    PCM + Nav + Phone price

    Can anyone tell me the prices for these options?

    I dont have them specced at the moment, but I went out in my friends 997S yesterday (awesome) and now I want these options

    I'm not on commission from my local Porsche Centre - go for the PCM + nav don't pay silly money for the telephone module - buy a Bluetooth headset for Pounds60 Or if you want a proper installation the Nokia 610 for about Pounds300 fitted. Then you won't have to faff about with 2 x SIM cards or a second mobile number

    Re: PCM + Nav + Phone price

    Thanks for the price. I was sold the minute Ando's 997S told us to take the 3rd left off the roundabout yesterday (which was a right turn of course)

    I didnt think a standard bluetooth headset was legal, since you still have to use your normal handset. Same with those handsfree things that dangle from your ear

    As far as I know they are - not that I like them. But, you can have a properly installed hi-tech kit like the Nokia one for not much more than half the price of the telephone module, and it's far more advanced and a lot more convenient.

    Re: PCM + Nav + Phone price

    You can get a decent BT car kit for Pounds150 fitted such as Nokias CK-7W. My friend has just had one put into his new Golf GTTDi and says that it is fantastic. That's high praise as he's a real mobile phone geek.

    Ahhh, no-one understands roundabouts like us Brits, we're so good at them, that and queueing.

    The PCM phone module is actually pretty advanced, SMS, fax, memory functions etc but you're right about the two sim card thing, it's a real pain. I think more providers will offer a dual card system sooner or later (other than Vodafone) but don't hold your breath after some of the conversations I've had recently with Orange.

    Re: PCM + Nav + Phone price

    The biggest problem with the factory installed phone kits is two or three years later when u want to upgrade your phone. The factory kit will usually not be compatable with the newer phones.

    Re: PCM + Nav + Phone price

    The big difference here is that the kit is the phone.
    You take the SIM card out of your existing GSM phone (or get a second card) and insert it into the PCM.

    Re: PCM + Nav + Phone price

    I don't know whether this helps anyone but I've been talking to my dealer and their fitter CAN fit an aftermarket kit to the MOST system that mutes the radio and uses one of the car speakers. I've scheduled mine, a bluetooth kit, to be done prior to picking up the car - Pounds295+vat. Only one SIM card for me
