PCM help: have nav w/o phone: can I swap with one with phone button?

Recommended Posts

I read up and down posts...:

still unclear:

I have a 05 cayenne with a PCM with Nav without the phone.

I want to have the phone in my car:

can i swap PCM with one which has the phone or is it either to complicated or cost prohibitive and should I stick with a parrot set up?

thanks in advance

The PCM unit with or without phone is the same (in Europe), you need some electric wiring + connectors, antenna + wiring, phone control box, optical wiring + connectors and PIWIS diagnostic tool. Labour time is approx. 5 hours for qualified P. mechanic. Your parrot alternative looks much cheaper for the same result.

I have a 2005 TT, PCM 2.1 with NO Phone buttons. I installed a Mobridge sytem with bluetooth, sirius, and IPOD connection. The phone worked fine but I had to be controlled from the phone itself. Meaning hte kicrophone from the mobridge and he speakers worked fine. I could see the phone bars etc. The problem was I had no phone buttons. SO I bought one with phone buttons on ebay (sold mine without them for same price :)) and just plugged it in. WHat I got was full functioning phone with no glitches. You may need to go to the dealer and have them change a few settings, but 30 minute job at worst. I also got the compass function on my dash that I was not expecting. All pretty easy to do.
