Hi Guys,

Ive just bought a 2002 C4S, with the porsche PCM. im not sure if its PCM1 or 2? The sat nav is outdated, i was wondering what the most up to date maps available for the unit (whichever one it is!), or what other solutions you guys have come up with?
The cd changer does not read mps discs either, can the changer be swapped out for a more modern version?

thanks in advance guys.


Martin

if it has a CD above the screen (and not a tape) you can easily buy the updated maps on eBay. they work well and cost about £20

Hi Martin,

If the PCM has a tape drive and a separate drive for the Sat Nav then it will be a PCM1.

PCM 2 has an integrated drive for the Sat Nav disk and it will also play music CD's.

If you take the disc out and turn n the radio.
Then press the MAIN & TRIP buttons at the same time you will enter a hidden screen and the software version, device type, serial number and version of the PCM will be displayed.

I think the latest software is version 3.0 as I updated mine last year.

I ordered a new sat Nav disc and a software update disc from an online supplier last year. I think it was about £30.

The software update was quite easy just a matter of inserting the update disc and allowing it to do its stuff.

Don't expect much from the PCM though as the navigation is still quite outdated compared to the likes of Tomtom etc.

Hi Martin,

I think it was this site :

https://www.latestsatnav.co.uk/latest-2016-sat-nav-disc-update-for-porsche-pcm20-navigation-map-cd-202-p.asp

The discs worked a treat.

Cheers

Stewart.
