Porsche Cayenne updated to newest 7-inch PCM infotainment system image

The German automaker has decided to treat the Cayenne SUV range to a small update, introducing the most recent version of its Porsche Communication Management system (PCM) as a standard amenity across the entire line-up.

We recently told you the Stuttgart-based sports car luxury automaker has just introduced the base version of the Macan equipped with the four-cylinder engine in Germany and now we also find the company has decided to treat its bigger sibling – the Cayenne – to the latest version of the seven-inch PCM. The system makes use of a high-resolution touchscreen display with an optimized user interface that according to the automaker should be more intuitive and deliver a smooth, smartphone-like experience. It comes with support for multi-touch gestures and a proximity sensor to detect user input and bring up relevant menu content. The navigation software now for the first time comes with 3D representation (region dependant) and makes use of higher-resolution maps. For extra cash the owner can also have the Connect Plus module, while there’s also Google Street View and Google Earth implementation together with a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The newest PCM also uses the new Porsche Connect app for smartphones and is included in the aforementioned Connect Plus module. The latest PCM version debuted on the facelifted 911 and will also migrate to the new model year Macan and the 718 Cayman and Boxster.
