    PCM 2 :AV switch !

    I have seen on the Cayenne's pcm 2 that there is the av switch. to what it serves? perhaps to mounting an external source? (tv or dvd player?). I 'd like to mount tv set on the pcm,it's possible usiing an aftermaket module lite alpine,philips..(not porsche obvious)?
    the problem is that i never seen a turer that mounts a tv set on pcm .....(techart uses alpine radio/dvd tuner , like others...).....
    thanks ,

    Sergio ......ciaooo!

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    Wow! That Gemballa interior is hard on the eyes! Notice though that they do not show the same image on the PCM screen. In many states of the US it is illegal to own a video system with a screen viewable by the driver. Texas is one example but there are many others. For this reason alone, I doubt we will ever see video on the PCM screen.

    I think the A/V button will be integrated with a seperate DVD player with either a flip down screen or headrest screens for rear seat viewing only. They A/V button will be for the DVD audio only.

    Because of the digital fiber optic bus I doubt we will see aftermarket systems that can integrate with PCM anytime soon.

    Can you watch video on these systems when the car is in motion?

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    in my bmw 330 ci (sold!!) the navigation system had the tv !
    when the car is in motion (10 km/h) the video becomes dark ....but cracking the tachimeter cable ...you can use the video always.
    it's dangerous ..so I prefer not using it during urban or autobahn trips ...but it works!

    Hmmm ... this might be legal here, I don't know. To my knowledge, no one is offering it that way though. There are a lot of video systems being offered by manufacturers but all that I have seen are for rear seat, or third row, viewing only.

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    Porsche is offering satellite radio for 2005 model through the PCM, maybe this is the connection site?! I don't know, just speculating.

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    Porsche soon offers a TV tuner for the european market. Introduction probably with MY 2005.
    I don't know when the rumored entertainment system will be introduced but I bought myself a SONY DVD System for my Cayenne Turbo for 600 Euro including a 7'' TFT screen.
    My little girls gets pretty fast bored during long trips and I think this is the best investment I made.
    Installation is flawless: the DVD player (which plays also MP3, Music and Video CDs) can be connected to the cigarette lighter in the rear, the headphone is wireless (infrared) and the TFT screen can be easily attached to the front head rest with a special mount arm. For 600 Euro...not bad.
    As soon as I have it installed, I post a picture.
    My Cayenne Turbo exits production on the 25th march (thursday) and with a little bit of luck, I have it around next Monday or Tuesday.

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    good RC!!! Your new baby is arriving soon! I'm happy 4 u!

    my dealer said last year that for the my 2005 there will be for the pcm2 the tv-turner. I hope that it will be in the tequipment catalogue soon .
    all the pcm2,cd charger,phone module,phone that I ordered are also avaible in aftermarket ...i 'm quite sure that the tv.mod will be in aftermarket too.
    and 4 u?

    ciaooo!!

    They try hard to make it retrofittable but I have to confess that a retrofittable MP3 Jukebox with a built-in 20 or 40 GB HDD would be MUCH MORE interesting for me.
    I have a 10 GB Jukebox in my ML55 for almost 3 years now and I'm a happy owner. I wish car manufacturers would be a little bit more geek friendly and install those nice gizmos in their cars. Audi will soon offer a MP3 Jukebox and other car manufacturers will follow shortly.

    MP3 RULEZ....YEAHHHHH.

    Just very recently it has now become ilegal in Spain too. Only GPS navigation is allowed to be displayed on the "dash" screen. I don't know if its a trend and will catch up later on in rest of Europe's legislations too but who knows, if it does it may not be retroactive so those already installed will be OK.

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    In Europe, the TV and Video option during driving is ILLEGAL but of course only for the car manufacturer (they're not allowed anymore to offer it during driving).
    All newer European cars have a software which shuts off the screen (sometimes showing a warning message) when passing a certain speed (usually 10 kph). This is EC law!
    There are certain companies who offer to remove this "restriction" but in case of an accident, the insurance company could make problems, especially if the driver was alone in the car. I know it is difficult to prove that the driver was watching a movie or TV during driving but you never know... I actually would love to have such an option for my wife, so she can watch a movie or TV during driving.
    I loved the DVD movie option on my E55 AMG because whenever I had to wait somewhere, I watched music videos.

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    I forgot to add something: rumors indicate that Porsche will offer a digital DVB-T tuner instead of an analogue tuner which has the advantage that the TV signal is more clear with better reception and doesn't fade. Disadvantage: DVB-T right now is only available in larger cities througout Europe.
    I'm not sure if this is only an option for Germany or the whole Europe because to my knowledge, analogue TV will dissapear (shut off) by the year 2010 due to a new EC law.
    I bet most people don't even know that...
    Well, the Porsche TV tuner of course shuts off the screen at around 10 kph but only for the front passengers. In conjunction with the rumored entertainment system in the rear, it will still be functional (of course only in the rear).

    I really hope I get the Cayenne Turbo in time for the Leipzig event. It would be pretty embarrasing to drive to Leipzig in a SLK.
    Right now I sleep pretty well at night because I have a LOT of work to do, my little daughter has a cold and my wife starts her new company next week. No need to worry about sleeping but I have to confess that I just can't wait to start the engine for the first time.
    I already reserved a license plate for me, I already have insurance, the only thing I need is the car documents and the key.

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    Congratulations, RC. Nothing like getting a new car!

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    I like red but this is too harsh, it is burning my retna

    Re: PCM 2 :AV switch !

    RC,

    Can you order Porsche Cayenne Turbo in Europe with manual trans?
