Introduction

Are you a Porsche owner looking to use your smartphone safely while on the road? One of the primary rules of road safety in this modern world is to not use our phones while driving. However, it’s not a feasible solution for most of us, as connectivity has become a necessity rather than a luxury. So we talked to our team at our Porsche Repair Center in Dubai to know what’s new in the automotive world. For Porsche owners, we have something new that makes seamless smartphone connectivity a reality.

Keeping pace with customer needs, many automobile brands now integrate the latest technologies into their vehicles. Some of the notable ones are apps that allow seamless connectivity while driving. Porsche is one such brand that has redefined smartphone integration with their vehicles. Recently they started adapting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay into their newer models. These applications allow you to interact with the dashboard touchscreen the way you do with your phone itself. This has made life so much easier for Porsche owners.

Let’s learn more about Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. We will also discuss how our car mechanics can help you set up these applications in your Porsche to ensure smartphone connectivity while you take your Porsche for a drive.


The perfect blend of performance and connectivity

Porsche has always been at the forefront of automotive innovation, combining high-performance engineering with luxurious comfort. With the integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Porsche owners can now experience new dimensions to their driving experience, without compromising on performance.

To help us understand these applications better, our car mechanics helped break down the details.


Android Auto

Android Auto is Google’s solution for enabling in-car connectivity. This smartphone mirroring application helps connect your smartphone with the infotainment system of your Porsche. This helps you get a simplified view of your smartphone on the dashboard display screen. If your Porsche is equipped with Android Auto, you can access a range of hands-free features. This includes making and receiving calls, sending and receiving messages, Google Maps navigation, and accessing music apps such as Spotify or Google Play Music.

Android Auto is an incredibly handy application while driving, as it allows you to focus on the road while still being connected to your smartphone and use it as required.

The Android Auto was added to the sixth-generation Porsche Communication Management System, and the wireless application is now available for all Porsche models produced from 2022 onwards. The wired versions are available in some models of Cayenne, Panamera, and Taycan as of 2021. You can also access the application in some older models if you fit it. The Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus (PCCM Plus) makes it possible to integrate to older models, which can be done at our Porsche Repair Center.

To set up Android Auto in your Porsche you need to first ensure that your phone and car are compatible with the application. Then Wi-Fi and Bluetooth must be enabled to complete the setup. In older models, you will require a USB cable to pair your phone to the car. If you have access to the wireless version, you can pair your smartphone via Bluetooth. This will help you access necessary applications on your Porsche’s dashboard while driving. You can also activate Google Assistant with the help of a voice control button on the steering wheel for a completely hands-free experience.

While Porsche’s newer models support Android Auto, you can get Android Auto added to older classic versions such as the Porsche 911 at our car repair workshop in Al Quoz. We help with the installation of Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) after-market units. This enables you to use Android Auto for stress-free connectivity.


Apple CarPlay

For those with an affinity for Apple devices, Porsche’s integration of Apple CarPlay offers a similar level of connectivity. By connecting an iPhone to the vehicle’s infotainment system, users gain access to a familiar interface on the car’s display. This includes Apple Maps for navigation, hands-free calling with Siri, and the ability to use apps like Apple Music and Podcasts seamlessly while driving your Porsche. 

Apple CarPlay is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly, allowing Porsche drivers to enjoy the benefits of their iPhones without taking their eyes off the road. With Siri’s voice control, tasks can be accomplished with minimal distraction, making the driving experience safer and more enjoyable.

Much similar to that of Android Auto, integrating Apple CarPlay comes with the benefit of staying connected while staying safe on the road.

Setting up Apple CarPlay in a Porsche is straightforward and offers two methods. Ensure your iPhone has the latest iOS software, with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Siri activated, along with Porsche Active Connect. First, on the central digital display, navigate to ‘devices’ and ‘device manager’ to connect a new device. Then, on your iPhone, go to ‘General’ settings, select ‘CarPlay’. Here you choose Apple CarPlay on your Porsche infotainment system, confirming the pairing. Alternatively, you can also access it via the Porsche’s steering wheel. 

Apple CarPlay can also be integrated into older classic models of Porsche with the help of either Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM). The same can be done with Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus (PCCM Plus), the official infotainment system from the brand.

Seamless Transition Between Devices

One of the standout features of Porsche’s integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is the ability to seamlessly transition between the two platforms. Whether you’re an Android user or an iPhone enthusiast, the car effortlessly accommodates both, providing a consistent and user-friendly experience.

This flexibility is a testament to Porsche’s commitment to customer satisfaction. The brand recognizes that drivers may have different preferences when it comes to their choice of mobile devices.


Future-Ready Connectivity

As technology continues to evolve, Porsche’s commitment to providing a connected driving experience remains unwavering. The integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is not just about the present. The brand has always had a forward-looking approach. This is why they ensure that Porsche drivers stay connected on road without compromising their safety.

With over-the-air updates becoming more common, Porsche owners can look forward to continuous improvements in connectivity and functionality. This future-ready approach ensures that your Porsche remains at the forefront of automotive technology. The brand adapts the latest advancements without the need for physical upgrades.
