Description

You would like to avoid the rush hour traffic? Or simply drive your Sports Car without hold-ups? Real-time Traffic Information helps you achieve this. Your navigation system uses current GPS data in order to optimise your route on a minute-to-minute basis.

The current traffic flow is indicated in the map view: from green for light traffic, yellow for congested roads and red for traffic jams. Not only does the service provide you a more accurate estimate of the trip duration and arrival time, it also helps you arrive earlier and more relaxed.

Detailed data protection instructions for this service can be obtained from the product information in the Connect Store.

Data privacy information

Using the "real-time traffic information" service in your vehicle's navigation system and a wireless connection you can call up real-time data for the current traffic situation.

When the service is selected the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system of your vehicle initially logs into our system using the vehicle identification number. We require this information to assign your vehicle to your user account and to be able to check its authorisation to use the service. 

The provision of real-time traffic information is done by an external service provider that exchanges direct movement and traffic information with the PCM of your vehicle. Please be aware that the servers of the service provider on which data is processed as part of the service may be located outside the European Union or the European Economic Community. So that a connection can be made to your PCM a time limited authorisation key is exchanged between the servers of the service provider and your PCM. However, Porsche does not transmit any information to external service providers that can be traced back to your person (e.g. name, Porsche ID or vehicle identification number).

Once a connection is made your current vehicle position, any active route planning and your current speed and driving direction will be transferred to the server of the service provider. Using the vehicle position and the active route the service provider determines traffic information for areas relevant to the trip area and transmits this to your navigation system. Your vehicle position and current speed and driving direction can be saved by the service provider and later used for improving the service and to generate real-time traffic data.

Porsche has no access to the movement and traffic information exchanged as it is exclusively between your navigation system and the service provider.
