A Deep Dive in to Porsche Communication Management

Back in 2001, BMW simultaneously showed the world the burgeoning capabilities and the pitfalls of modern infotainment with its iDrive system. In the intervening years, not all manufacturers have learned from BMW’s example, and not all infotainment is created equal. Cadillac’s CUE has been criticized for clunky operation. Ford SYNC covers the spectrum from near-useless to rather excellent, depending on model. Volkswagen’s current Car-Net is generally very good, but builds upon many years of trial and error. Porsche Communcation Management (PCM), may be the current industry leader in terms of ease of use and configurability. Even as featured in the base 3.0-liter V6 Panamera, the Porsche system shows a driver-oriented approach to system integration.

Driver-Oriented Infotainment

Infotainment systems that try to do too much can often over-burden the driver. A confluence of menus with a wide array of options doesn’t make life easier, it only serves to distract the driver from their primary job. Porsche’s system allows a deep level of configurability, allowing drivers to prioritize what the infotainment screen shows them. If navigation is more important to you than your media choices, then navigation can be given a more prominent place on the foot-long screen.

The system also controls many car functions, including not only chassis settings, but also climate control. Though not shown in the video, the system acts as the primary control for heating and cooling, in addition to controlling the configurable center vent.

PCM works in conjunction with the latest generation of Porsche Advanced Cockpit. The PAC replaces most of the car’s analog instrumentation, leaving just the centrally-positioned tachometer. The tachometer is flanked by a pair of 7″ screens, which are also configurable per user preferences. In addition to functioning as gauges, these screens can move critical information directly into the driver’s line of sight. A similar, though more limited, Advanced Cockpit has been available in the 991 for several years.

Though my preferences in in-car entertainment generally goes no further than a working radio, I appreciate Porsche’s approach. PCM’s integration of functionality, and emphasis on ease of use is an important compromise between what today’s consumers want, and simply driving.
