In the heart of the city – at the heart of the action. All information about points of interest, such as restaurants, can be retrieved directly via PCM in the Search function thanks to Porsche Connect. In addition to the address and contact data, guest reviews of the restaurant are displayed when you have an active data connection.
You can enter search queries directly in the navigation menu of the full HD touch display or by voice input. With the integrated parking display, you no longer have to waste time searching for parking. Porsche Connect knows the multi-storey car parks in the vicinity, and if available, their current capacity and possible fees.
Need to fill up your Porsche? Porsche Connect will tell you where the nearest petrol stations are as well as current fuel prices. Or maybe you need to charge your Porsche? You can use the Finder to find charging stations and can even filter specifically for Porsche charging stations.*

Data Protection Notice
With the "Finder" service, you can use My Porsche, your Porsche Connect app, as well as your vehicle, to determine special destinations in your area, along your route or at your navigation destination via wireless network connection. You can also get up-to-date information about points of interest such as occupancy (parking lots), available charging stations (e-gas stations), current reviews (hotels, restaurants, attractions) and fuel prices (petrol stations), current opening hours, payment options and other information available.
When calling up the service in your vehicle, the PCM (Porsche Communication Management = central control unit for audio, navigation and communication) of your vehicle first logs on to our system with the vehicle identification number. We need this information to be able to assign your vehicle to your user account and to check its authorization to use the service. As a database for creating anonymized usage statistics, we store the service call in connection with your vehicle identification number and a time stamp for a period of 12 months. When selecting the service via My Porsche or the Porsche Connect app, you will be logged in with your Porsche ID.
We use service providers commissioned by Porsche to carry out the search and create search results. Please note that servers of the service providers on which data is processed as part of the service may also be located outside the Republic of Albania. In order to establish a connection to the PCM of your vehicle, a temporary authorization key is exchanged between our systems and the PCM of your vehicle.
Following the connection, the respective search term, the current location of your vehicle and, if applicable, your navigation destination and route are transmitted through our system directly to the respective service providers. The service providers determine the corresponding search results based on the requested search term and the location, destination and route information. Subsequently, the information is assigned by our system to your vehicle and transmitted to the PCM of your vehicle.
In order to avoid repeated requests for information from the service provider if requests by several users are identical, the search queries and content exchanged with the service providers as part of your request will be stored centrally for a period of 30 days and used for the assignment of corresponding requests and contents
Search terms entered in the PCM of your vehicle or in your Porsche Connect app are incorporated into the in-vehicle search statistics so that recurring search terms can be made available more quickly in a pre-selection. This search statistics can be deleted by resetting to factory settings.
By deactivating the PCM radio module in the system settings, you can deactivate the data exchange of your vehicle's PCM via the wireless network connection. As a result, the functionality of the service may be restricted or may no longer be available.
