    PCM-iPhone connection

    I'd like your input on the matter of pairing an iPhone to the 997.2 PCM with telephone module (option 666).

    The iPhone fails to connect whereas a simple Nokia phone pairs perfectly. I think with the above Porsche option you can pair phones that support the SIM Access Profile (SAP), which iPhones do not.

    Is there a way round this issue? Thank you!

    Re: PCM-iPhone connection

    I have no problem pairing my iPhone to the PCM , so my phone calls go  through the PCM  .... but do I have option 666 ?

    Re: PCM-iPhone connection

    I have option 666 telephone module and and an iPhone 4 which pairs perfectly, transfers all the contacts to the PCM, and all the music I have on iTunes through to the PCM as well. I have the optional  universal audio interface (option 870) which may make a difference

    I have the UAI too.

    Option 619 "preparation for mobile phone" appears compatible with iPhone according to thePorsche Compatibility Guide at porsche.com , whereas Option 666 (which the higher Option) does not.

    Perhaps, at the workshop they could make 666 behave like 619 using PIWIS

    @DC, when the car was prepared for you, did you mention that you wanted it compatible with iPhone, so perhaps they changed something in the coding?

    No I didn't tell them, if I recall correctly when we collected the car had my work phone,  which is a boggo standard Nokia. Similarly with the Cayman, which only had "preparation for mobile phone" option, that connected flawlessly to the iPhone as well. With both cars (Cayman had PCM 3.0 as well) I set up both phones at home.

    When I got my 911 delivered the dealer asked if I had an iPhone and then got the mechanic to do an upgrade.

    Another possibility has just struck me reginos, our 997 was not new when we purchased it, so maybe the previous owner had it set up for an iPhone?  Smiley

    Re: PCM-iPhone connection

    Thank you! Does the system currently work with both the iPhone and the simple Nokia and with the same functions available?

    Dumb question: Do you have the latest PCM software update installed?

    Re: PCM-iPhone connection

     I presume yes. They did several updates since new.

    Yes, no problem. All my work contacts transfer from work phone (Nokia 300 now and 6300 before that) and all personal contacts from iPhone 4. Bluetooth, phone control from PCM all fine.

    Car is due major service in September will get them to check PCM and Nav updates then. BTW, amazing how prices vary here for servicing, over £300 difference between the 3 dealers I got quotes from.  Smiley

    Thanks! I'll visit the importer when they open after the holidays. It's a good starting point to know that it works on comparable cars.
