    unlock the offraod navi!!??

    Does anyone know, how to unlock the offroad navi?

    I know that it's nothing with software or so. It's just an unlock-code, you have to give in with some buttons, and you have to pay 250 Euros for it. So I think everyone can do it without paying, only with tiping in the code.

    The code is generated by the PiWiS system and is car-specific...UNIQUE. Pay for it or forget about it.

    Can you tell some more about it? Does it tell where to go when you are in the middle of the desert or so? I mean; what is offroad specific about it?

    It may not tell you where to go, but it can tell you where you've been. When you are off a mapped road it will track the path you take, so that you can return by retracing your route.

    I have ordered this but it hasn't come in yet. There are PAG part numbers for software and a manual. I'll give it a full review when I have it installed.

    When I retrofitted it, I was the first person who actually did it. We requested a special code for my PCM 2 based on the VIN number in the Porsche System at my dealer.
    Then, we connected the new PiWiS (successor to the PST2) to my car and entered this code in a special menue which allows to unblock the off-road navigation. Voila...it worked. No additional software needed and unfortunately I didn't get any manual. But using the off-road navigation is pretty intuitive and logic. I used it only once during my trip to Paris. We were travelling from our hotel near Disneyland Paris to a shopping centre. Because there were no traffic signs indicating the position of our hotel (newly built) and the new roads weren't on the Nav system map, I activated the off-road navigation. It worked perfectly. We got back from the shopping mall to the hotel in 10 minutes, it was so easy because we knew in what direction we have to go and I always saw if the distance is increasing or decreasing. Pretty nice toy and I'm sure it is much more useful for desert runs or some adventures in the wilderness.

    Ha!

    I wonder what it is I have on order? The parts man told me he did need to look up my VIN number to complete the order. I bet it is just a special code for unlocking. Well, that and a manual.
