaw I have found with my adapter's software version is that it doesn't sync the cell phone's entire phonebook, just the first 60 or so entries. NAV-TV has just shipped me an updated adapter based on my feedback which should correct this one issue. I have paired both an iPhone and a Blackberry 8700 with the NAV-TV adapter with no other issues than the partial phonebook transfer. When I get the new adapter installed next week, I'll post whether or not it has cured this problem. NAV-TV tells me the final version of the adapter should be ready for formal release through retail channels within the next month. I had my Bluetooth adapter, as well as my satellite radio adapter and iPod adapter, installed by Custom Car Stereo in Houston, who did their usual excellent job. The Bluetooth adapter installation took well less than an hour. I also posted this information at rennlist.com and 6speedonline.com but thought it might be of interest here as well.
  12. I just had the Nav-tv iPod adapter and Nav-tv Sirius satellite radio adapter installed in my new 997 C2S, along with a Parrot 3100 Bluetooth kit taken from my now traded-in Boxster S. Everything works flawlessly with my iPhone after upgrading the firmware of the 2 year old Parrot 3100 to the latest version. The Parrot has voice recognition and allows you to scroll through the phonebook entries as well. It is mounted in a custom panel installed at the front of the "cubby-hole" space beneath the climate control panel in the center stack, the microphone is mounted on the left side of the overhead panel that contains the reading lights, and the iPod adapter cable is installed in the center console rear compartment. Of course, this doesn't allow viewing of the iPhone screen as easily or effectively as does your setup, but I mostly use voice recognition for dialing the few calls I make from the car, and my kids are grown, so no need for movies to entertain them. It would have been great when they were little, though.
