I recently had my dealer install a 997-044-901-51 Retrofit Kit Update on the nav system in my 2006 C2. They did not provide any additional instructions for operating the system. I am still exploring what exactly is different between the before and after. However, one thing that is very apparent is that the map now displays numerous icons all over for what appears to be gas stations, grocery stores, and various other types of businesses. Should any additional instructions been provided? Does anyone know where the code for the icons can be found so that I know for sure what the icons represent? Also, is it possible to turn the icons off?

Thanks in advance for any information that may be out there.

According to the TSB "Additional new features can be found in the Owner’s Manual or Quick Reference Guide for the PCM2.1 as of model year 2006."

All the other instructions are for Porsche Techs doing the install. They are based on the options and current level of your software prior to upgrading.

It is TSB 32-07 9110 PCM2.1 - Navigation Update -- dated July 11, 2008.

All our Contributing Members here have access to read all TSBs online.

I suggest you get the PCM quick reference and full instruction manuals. All the information on operating the system can be found there. The problems you are experiencing are the result of having new functionality and no supporting documentation. This appears to be an oversight in the supplied navigation retrofit package.

Thanks for all 3 responses. It was especially insightful getting 3 very different approaches to answering the question. I did find the answer in the manual.

Lesson learned...... read before you write. Loren you are the best, thanks again!

Get the MY06 PCM manual - available from your dealer or on eBay. It will show you how to use the new functionality. There is an easy way to turn off the icons - go into MAP mode, hit the "SET" button and make sure POI is unchecked by pressing the right side round rotary knob.
