Porsche to launch new navigation radio for its classic sports cars

Article by Christian A., on February 25, 2015

Porsche is introducing a new navigation radio as part of its response to surging demand for a built-in device for classic sports cars. While the navigation radio features classic styling, it features modern technology. The navigation radio fits into the DIN-1 slot used in the sports cars and is operated through two knobs, six discreetly integrated buttons and a touch-sensitive 3.5-inch display.

The navigation radio easily blends into the dashboards of classic Porsche models thanks to its black surface as well as the shape of the knobs. The navigation radio also features the Porsche lettering and better fits sports car generations between the first 911 (1960s) and the last of the series with air cooling (mid-1990s), as well as the earlier front-engine and mid-engine models.

While it looks classical, Porsche’s new navigation radio contains all the key features that can be found in present systems. It has low-interference radio reception and precise navigation, and also has interfaces for a variety of external music sources that an occupant could control from the display. Likewise, one could connect a smartphone via Bluetooth.

The classic yet contemporary radio features a built-in microphone as well as an external microphone. It also features an integrated amplifier that delivers 4x45 watts, and can be linked up either to the loudspeakers or to the original sound system through an optional adapter cable.

Its radio reception has been optimized for the built-in aerial supplied ex-works while its operating concept is derived from on Porsche Communication Management (PCM). Maps are stored on an 8GB microSD card and are updated regularly.

A customer could avail of the new navigation radio from Porsche Classic Partners or Centres at around EUR1,184 including VAT.
