Whether it's the soundtrack to mark the end of a successful week at work or background music for a road trip with friends – you can look forward to every journey with great anticipation. Not just because of the
unparalleled dynamics in your Sports Car. The Radio Plus service is available for the first time in your Porsche. Radio Plus is a combination of the Internet radio integrated in PCM and automatic switching between the FM/DAB/online radio sources. Your musical accompaniment is uninterrupted, even if there is interference with FM reception.
Thanks to the integration of Internet radio in PCM, you can now access your favourite online stations. You can sort the stations by popularity, country, genre and language. You can also stream podcasts via the Internet. To use the integrated Internet radio, you need a WiFi data package or alternatively a separate external SIM card with data.
Data Protection Notice
Service: Radio Plus
With the "Radio Plus" service, you can access the integrated Internet radio in your vehicle via wireless network connection and automatically switch between the FM/DAB/Online Radio sources according to the quality of the connection. You can also retrieve information about your radio stations in your current station list, your favourites or shortcuts, e.g. DAB and FM reception parameters, online stream addresses, the current country, the current system language, the respective market and a mathematical image of the currently played audio (Audio Fingerprint) to identify the artist or title, online and stream the relevant radio station online.
When selecting 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.
We use service providers commissioned by Porsche to provide this information and the online stream. Please note that servers of the service providers on which data is processed as part of the service may also be located outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. In order to connect to your vehicle, a temporary authorization key is exchanged between the servers of the service providers and the PCM of your vehicle.
After establishing the connection, service providers use the request to generate the information about their current radio playback and, if necessary, an online stream and transfer it to the PCM of your vehicle.
By deactivating the PCM wireless 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.
