Hi,

More accurately, does PCM Nav come with CDR+?

I want CDR+ for $1700, but if PCM includes CDR+ for $2900 then might as well get PCM for an extra $1200. Selecting PCM excludes CDR+, leading me to believe that it's included. Specs read about the same, but there is no specific mention.

I really just want a better audio system, and planned to skip PCM, but if it's only $1200 more then I'd just get both.

Anyone know? Make sense?

Thanks

PCM adds additional car electronics (don't ask me what though) and Nav to CDR+.

PCM traditionally includes Navigation, CDR+ does not include Navigation.

CDR+ includes HD Radio as well as the Sirrius/XM receiver, the PCM option does not include HD Radio or the Sirrius/XM receiver (it needs to be added as an option for about $1020 IIRC)

The S , GTS and GT4 comes with the 'Sound System Plus' as standard. Adding CDR+ will not change the sound quality. CDR+ also adds direct USB connection.

Is the antenna roof 'wart' only added if you get SiriusXM or HD ?. I know that my base cayman without CDR+ does not have the roof wart.

Interesting on the GT4 that the SiriusXM and HD have been unbundled from the PCM system. That is different from S,GTS and base Caymans.

Per the GT4 web site. Sound quality better change.

CDR audio system.

Fitted as standard, the CDR audio system with 7-inch colour screen is intuitive to control. It features a CD radio with FM twin tuner with RDS, 30 memory presets, dynamic autostore and speed-sensitive volume control. For quality sound, it boasts four loudspeakers and an integrated amplifier with a power output of 2 x 25 watts. The AUX interface in the glove compartment enables you to connect external sources such as a compatible MP3 player.

CDR Plus audio system.

The CDR Plus audio system, with nine loudspeakers and a total output of 235 watts, is available as an option. It also features an analogue and digital twin tuner, an MP3-compatible CD/DVD drive, a USB port and an AUX interface.

So, does PCM come with nine speakers and 235 watts like CDR+?

The nine speaker / Sound Package Plus appears to be standard on the GT4. CDR+ looks like the same head unit as the PCM to me, except no Nav function obviously.

The main reasons I checked the CDR+ option are the improved phone integration and higher resolution screen vs. CDR. Pretty hefty price @ $1700.

No, that's wrong. Again, taken directly from the GT4 web site, as posted above. http://www.porsche.com/usa/models/cayman/cayman-gt4/audio-and-communication/cdr-audio-system/

Understand that's what that portion of the websites says, but the configurator lists the 9 speakers as standard:

Go to the configurator and click on standard equipment. Also note that the configurator does not list an option for 9 speakers anywhere.
