Next to the Amp and Telephone it has the little warning signs, any ideas?

I have a PCM 2.1 with software version 4. This was a new unit from
Porsche about 12 months ago (previous owner paid a stupid amount)

I am also confused as the manual says I can set up individual settings, but this option isn’t on the screen.

???

No idea, but I am going to my local OPC tomorrow afternoon and I will show the tech bloke and let you know what he says. Very Happy

Its been about 6 years since ive needed to look at this but from memory it just means the amp/phone have an older software version than the other items.

The amp still works i take it as you havent said anything about no sound and i very much doubt you use the phone so its not something to worry about .

Floor Floor Floor because it’s the worst phone system in the world by any chance deMort ?...... Out of interest, is the microphone part fitted somewhere near the alternator in the engine bay? It usually sounds like it to anyone at the other end of the line frustrated

Lets just say .. its an old system that was old at the time it was introduced and .. er .. had its failings Smile

Im pretty sure the mic was in the steering column on these .. it is on most models anyways .. lets just say there was a few pages of updates and fixes listed for this .. a long read for a very little fix Very Happy

Individual settings will only be available if you have sports chrono (I think).

You’d have to be bonkers to replace PCM 2.1 with another one! Reminds me that I could do with changing mine at some point!
