Should anyone be wondering, like I was, if the new iPhone (5) connector works with the PCM, it does.

I got an additional cable, connected it to the iPod port in the armrest and the PCM reads and controls the music as it previously did and charges the phone, as it previously did.

To be honest I wasn't expecting this to work!



Edited to add : the PCM is the one in a MY2011 Cayenne.

How funny. I thought it wouldn't work either!

Thanks for posting this info...one less thing to worry about once I get my 981 Cayman!

Good news!

So what cable are you using? Same as the old one but with a 'lightning' connector for the phone? Or perhaps an adapter?

No adaptors, just the standard iPhone 5 cable that it came with.

So what about the round plug bit? Is that not needed at all?

There is a USB plug in the armrest which I had my iPod connected to, via a standard iPod / iPhone 2/3/4 cable.

The end of the iphone5 cable is the same USB fitting.

I have heard that anything that connects to the iPhone using a digital connections (i.e. like a computer or car stereo that actually allows control etc) will still work fine. However anything that connects using an analog connection (using the port as a line out) will not work.

This is very annoying as my PCM1 to iphone cable is analog only so will not work with an iPhone 5.

I think the maps on the latest software for the Iphone is good enough to not need a fixed sat nav. In the past, certain cars I would not buy should it not have the marque sat nav but now i would not care. Sometime soon ill be putting a spec together for a cayenne. I had thought to have PCM3 but is it really worth it? Bose is an extra anyway should you want a better sound. Would anyone now spec these cars without sat nav or is it still seen as retail suicide?
