Expanded online navigation and Porsche Connect App with Amazon Music and Smart Home functions
New functions, new services, new apps: with the Cayenne, Porsche is raising vehicle networking to a new level. The wide range of networking options are part of Porsche Connect Plus, which is included in the standard equipment of the new SUV generation. This means that, for the first time, drivers can now access Amazon Music, Smart Home functions provided by Nest, and Radio Plus, an intelligent combination of traditional radio reception and online radio, all through Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The new Cayenne is permanently online thanks to the integrated, LTE-compatible SIM card. This function is also included as standard. Porsche has also developed a simplified smartphone app for the key Connected Car functions. With Amazon Music, subscribers can use one of the most popular streaming services in the Cayenne directly from the PCM. In addition to the comprehensive range of music, Amazon Music also offers an ad-free audio live coverage of German Bundesliga football, DFB Cup matches and games with participation of German teams in the two major European football competitions.
Users of the Smart Home devices from Nest are also informed about their homes at all times in the vehicle. The service transmits data from smoke detectors and images from installed cameras via the Internet. It also enables control of the temperature in the house directly from the vehicle.
Another innovation is Radio Plus. This service extends the range of your personal favourite station through an integrated Internet radio function so that it is practically unlimited, provided that the chosen station offers an online radio channel. Once the Cayenne leaves the range for terrestrial radio reception via FM or digital radio, the system automatically switches to online streaming. This improves the reception quality in areas with poor radio coverage. Porsche offers a seven-gigabyte data pack for the use of the Amazon Music streaming service, for online radio and for surfing the web using the Wifi Hotspot in the vehicle.
