Bad news. Silly fobs are still part of the solution.

Once you get registered with the Porsche Connect Portal then your sign up for the security services. Its £266 pa or £476 for 2 years.

Another bad point - if the battery on the fob runs low, you get a warning message on your display each time you start the car.

I don't have the system active but still need to change the batteries ...

I recently had the message on my dash on the Cayenne warning , no communication........changed the battery new for old .... No change .... Called vodka phone help number ...they recommended a reset at ..the local
dealer...

Hmm.....dealer is 3 hours away from me ........

But ....delivered the car to .OPC Glasgow ..whilst I swanned off to Jersey for aWeek with family ......they did the reset ,valeted my car (,did a decent job of it too).... Car was ready at no cost on my return .......

Good service fae the Glesgae team !!

Look at the Smartrak tracker. No fob and you get an app so you can keep an eye on the car's location.

As far as I am aware, the difference between the standard tracker that I have on my Range Rover and the system fitted in my 991.1 is that if my RR is stolen, nobody knows until I notice it’s missing. I then report it as stolen and they track it. With the 911, if the fob is not in the car when it is stolen then The tracking company knows straight away. The difference being the RR could be stolen from my driveway whilst I am away on holiday and will be in Africa by the time I get back. The 991 fob system is better - an extra item to carry whenever I drive is no issue to me.

Yes, it’s been a good system. Simply third year renewal.
