From Porches newsroom. Seems us Gen 2'ers are fresh out of luck.

I am surprised no replies on this, I guess not many Gen 2 owners were holding out for the PCCM+

I was and thats a proper shame - nearly went with a hi spec Pioneer AVIC earlier in the year but pulled it as I heard about these

Maybe it just means we are further down the queue...

Old news. I'm still hoping that Porsche will include 987.2 in a couple of years.

Apologies for the thread hi-jack (just a little one), Julian987R please PM me re Olympic Blue? Tried to PM you, your profile is se to not allow emails.
It seems I haven't got Private mail access nor ability to contact PM. If by chance it is related to the 981, I then noted a comment about steering wheel and paddles which lead me to assume it is pDK, which I wouldn't want regrettably, but you can PM me via Cayman OC forum.
Thanks

Could not care less about upgrading PCM in my 7.2 3s. They are for driving with a brilliant sound system hanging out over the rear axle. If I need navigation, my iPhone does the trick better than any built in system.

Reminds me of s radio advert for the 911 in the late 70s which referred to a symphony in 12 valves as a reason not to install a radio (optional).

I went back from 997.2 to 997.1. The PCM in the .2 whilst flawed, was far better than that in the .1. I'm interested in PCCM+ if it means I can ditch the Nav DVD in the boot and reclaim the space!

i think it is Gen 2 supported but the issues I see are
low res
carpay only by wire - which means a cable hanging out the front....which will look a mess. Why no wireless Carplay?
no backup cam support.

I think its a bit of a lame release and wonder if the nmautomotive or the forthcoming
https://www.mr12volt.com/collections/frontpage/pro...

which uses M.O.S.T. bus connection to deliver top notch digital audio and 15 bars DSP equalizer for full sound customization

and will do carplay wirelessy.

isnt that better in many ways?

Wow, looks good but the functionality seems very underwhelming. Can't think that microphone will be much use (especially on RHD cars), a cable for AirPlay... really... loss of CD (important for old schoolers like me).

Given the bezel colour I assume this is 997.1 only (PCM 2.1 replacement).
