Along with the introduction of a new engine on the Macan, porsche also offers a new infotainment system for the Cayenne, upgrading the current one, which is on the market for a long time. 

The Porsche SUV is now better connected through its new Porsche Communication Management system (PCM) that will be standard in all Cayenne models in a high-resolution seven-inch touchscreen. The redesigned user interface enables intuitive and smartphone-like operations. When the proximity sensor detects a user input, relevant menu contents are shown, which the driver can control by multi-touch gestures.
 
Bluetooth, USB and SD card interfaces make it possible to integrate smartphones and memory media. Also new is the option of connecting an iPhone via the PCM to use Apple CarPlay.

The new navigation module is included in the Cayenne as standard. It has high-resolution map display and, for the first time, 3D representation in some regions. Navigation can also be started by voice control. The optional Connect Plus module uses real-time traffic information. The online services Google Street View and Google Earth can be used for precise visualisation of details along routes and in built-up areas.
 
The use of PCM as a Wi-Fi hotspot and even more extensive integration of smartphones is also available. Also new is the Porsche Connect app. For one, it lets users transfer destinations to the PCM directly from a smartphone to start navigation.
 
The Porsche Car Connect app is also included in the Connect Plus module. This app lets users control certain vehicle functions remotely from a smartphone and access data such as the car’s fuel level.
