CarPlay Coming to Future Porsche Models

Published On April 19, 2015 | News

It has been noticed on Apple’s manufacturer support list for its CarPlay platform that Porsche has been added as a partner.

Over the last few months Apple have been growing its list of manufacturers and aftermarket multimedia systems as well as the number of countries that will support CarPlay applications.

“The previously unreported addition to the CarPlay lineup came sometime in mid-March, according to Internet caches of the website. Porsche owner Volkswagen Group is offering substantial CarPlay support across its marques, including Audi, SEAT, Skoda, Suzuki and Volkswagen.

It is not yet clear how or when the Stuttgart luxury brand plans to build in compatibility, as the company has already developed a fairly comprehensive in-house solution called Porsche Communication Management. PCM offers the usual assortment of niceties like GPS navigation, voice control and digital audio, but bakes in advanced features such as speed limit indicators called up from data stored in the system’s navigation database.” states Apple Insider.
