.............Update PCM1......


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a boxster '99 with pcm1, I want to update my system navigation to pcm2 but Porsche has told me its impossible for reasons optic fiber, I am not sure if this is correct, help me.

On the other hand I guess its possible update to pcm1 16bit, It looks to be more powerful than old 8 bit. is it worth? of which the update consists? cost?

Best regards.

Yes, the 16 Bit PCM 1 version is more powerfull and is updated with the newest roads and stuff. If the map on your 8 bit system works good enough and is okay updated I would keep it. Elsewhere it is a waste of money.

PS. The price in Europe is around 1700 Euro that includes a new 16 Bit CD-reader and calculator plus hole Europe nav cd´s

pcm1 8 bit has got a problem, last update 2001. Often roads are changing, and when you don`t hope the system takes wrong road, thats the real problem.

Yes, there is even a PCM2 DIY here in the DIY section. It is for a Carrera but a Boxster is pretty much the same.
