    Where is the Navigation Unit stored on a Cayenne?

    Out of curiosity. Just looking at getting a Cayenne for the wife and can't decide whether she needs Sat Nav, but if I don't it could hit resale values.



    Re: Where is the Navigation Unit stored on a Cayenne?

    On Cayenne Generation I with DVD based Nav unit, the DVD player is under the passenger seat.

    I strongly believe, Navigation is a MUST on a Cayenne.

    I would not consider buying one without.

    For sure there are much cheaper alternatives like TomTom BUT they are not as good as the indash option.

    Re: Where is the Navigation Unit stored on a Cayen

    Thanks. You're right of course but it's an expensive option at over Pounds2k.

    Re: Where is the Navigation Unit stored on a Cayenne?

    These days you can pick up a top of the line navigation system for 1/10 of the cost of a PCM. PCM is only worth it when an entire car having that option is significantly discounted.

    Re: Where is the Navigation Unit stored on a Cayenne?

    I have PCM 2, its the worst Nav system ever made. Save your money and buy a TomTom. I take my wifes with me and its ALWAYS better than the factory unit and MUCH easier to use.

    I will never buy a factory Nav system ever again.

    Also your wife will never be able to use it. If its a Generation 1 unit it is CD based using the InDash CD, the Generation 2 unit has the DVD (05 on)

    Thanks for the replies.

    I had a demo Cayenne for a day today which was an 07 model and it had Sat Nav. (Stored under the drivers seat in the UK). I have PCM 2.1 in my 997 and to be honest for what I use it for it works quite well. This seemed to be the same version in the Cayenne.

    Over all impressions is that I love it. It was only the 3.6 v6 version but it seemed to be sufficient for my wife to be fair. The "biggest" downside for me (and wife) and the reason we won't be getting one is the running costs.

    Fuel in the UK is as you all know a complete rip off and I'm not 100 percent sure of how many miles I did (About 250 to 300 I guess) but put Pounds70 of fuel in the tank. I was running in sport mode all the time, preferred this and was far more fun. I think about 16 to 18 mpg was about average (lots of motorway driving too). I dread to think what mpg the Turbo does. Bet it's as bad as a Hummer!

    Gutted really as I really like it.

    The funny thing is the dealer said to me, get an S as the fuel economy is about the same, or very close.

    Re: Where is the Navigation Unit stored on a Cayen

    Navi is pretty useful, but not as good as the aftermarket ones available for much cheaper. Garmin/TomTom for example.

    I think buyers know that as well and it will be a minimal impact on resale. It is a good option to have though, many more buyers want it than don't want it.
