    PCM2

    Hi all -

    I ordered PCM with my Targa and, while I like the concept, the system has been nothing but trouble. PAG, in its infinate wisdom, placed the CD-ROM drive in the main console. Not only does this drive occupy desirable real estate, but my unit makes a relatively loud and extremely annoying clicking noise (much louder than the cutomary spinning noise we are used to hearing from a regular CD player, DVD player or CD-ROM drive). The dealer has attempted to fix this problem twice without any success. The first time they ordered a replacement CD for me and the second time they replaced the CD-ROM drive. After my second visit, I spoke with the service manager and we set an appointment for June 19 with a PCNA represetative. I met with him and he tried some "tricks" but the problem remains. Needless to say, I am pretty ticked off. The cost of this option is an outragous $3540 (all other NAV systems I've seen cost less $2000 and work without a hitch or peep).
    I have heard that PCM2 will be out in September or so, I am wondering if it can be retrofited into a 2002 Targa? Thank you in advance.

    Re: PCM2

    I'm sorry to hear about your PCM trouble. The PCM in my 996 Turbo works flawless but I can't say I love it too much. The phone option (not US/Canada) is one of the main reasons why I bought it.
    I'm not sure if the new PCM 2 will be retrofittable. It has an all new optical wiring and might not be compatible with the PCM wiring. Time will tell, as soon as first PCM2 equipped cars show up. I know that the PCM is pretty expensive but most optional Nav systems from the factory, no matter what the manufacturer of the car is, aren't cheap.
    Talk to the PCNA rep again, there has to be a solution for the loud annoying clicking noise. As for the extra drive in the main console, don't expect them to offer you a free PCM 2 install.
