After they`ve camed with a brilliant idea of introducing a navigation system on vintage models in Europe, Porsche is now expanding the retrofit also in the US. Classic sports cars made by Porsche can now be equipped with Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System in the US and also in Canada. 

This purpose-built unit combines a style reminiscent of the original equipment radios in these cars with modern digital technology. It fits into the DIN-1 slot used for decades in Porsche sports cars and is operated by means of two knobs, six discreetly integrated buttons, and a touch-sensitive 3.5-inch display. The new Classic Radio Navigation System also comes prewired with a lead for an optional SiriusXM satellite radio tuner.

It has black surface and two authentic styles of knobs (both supplied as standard) and bears the Porsche logotype, being suitable for sports car generations between the first 911 from the 1960s to the last air-cooled 911 (993 series, MY1998), as well as the 912, 914, 924, 928, 944, and 968 models.

The Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System comes with key features of today’s systems. In addition to smartphone connection via Bluetooth, the unit has low-interference radio reception, navigation, two USB ports, and interfaces for a variety of external music sources, controllable from the display. In addition, the Classic radio has an internal microphone and an external microphone. The integrated amplifier delivers 4x45 watts and can be connected either directly to the loudspeakers or to the original sound system using an optional adapter cable.

The Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System has been exclusively developed for Porsche Classic sports cars. Radio reception, for instance, has been optimized for the built-in antenna supplied during original production.

The device’s operating concept is based on Porsche Communication Management (PCM). It has undergone extensive testing at the Technical University in Munich to verify user friendliness, and numerous trial trips were made in the USA and Canada to test country-specific navigation. Drivers have a choice of arrows and two-dimensional or three-dimensional maps to display the route, and the maps are stored on a microSD card with eight gigabytes of memory.

The new Classic Radio Navigation System is available from authorized Porsche dealers.
