With an improved layout, the Porsche Communication Management 6.0 (PCM 6.0) has a new font style, revised icon designs and colour scheme. The Voice Pilot voice assistant will be able to understand instructions in familiar language and the navigation system will be able to carry out the calculation of information and display them at a quicker pace, taking into account real-time traffic information.
This system empowers the driver to carry out commands without taking their hands off the steering wheel or eyes off the road by simply saying “Hey Porsche”. It can increase or decrease the interior temperature as per the user’s instruction. The massage seats and ambient lights can also be controlled similarly. Voice Pilot that permanently stays online, will continue to learn new phrases which will upgrade the system to support the driver more.
