On the race track or on the road: Porsche Connect expands the existing vehicle functions of the 718 Cayman GT4 with smart services and apps. All designed to make the connection between driver and car even closer. To intensify that Porsche fascination, and to make the challenges of everyday life quick and easy to overcome. You can also do without the audio and communication system, if you want. When the way there is your destination you don’t need a navigation system.
Porsche Communication Management (PCM)
Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is your central control centre for audio and communication. In its latest generation with mobile phone preparation and audio interfaces, it also features a high-resolution 7˝ touchscreen display, enabling easy control of the majority of in-car functions. On the move, you can enjoy your favourite music via the CD/DVD drive, SD cards, internal 10GB hard drive (jukebox), the AUX input or the USB connection, for your iPhone®, for example. Or you can simply listen to the radio. Your 718 also enables you to use countless Car Connect Services via smartphone, such as vehicle positioning. The optional smartphone compartment in the centre console transfers your mobile phone signal to the external aerial of the car – conserving phone charge and providing optimum reception.
Navigation including Porsche Connect
Thanks to Real-time Traffic Information, the optional navigation module including Porsche Connect gets you to your destination quicker, and offers you numerous Porsche Connect services. You can use all the online functions with the help of the integrated LTE communication module with SIM card reader. In some countries, an integrated LTE-compatible SIM card with data allowance is also included, with which you can use Porsche Connect services such as navigation and infotainment services.*
In addition to its range of smart services, Porsche Connect also offers three smartphone apps. The Porsche Connect app allows you to send destinations to your Porsche before you start your journey. As soon as your smartphone has connected to PCM, you will be able to display these in the vehicle and start route guidance directly. Even your smartphone calendar can be viewed directly on PCM and stored addresses used for navigation. What’s more, the Porsche Connect app gives you access to millions of music tracks thanks to its built-in music streaming function.
The Porsche Car Connect app lets you use your smartphone or Apple Watch® to retrieve vehicle data and remotely control selected vehicle functions. Another feature is the Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (PVTS) including theft detection.
The new Porsche Track Precision app allows driving data to be displayed in detail, logged and analysed on your smartphone.

The optionally available Apple® CarPlay function enables you to connect your iPhone® to your Porsche and have certain apps shown directly on the central display screen of Porsche Communication Management (PCM). With the Siri® voice recognition interface, you can conveniently use your apps on the move while keeping your full concentration on the road.
Every Porsche can be configured to your preferences. Porsche Connect is the same. Using My Porsche, you can retrieve relevant vehicle data and personalise your Porsche Connect services to suit your interests. By adding new destinations for your navigation system, for instance, or selecting your favourite sources for the news articles that you want to have read aloud in the car. My Porsche also lets you create additional users – such as family members or friends.
