    USA Cayenne Nav-on System.Will it Work in Europe?

    Hello. Can somebody please let me know will the Navigation system of the Cayenne purchased in USA work in Europe? Also if there is a way to change the speedometer so it shows the speed in KM and not in miles. I'm transfered to Italy because of work and want to ship my Cayenne Turbo over here.
    Thanks in advance if somebody will have an answer:).

    I think you'll just need to purchase the correct navigation disc (dvd) or discs (cd). Do you have an operators manual? Try page 117. With the stalk contol on the right, use the center display by the spedometer to get to main menu>setting>units. km/h is available there.

    What I do know for sure is transporting vehicles overseas is a stress. I shipped my two vehicle to Switzerland and back, and probably wouldn't do it again (setting up transport, customs, inpections, insurance, etc, etc.). I'd lease in Italy. But probably like you, I didn't want to give up the cars of my dreams, so I shipped them. It all worked out, but it requires faith and patience.

    The PCM system should work in Europe too, you just need the Europe Nav DVD. The question is: what changes are required to make your car "streetlegal" in YOUR country in Europe?
    In Germany, the changes aren't dramatic (you need a speedo cluster with km instead of mls, etc.) but it really depends from country to country. The Navigation is no problem.

    Aren't the radio stations in the US only odd numbers? As in 105.3, 105.5, 105.7, etc., as opposed to Europe's even AND odd numbers (105.2, 105.3, 105.4, etc.)? Does Porsche build identical units for both markets?

    This was not an issue for the 1997 USA Land Rover and 1999 USA BMW I shipped to Switzerland. The radios figured it out back then, so I'd assume thy're just as "smart" today.

    Re: USA Cayenne Nav-on System.Will it Work in Europe?

    Hello:) I already shipped here my wifes ML55. Actually shipped it to Lithuania (much easier to do the customs and registration), so now it is registered and she is driving it for over 6 month in Italy. The car has EU lisence plates on it. And to buy a Turbo here in Italy is sooo expensive, specially if I have one already:). To sell my car in USA and to buy one here is a fortune of lost money. Can not afford. The shipping is easy - 3 - 4 weeks and about $1500 insured. I shipped already one car and the all the hose belongings, so I'm not nervous about the shipping. Was just wondering how to change it to KM and about the navigation. The navigation of ML does not work in Europe. Of course I tryed the local software:). The radio works perfectly, but I listen to the music 10% of the time I spend in the car - like the sounds of the car better. Also - wanted to put 22 inch rims (I have 20s right now), but heard that the ride will be too hard. Any comments?

    The radio is easy to sort out. If it is not inside the radio settings, it is a setting that can be done with the PIWIS computer.
