PostPosted: Tue Jul 31, 2018 3:17 pm    Post subject: Bovee 1000 for Gen 2 997 Reply with quote

Hi guys,

I’m finding the process of taking my iPhone protector case annoying every time I want to plug adapter when I want to listen to music. With this in mind I was considering buying a Bovee device from amazon.

Please can anyone advise:

1) Does the the current adapter I have (the wire/lead with the 3 plugs) go straight into into the Bovee device? Or do I need to buy a separate adapter?

2) As this is a Bluetooth device, will it effect my phone accepting incoming calls to the actual telephone once it’s synced?

Cheers

One point to note is that it needs the USB port for power, so you won’t be able to use a usb stick as music source without unplugging bovee.

Or charge your phone whilst using bovee (unless you use cig lighter)

Geezer if you have spotify premium or similar you get all the music in the world ever straight from your phone into the 911 via bovee you need the bovee1000 . I have it and its great Thumb you will need the Y cable one bit in the ipod port one in the usb port and the other in the bovee ,if you dont have the Y cable and only have the single ended cable the Y is under £30 from the OPC

...unless you use a small USB 2 Port Passive Hub which fits nicely in the rear console cubby along with the Bovee

unfortunately not mate, the option I used was
https://www.nav.tv/products/porsche-pcm2-ipod-integration-por-ipod

you cant stream from spotify etc but you can leave an old ipod in the car or hook your phone up to stream your music library from your phone. the only way I found to stream spotify etc on my gen1 was to change the head unit to something like alpine etc. which gave me bluetooth, better maps , musuc streaming etc. but if you want to stay stock then really the only options I found were as above and then a navtv tooki for bluetooth phone intergration for calls only . these items are also available from other makes

I thought of this after I posted, ordered one on amazon, then found one in my drawer at work. Works a treat! Very Happy

Sorry Rob Grin Grin Grin Thumb
But before you go spending load of money mate, remember iPod unit trying to interface with an old bit of tech in the PCM2,1 so its does the job well but its not as fancy and flowing as you would get from a modern head unit. the bluetook tooki phone interface is fine , there are other versions available if you search like denison etc Thumb unless you really really want to keep it stock you will get a better result from changing the head unit and fitting a matching fascia. theres apple carplay and mirrorlink stuff avail that really would give you modern tech in the car also some have built in amps which will assist the crap Porsche amp so improved quality as well.

My Bovee arrvied today. I managed to connect the Bluetooth straight away however I do have an issue, unfortunately the sound is coming from only the left hand side my car. At first I thought the right hand side speakers stopped working. The sound balance didn’t make a difference. I then pressed tuner to check the radio stations and all the speakers worked fine...

Has anyone else experienced this or is just me? If this is the best it’s going to be I am going to send it back as I didn’t have these issues when I manually had my iPhone plugged to the y cable etc.

Doesn’t look like it’s the Bovee that’s at fault. Just plugged the Y cable manually back to my iPhone and experienced the same issue with the sound, either it’s a faulty Y cable or faulty PCM unit. I’m going to try the Y cable route first and buy a new one.

Sound from left side only happens sometimes with my bovee set up in my gen 2 997. Found that unplugging and reconnecting the bovee device from cable,does the trick. Takes a minute or two for devices to all start talking again but does work. Best not done as one is driving though.

Be careful if you have unplugged the y-cable from the car. The pins in the round connector snap/bend very easily. I broke mine when first installing the bovee. New cable £25 from OPC.

Not sure if this is a factor, but its worth nothing that when you are on hands free, the right hand speakers automatically shut down and voice sound just comes out of the left ones....

I have one of these units and I find it to be frustrating. It works sometimes immediately and then I get our of the car to buy fuel or a Starbucks and then it will not re-pair with the phone. I can't see the phone then I restart the PCM and it sees it but won't play the music, or it plays the music from my phone although I can control it on my PCM, then I restart the phone and the PCM and eventually it works. It's a great idea in principle and on a long trip when you are in the car for a few hours it's fine, but if you are getting in and out it's a faff.

I also find that often when it does pair with the Bovee when I go into Bluetooth settings the phone part did not pair and I have to do it manually.

Don't know if my unit is faulty but that is my experience. And it's behaved this way with two phones.
