Porsche made Changes to its Infotainment System, one of which is Exclusive to the Taycan

Porsche updated its infotainment system used in the 911, Taycan, Cayenne and Panamera following feedback from owners

  • Porsche launched an update for its sixth generation of infotainment system, that is installed in the 911, Taycan, Cayenne and Panamera

  • The update adds native Spotify and Wireless Android Auto among others

  • Only for the Taycan, the new Charging Planner makes long road trips easier due to more efficient route planning

Porsche has just updated its PCM 6.0 infotainment system, which is used in many models, in order to add more features and capabilities.

This system is the first one from Porsche which includes a native Spotify integration which allows drivers to link their Spotify accounts to the vehicle and use it as another media source for the sound system. The connection to the streaming service is made entirely by the car, without needing to use a mobile device.

A revised interface makes the icons for the different functions more easily recognisable due to their new colours and improvements have been made to the voice recognition software in order to make controlling the infotainment system by voice easier and more natural than before. This update also includes the integration of wireless Android Auto, which means a phone will not have to be plugged-in in order to access its contents through the car’s screen.

These modifications have been made to all of the vehicles that use the sixth-generation infotainment system, the 911, the Cayenne, the Panamera and the Taycan.

Being the only electric car in the lineup, the Taycan is the only one to benefit from the last change to the system.

The improvements the Charging Planner have made it easier and more enjoyable to go on a long road trip with a Taycan.

The Charging Planner can now more efficiently plan charging stops on a long trip in order to minimise the time spent charging. To do so, it gives priority to charging stations with higher outputs and it allows to filter out slower charge points or ones that are currently in use.

Additionally, this system can now predict more accurately the estimated arrival time by taking in consideration the time needed to start and stop the charging process at each of the stops planned on the way.
