PostPosted: Sun Dec 08, 2019 3:21 pm    Post subject: Double DIN upgrade? Any advice? Apple play? Reply with quote

I’m looking to upgrade the factory screen to a more current double Din

My old PCM screen didn’t have Nav but did have the factory multifunction wheel.

A few questions.

I’m guessing I will lose the multi function volume & tune use. (Not a super big deal as I’m looking to swap my wheel to the basic wheel found on GT3’s)

I’m guessing that I’ll lose the radio data in the instrument cluster but will the range & mpg still work via the stalk?

Can anyone suggest a good double Din with Apple Play or at least Nav?

I’ve seen a few surrounds that match the grey 997.1 interior. Are there any to avoid? Or should I just get one off EBay? They seem to come with wiring adapters. Will this just plug & play with my Bose system?

Thanks in advance.

Current set up.

Mate, most of the ebay surrounds will be ok ,they are all quite a good colour match , If you wanted to spend lots of money then Porsche do one for cars that were supplied to Japan as these didnt get PCM but they are Between £350 and £400 Surprised whereas the ebay ones are under £100 .

Yes everything with work on your central screen except the radio/ nav directions . when you first do it you will be left with a blank screen but a a scroll through the functions will give you the other displays.

If you have BOSE you will need a MOST optical interface to get everything to communicate with the new DD head unit.

I fitted an Alpine head unit to my old gen1 but there are lots of options available . not a great photo but you get the idea.

you may see some fascias that say they dont work with cars fitted with cupholders , thats not true you just need to tweak things a little its very easy to overcome. Thumb Thumb

Thanks Phil

I quite like the idea of a rotary volume knob like your Alpine.

I’ve seen a Sony with a knob. And Apple Play.

Go with Pioneer, they seem to be offering the best single and double din Apple car play radio. Just installed mine and its excellent.

Have a look at AVH-Z9200DAB and a few other similar

That's mine.
Bose working fine & I like that it just needs a press on the button to mute.
Also, my reason for wanting a knob on it is that I don't have to take my eyes off the road to change the volume, something all these manufacturers seem to be forgetting when adding touch screens in everything.

That unit also has built in Nav, Apple car play & android interface.

Personally not a fan of the double din with a surround...looks a like to much like an after market bodge.

Ive fitted these twice before (into my TT & latterly 987) and have just brought one for my 997.

ill be fitting it hopefully next week so i'll upload some pics.

Looking at the spec, it is quite difficult to tell if it will work with Bose or the steering wheel controls.
It does however look to be a bargain.
I look forwards to your write up.

I've just installed an Alpine ilx 700 in my 997.1 looks fine with the surround.

Mine was non-Bose so a little easier to install, however the lack of a volume knob is a PITA. When I got the Apline a couple of years ago I was led to believe these were one of the best for Apple Car Play - having worked with Apple in the specs. I'm sure things have moved on.

If you swap your wheel, I'd be interested in your current one.

- Agreed, the black stereo in the silver trimmed car looks quite misplaced.


I'm looking at fitting an Alpine unit in to a gen 2, am I correct in thinking its plug and play with no need for an adapter bar a single pin re-site to activate the amp?

I'm non-BOSE.

"- Agreed, the black stereo in the silver trimmed car looks quite misplaced. "

but surely Porsche use black buttons in a silver dash? Seems to work well to me and matches the rest of the car.

Yes..you can get the optical kit to fit with the Bose amp.

Not used it personally as mine have previously had the Ask amp

Thanks for the information, I will do some more research on this.
I will be really interested in your write up on the install in the 997.

Does anyone know where to get a list of wireless CarPlay units?

They all do bluetooth and/or wireless but finding one where you have wireless CarPlay is harder.

Any ideas?
