Simply connect your calendar to the vehicle and let it drive you directly to your next appointment, for example.
Using the "Calendar/Conferences" service, you can access your personal calendars at third-party providers from your vehicle. The calendars are linked directly with the Porsche ID across vehicles. In addition, you can access the calendar of a mobile device by pairing this device.
As part of the service, addresses can also be recognised in calendar entries and used directly as navigation destinations.
Direct dial-in into telephone conferences from an appointment is also possible in the case of supported appointment information.
When this service is active in the vehicle, the wireless interface for vehicle-related services initially logs into our system with your Porsche ID.
When the service is selected via the Porsche Connect App, login takes place via the PCM with your calendar from the Porsche Connect App.
If a calendar of a third-party provider is linked, a connection is set up to the respective provider via a calendar-specific QR code displayed by the PCM.
The calendar provider issues authentication keys which are stored in the Porsche system so that your Porsche ID account or your vehicle can access the respective calendar.
We require this information in order to assign your vehicle to your user account and to allow us to check that you are entitled to use the service. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
In addition, we also use this information together with the time at which the service was accessed (timestamp) for the purpose of creating a database for anonymised usage statistics. We store the information for a period of 12 months for this purpose. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in improving our service offering.
In order to display your calendar in the vehicle, calendar entries and corresponding content are transmitted to us by the third-party provider after the connection has been established. The content is then forwarded to your vehicle and displayed in the PCM. In order to provide you with other calendar functions such as navigation or telephone conferences, the calendar content is also processed for this purpose in our system. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
For transmission of your calendar information to the PCM, we use service providers who are commissioned by Porsche. Please note that the servers of the service providers on which data is processed in the course of the service may also be located outside the European Union or the European Economic Area.
You always have the option of deactivating the service in the system settings of the PCM (Porsche Communication Management = central control unit for audio, navigation and communication) of your vehicle. There is also the option of deactivating the service as part of the whole service group.
The functionality of the service may be limited or no longer available after performing general deactivation in the system settings.
