PCMs use of cellular data? Verizon okay?

Recommended Posts

I was looking at a 2012 Cayenne today.  I was trying to get an understanding of what features are available if you have put a cellular SIM card in the slot.   I  am assuming of course that with a SIM inserted you can have a phone without bluetooth pairing.  But does the cayenne use/need cellular data for anything?  It seems like in this is model traffic data comes in via satellite radio.  

Also, is Verizon allowed, they use a CDMA network that is a bit different then most GSM providers like ATT or Tmobile.  I know in my older Cayenne Verizon wasnt supported at al

If you have a cell phone - you can simply ignore the SIM card slot and just bluetooth your phone to the Cayenne. That's the simplest way. The Cayenne doesn't use the internal phone guts for anything - the traffic info is over Sirius/XM and costs you about $9/month (more if you want entertainment.. but they do respond to dickering..)  The Bluetooth is depending on your phone - not the carrier. My Verizon phones seem to hook up just fine.
