    Mandatory telephone and computer screen?

    I have an M3 as my daily ride. My mistake was in ordering a telephone and navagation--I hate it. The 997 interior pictures show a telephone keypad and computer screen that look permanent. Are they?

    Yes.

    Did you read the Rennteam.com 997 Carrera S driving report?
    It probably answers most of your (remaining?) questions.

    No, the Navigation and Phone are NOT mandatory but the PCM system is (the TFT screen with the keypad and the nice little buttons ). Navigation and Phone are optional, you have to pay for it, same applies to the BOSE sound system and the CD-changer and of course the phone handpiece is also extra.

    From my own experience, the phone and navigation work pretty well and no software bugs either so far.
    Why didn't you like the phone and navigation on your M3?

    Ugly isn't it?

    check the car out in person and in black interior color. I've been repeatedly told, and have been subsequently convinced, that it looks much better when you actually see it.

    I "hate" that computer screen and keyboard look too, but have come to accept it.

    It's a shame because the car would look so much nicer and more aesthetically pleasing if they didnt shove that bizzy, ugly piece of interfacing into the car

    I need a Nav system and I need a phone, I'm pretty sure that aftermarket installs would look much better and more aesthetically pleasing.
    The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that Porsche delivers a "naked" system without Nav, Phone, BOSE or CD changer.
