I drive a 04 Cayenne turbo, and am pretty pissed off I can't get the updated maps. Mad enough actually to buy whatever DVD version of the PCM I can find and put it in. Obviously I'll need dealership help regarding the PIWIS to get the new system accepted. I spoke with a fairly knowledgeable technician who said the DVD system is under the passenger seat, whereas the CD system is a slot-loading part on the PCM, and the wiring was different enough he told me I'd be better off selling the 04 and buying an 05 with one.

Is this even possible to move from a CD system to a DVD system? Cost is somewhat of an issue; I won't pay over 2500 unless it's done by a team of gymnastic midgets (for entertainment purposes. I'd want my money's worth).

3ball, buy a Garmin. Much easier. And portable.

If I wanted cheap and easy, I'd have bought a Ford Edge :)

I know I'm doing it the hard way, but I hope to make it actually function and not just a waste of console space. I'm half tempted to just sell the PCM and buy a working system and custom fit it. We'll see just how ugly this gets before I get irritated enough to use a 3G cell connection uplink to the internet for realtime maps...

Hey 3ball, you got part of that right! The Garmin is easy to use. As for cheap, mine was over $850 retail (Nuvi 680) last year. Got it on the internet from one of the many places out east for about $650. Love it.

I do understand your concern and strategy.

I think the navigation Porsche offers is very $$$$$. And limited. That's why I opt'ed for the Garmin route.

Good luck! :)

Buy a PIONEER AVIC double-din: you will get navigation, satellite, weather, real time traffic, bluetooth, iPod etc.

You find them on eBay for about $1,100. While you are on eBay, get the double-din fascia kit for $330. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Porsche-CAYENNE-DOUBLE-DIN-DASH-KIT_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ40017QQitemZ280207390819QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWINQ3a

Good luck and keep us posted.

PANASONIC also makes great double-din systems.

Hi all.

I'am interested in any solution either.

I have Cayenne with PCM 2.0 and I'm willing to use DVD maps... what is the easiest way to do it (without using Garmins, etc)?

Probably the best (cheapest?) would be to buy Porsche DVD player, connect it to my PCM 2.0 and use... but is it possible?

Thx in advance.
