Has anyone been able to set up their PCM to access the 'Porsche Connect' Apps such as weather and travel updates plus the other Infotainment Services which are promoted at https://connect-store.porsche.com/gb/en/navigation---infotainment-services/p/bundle_navigation_infotainment

Are owners of 911.2 still waiting for this functionality still to become available?

I can't access these services either and checking with my sales contact suggested they would be launched with the new Panamera. A bit rich to advertise them on the connect site when not available. I can't get Aha to connect either

Yesterday I went to the dealership and I was informed that I should receive a code in about 6 months to gain access to these features. Yes I agree its not very good Porsche advertising features on their website which are not available yet and not including any reference of this fact.

I spoke to Porsche Hatfield this morning and was told I would receive an invite to register for these services but that there was no timeframe known yet. The one I am really interested in is the online updating of the navigation maps. Not sure I would use the others but nice to have.

One of the things I am amazed that Porsche do not offer with the new PCM is the ability to upload custom car routes such as from https://www.myrouteapp.com This application exports various Sat Nav formats none of which the PCM you can upload. The only thing I have found with the PCM is the ability to upload destination points (POI's) via the Porsche Connect App. With my previous Alpina this had this capability up upload custom routes via the iDrive back in 2009 direct from my home PC.

Admittedly, i haven't yet found any use at all for the PCM...

Aside from NAV & Phone, the only aspect that I find of actual use is the Apple Car Play, which is spot on.

This is the software version in mine

@6appeal

Can you tell me how you dug out the info on software version?

I'm trying to pull it out myself but with little luck.

Thanks 6appeal

I have just checked mine is the same as yours regarding Version Navigation
However the software version is slightly different.

I thought of trying this to see if there is a update, but it appears the update can only be done via CD/DVD or SD card and not by WiFi Sad

Yes, me also... I assume that they connect to the Porsche dealer wifi. Unless it changes in the future, as I believe they plan that you can get map updates etc.

Didn't someone say that Porsche (dealers?) would send out letters for the update?

I was at Porsche Hatfield yesterday and was told that the full range of services is now available for the 991.2.Has anyone received an email or letter explaining how to get it??

They are going to look into it and come back to me next week.

Got a letter from "Porsche Cars" last week, saying that a navigation & software update is now available.
Will have - update maps, access new intelligent online services, etc

Update takes about 2 hours and is free.

You're then meant to "activate your car in the Porsche Connect portal" then you get an email to register. I think you do this after software update.

The letter says - for more info, visit porsche.co.uk/connect

Other than the software update, the rest sticks to the clarity of info I've come to expect from Porsche Dont know

I am told that I already have the latest software but still cannot access it. Apparently you have to wait for an email from Porsche but when that will arrive no-one seems to know. Very frustrating.

Yes, but in addition to a software update, there also is a map update - all this according to the letter I got.

Curious as I believe we got our cars round about the same time.
Mine is July 2016 vintage.
