PCM 2.1 Navigation, North Up?


Recommended Posts

I'm new to the forum and a new Porsche owner with an '06 Carrerra 2 with Navigation. My car did not come with manuals and I've found the basic manual on here, but have a question about the PCM which it doesn't detail. My preference is to have the navigation system remain in a North Up orientation but can't seem to find a menu option to allow this. Is this possible or do I have to deal with the screen spinning around as I make turns? If anyone on here knows how to change this I'd appreciate the help. Thank you, and man is this car awesome!!!

Good question. I'll poke around in my PCM manual tomorrow if I have time, but I find that it can be a bit vague for this techno dolt who has to rely on his sons to guide him thru that kinda stuff! You can also use the Forum's search facility. It comes in very handy. And yes, these cars ARE awesome! Welcome to the forum!

With the PCM on and the map showing on the screen push in the knob on the right that looks like the volume knob. A menu screen will come up in grey that actually sits on top of the map itself. Rotate the knob down to the "North" setting choice and then push the knob again. This will close the pop up screen and set the map always facing north.

Ah. You answered MY question of how to get to the little menu box. Thanks!

Thank you so much for the help. This is a great forum and I look forward to learning everything I can about my Porsche here.
