New Stereo/Navigation Option (UK)

Recommended Posts

Got an email a couple weeks ago from my local dealer with some info on a stereo headunit they're calling the "Porsche Classic radio navigation system." Thought you guys might like to see what they're offering here, so here's the email (the pics might not show up - sorry!). I'm considering it, as an audio/nav upgrade is something I've been meaning to have done to my 2000 Boxster S anyway.

Porsche Classic radio navigation system

The new Porsche Classic radio navigation system allows you to combine the best of past and present. With its state-of-the-art communication technology and vintage design references, this navigation system will complement the interior of any classic Porsche*.

The black design takes you back a few decades, starting with the two control buttons. The left button is used to control the volume and the right button is a disguised rocker switch. However, the device's key feature is the 3.5-inch touchscreen. In addition to the navigation itself, you can also find points of interest (POIs) such as attractions and restaurants. Furthermore, the device displays both your driving speed and the permissible speed limit. At the push of a button, the whole cover flips forward to provide access to other high-tech features including SD card slots, a Bluetooth® handsfree kit and a combined DVD/CD player. A USB point also means you can playback other media sources.

The new Porsche Classic radio navigation system also comes complete with a comprehensive two-year warranty.

Further details can be found below. To discuss the possible fitment of the radio navigation system for your vehicle or for more information, please contact Jenna Davies on 01223 872872 or via email jenna.davies@porschecambridge.co.uk

Yours sincerely

I'm not sure this link is for the same unit:

http://www.porsche.com/international/accessoriesandservice/classic/news/classicnews/?pool=uk&id=2010-11-04-classic

It does not mention being used on either the 996 or the 986. In any event, it could only be used on pre-MY03 ( MOST bus) cars. I do not see any information on a US data base.

There is a sales brochure available on the above link.
