    Most Bus on 997 / 987

    Chosen the Bose upgrade on my 987 order but decided not to get the changer. 6 CD changer isnt that great after the delights of iPod ownership!
    Does anyone know if the Most bus in the new Porkers is compatible with any aftermarket changers??
    Would love to chuck a nice fat HD Mp3 player in the boot!

    I think that some aftermarket solutions might be available sooner or later but I would be very careful because of warranty issues.
    There is a rumor that Porsche plans some sort of MP3 implementation, using the Apple iPod or other hardware but up til now, there is no solution available for the 987/997.
    And as I mentioned before, you should be careful with aftermarket installs because the MOST bus is also somehow connected to the CAN bus which connects the engine/Tiptronic/PSM/etc. control units. You have to view the whole stuff as a huge network and any unapproved/incompatible hardware could cause a lot of trouble.
    There has been a warning regarding installing aftermarket theft systems to the 987/997 due to the MOST/CAN bus system, a lot of things could get turned upside down.

    Like it or not: keep your hands of ANY aftermarket installs which connect to the MOST bus to be on the safe side. Not only regarding warranty but safety too. Even if it is very unlikely that the CAN bus operated engine DME or PSM control unit, etc. would be affected directly, it can't be excluded that it happens because there is also an interface which allows communication between the MOST bus and the CAN bus. If you want to sleep well at night... You get my point.

    G, didnt think it would be that bad! Sounds crazy that they would have entertainment systems running on the same "network" as core engine and safety systems!!!!

    Fingers crossed they create an iPod link. BMW offer one that is fully controlable through their head units, lets hope prosche does the same.

    Thanks for the reply RC

    I know what you mean about the iPod - just had the new Alpine link installed to my Alpine HU in my Mini - it's great and the sound quality superb.

    Re: Most Bus on 997 / 987

    once again, the MOST bus is brought up.

    this system is the ONLY negative aspect of porsche ownership.

    Re: Most Bus on 997 / 987

    i must say on my 997 with the bose and the cd changer i am very happy, sound quality is exeptional.

    Re: Most Bus on 997 / 987

    Bose sound is good, def good enough quality for me. In the day and age of being able to walk around with your whole CD collection with you, I'd have hoped for a bit better than 6 CD's in my Pounds40k sports car!!!!

    Re: Most Bus on 997 / 987

    its all about the AUX in... im surprised there isnt some sort of cult about this, this is a serious issue !

    Re: Most Bus on 997 / 987

    And do I dare ask the question, does the CDR-24 play MP3s? (I think I probably know the answer )

    Re: Most Bus on 997 / 987

    I wish the Mini disc player option was still there....

    nope. in fact it doesnt not even have aux in, and people have been whining about it (myself very loudly), and porsche has done nothign about it in the next generation, even after 2 years.
