    TV on PCM

    Hi guys! When we are able to watch TV on our PCM?
    Thanks

    Re: TV on PCM

    Why would you want to?

    Re: TV on PCM

    Cell phones are bad enough.
    And if some people would watch less TV, they would have more time to learn correct grammar.

    Re: TV on PCM

    TV on PCM?????!!!!!! Next you will want video games on PCM. You could play Road Rally or some other interavtive video game and even have paddles added to the wheel to play while you drive. Maybe I could get the video of the car crash...cool ? I think I will stick to driving my Porsche.

    Re: TV on PCM

    Porsche Cayenne have it. . . .

    Re: TV on PCM

    It's illegal (I heard) for the driver to be able to see TV while driving.

    Re: TV on PCM

    I mean when the car is stationary..

    yes, but I'm guessing that if the cop were a stickler and he found out the car was equipped so the driver COULD watch TV while driving you'd get a ticket because you have an illegal equipment situation.

    Re: TV on PCM

    Cayenne have a special mechanism inside the PCM: No TV when the car is running...
    I think it's great

    Probably never since PAG wants to avoid customer complaints . It just makes no sense to offer TV if you can't watch a complete movie.
    What will happen if you watch TV in your car while the engine is not running?
    The battery is drained very fast. If you watch too long you can't start the engine afterwards. Therefore, the car has low voltage supervision built in that switches off AC and the infotainment components (nav, audio, phone and your TV ) if the voltage drops below a critical level. In order to improve usage of the infotainment components in the Cayenne you can order an additional battery. Since the 911 has no optional additional battery and its battery capacity is considerably smaller (at least if no vehicle tracker system is installed) than the Cayenne's first battery usage of the infotainment components in the 911 is much more limited if the engine is not running.

    Re: TV on PCM

    it would be handy when stuck in some traffic jam.

    Re: TV on PCM

    I have it in my M5 and I find it very handy and cool. Good for waiting around, or finishing off a sports event what not.

    Re: TV on PCM

    I don't think we need another distraction form driving. There is a lot of driver who can not talk on a cell phone and drive(even hands free) I hate when I see a Tv in the front of a car, Knowing that a human brain is not capable of true multi-tasking.

    My sentiments entirely.

    Re: TV on PCM

    Please let me know if you're going to be watching movies on the PCM while moving, I'll be sure to leave after you do.

    Re: TV on PCM

    Video in a car seems like a BAD idea,...unless it's in the back seat for kids.

    Re: TV on PCM

    Adelaide I'm completely in agree with you!
    We can use it also for spend our time while waiting someone in the car..
    Better have it for me too!

    Re: TV on PCM

    I defintely never use it while driving, its really just for waiting around or listening to broadcasts that otherwise wouldn't be on the radio.

    most TV systems have it so that you can't watch it when the car's moving anyhow.

    Re: TV on PCM

    Exactly!!

    Good for the passenger on long trips, or while waiting for your passenger to fix her hair while you wait forever in the driveway.

    Re: TV on PCM

    I just listen to the engine idling ...
