Hi i have 2009 c4s with pcm 3.0 no nav , i have been experiencing constant issues with the bluetooth , brought it in and out of good faith and 500$ porsche replaced the unit 2 times, after there head field tech came to the dealership the conclusion was made that all pcm 3,0 have a 48 second delay for calls to patch through or they don't come through at all . So basically if your on a call , walk to your car unlock and start it phone connects but there is no sound resulting to the other party hanging up , after that you try calling back and same issue until the third time if your lucky . So after 8 times at the dealership in 6 moths time not understanding the issue , the answer was clear all cars with nav don't have this issue and as the field tech told me 99% of cars sold have nav so we never really had this issue and there is nothing we can do but change the whole thing for 7000 + install and other little parts . obviously i am not going to spend 7000$ for it to work properly . So next is that porsche north america contacts me telling me that this is normal functionality of the pcm and that there is nothing more we can do and for all this inconvenience we will send you a 2000$ check . So i told her but you realize there is a issue that has slipped through Porsche hands and we have just discovered it, a flaw that nobody realized and that it just slipped through. I then told her but you have a fix and its replace my pcm with nav and everything will work fine , her answer was no and thats final ,so i asked where i sit indicated in the manual that cars without nav function this way ? she had nothing to say . Minutes later sending me by email a confidential letter that i need to sign and return basically releasing them from any further actions and for me to accept this as proper functionality of the pcm as Porsche specs .

 

what to i do ? sue them ? take the money ? I'm sure if i contact stuttgart and ask if this is normal functionality the answer will be no.

 

thank you 

MM

Italsem, take the 2000 dollars and find the best stereo installer in your area. For about $3000 installed you can get an Alpine or Kenwood Complete Nav unit and a NAV TV integration module. The job can be done to look perfectly factory and you will get the best of all worlds, sound, Bluetooth, nav the works. Only the newest systems in the 991 series are up to snuff. Everything previously......sucks. Porsche won't give in to you because they would have to give into everyone. In this regard the $2000 is an apology from them. Few other manufacturers would do this so, take it and run!! Trust me, you will be happy as a clam in the end.

Mijostyn is on the money here.  Because of the design and setup lead times in automotive manufacturing, just about any digital or electronic entertainment technology that appears in a car is usually already about 5 years old when it first appears in the car, so it is not unusual to be able to do much better for less money in the aftermarket.  Take the money and go buy something that better suits your needs.

      Hey! Just got my first Porsche, a 2009 Cayenne and love it! 
      The bluetooth connectivity in PCM is killing me though. Can't get it to pair, not with iPhone 5 nor with a Nokia Lumia 930. 
      My iPhone finds the " PCM" in bluetooth settings, I get to enter the code in both devices even. But after entering the code, I get "Connection failed". The other way around, PCM does not find iPhone at all when I "Search for phone". Is this an issue with bluetooth antenna or something, or could a software upgrade on PCM likely help? Bluetooth is enabled on PCM of course. The car has a SIM slot as well but I suppose that has nothing to do with this.
      I would like to make calls as well as stream audio to the car. Any ideas, others having faced similar issues?

      My aux button is not appears in the console. I clicked around and it appears that i have v1.4, how do i know if i need to upgrade?  Also, how do you upgrade? I read around that it is worth it to goto 2.4 or 3.x? But how do i do it?

      I have a 2011 Panamera Turbo that has had the OEM PCM 3.1 Bluetooth system functional since day one. It worked fine until last week while I was in my car with my phone connected to my car PCM via Bluetooth and I happen to have another headphone device connect to my phone and it somehow made my PCM malfunction once I got an incoming call and now my car thinks that it does not have a Bluetooth module in the car? Any suggestions or recommendations are welcome. 
       
      I have already taken it to my local Porsche dealer and they recommended to replace the whole PCM which in my book is an odd recommendation and not a solution. 
      I would like to activate my Bluetooth service as it seems it might be a recoding scenario 
       
      in the pictures i posted shows how clicking on "Activate Bluetooth " does nothing and says in a blue font bellow the screen that the "function not available"

      Hi everybody
       
      I have never used a forum before and I don't know how it works exactly so I am hoping I don't break any rules here
       
      I just bought a 2009 Carrera but the navigation is not installed. 
      I want to install the Navigation but I am not really sure what parts I'm missing. I took it to a Porsche dealership and they told me that I need to buy the entire PCM for 5K. I read somewhere that you only need to buy the Nav module where the disk is and the antenna but I don't know if this is true or not.
       
      Any advice?/
       
      Thanks in advance
