    Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    OK, now that I've gotten the winter tire situation (or lack thereof) off my chest, my latest pet peeve is the promise of an integrated phone system being available "any day now" and still waiting on this option from my dealer. Are there others out there who have this option and if yes, what's your source?

    Re: Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    The PCM phone module is available for ordering and it should be available from Tequipment as a retrofit any time soon. Ask your dealer.

    Re: Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    "Any time soon" is the response I've been getting from my dealer for a few months now and still nothing...another "how complex does this need to be" question and a) when will the kit be available and b) should I just (again!) go aftermarket and what are advantages or disadvantages of doing so...frustration runs deep!

    Re: Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    Same situation exists for the navigation module. I wonder how much labor is involved in putting each module in the vehicle. Heard a rumor it's 12-hours for the navigation module, but I don't know if it's true. If so, that's really f@#$ed up.

    Re: Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    I was told the phone module would not be available until January. -- and this came from a VP of Marketing PCNA.

    Re: Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    On November 19, PCNA communicated (in the vehicle distribution bulletin) that options 666 (module for telephone PCM) and 668 (handset for telephone module) were released and available for ordering on 997 and 987 models.

    Re: Still no phone package available in the US??!!

    There is a difference between PCNA accepting an order for a new 997 with the phone module fitted at the factory and them being able to supply retrofit kits.
    My VA dealer tells me that they don't expect any kits until February.
    I suppose that one could order a kit from Germany as the part number is the same (not so for navigation, although that might just be down to the DVD map) - but who would install it?
    It would indeed be useful to know whether it is a simple slot-in job in the back of the PCM, or whether it is more complex, and perhaps require system coding.
