The Planner optimizes travel time by calculating the route, taking into account
the current charge state, available charging stations, and traffic information.
The Charging Planner service can be used to calculate the fastest or shortest route in your vehicle and in the Porsche Connect app, taking into account real-time traffic information and battery level.
If the calculated battery charge level at the destination is below a certain, defined value, the Charging Planner takes charging stops into account in order to ensure a minimum range at the destination.
In addition, you can also benefit from the automatic, timely preconditioning of the battery in order to make the best possible use of the maximum charging capacity available on high-performance chargers.
When you select the service, PCM (Porsche Communication Management, the central control unit for audio, navigation and communication services) initially registers with our system using the vehicle identification number. To enable a connection to be established to your vehicle's PCM, a time-limited authentication key is exchanged between our service provider and your vehicle's PCM. If you select the service via My Porsche or the Porsche Connect App, you register with your Porsche ID.
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 order to display the required charging stops of an active route, the current country information and the location position are transmitted to the relevant service provider after the connection has been established.
The transmitted data is used to generate information on charging stops. The information is then assigned to your vehicle by our system and transferred to your vehicle's PCM. Your data will be stored for the duration of the query for this purpose and will then be deleted.
If you use the Porsche Connect app for the request, the location of your device will be used instead of your vehicle location and the search results will be transferred to the Porsche Connect app. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
We use service providers commissioned by Porsche to display the charging stops. 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 your PCM. There is also the option of deactivating the service as part of the whole "Services with Geolocation" service group.
The functionality of the service may be limited or no longer available after performing general deactivation in the system settings.
