Data privacy information

Data privacy information for services: Navigation Plus Service

The "Navigation Plus" service enables you to use My Porsche, your Porsche Connect App or your vehicle's mobile phone connection to

  • retrieve current or forecast navigation and traffic information along your route based on your previous destinations and routes (navigation),
  • use real-time traffic information to display the current traffic situation on your route (real-time traffic),
  • add current satellite aerial photos to your navigation map (satellite map),
  • display any available street view images of a selected destination when searching for addresses (panoramic view),
  • update your navigation map incrementally on the basis of your current location and active route guidance (online map update). 


In addition, you can also use the "Navigation" sub-function seamlessly across all output devices.

For the "Navigation" sub-function, you can select, enter and save destinations and routes in the Porsche Connect app and in My Porsche in your vehicle's PCM. 

When you select the service in your vehicle, PCM (Porsche Communication Management, the central control unit for audio, navigation and communication services) initially registers with our system using the vehicle identification number.

If you select the service in My Porsche or via 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.

After the connection has been established, to determine the information you requested, depending on the sub-function;

  • for navigation, the current location, the current speed, the current direction of travel and, where applicable, active or forecast navigation destinations and the associated route guidance,
  • for real-time traffic, the current location, the current speed and the current direction of travel 
  • for satellite maps, your current map section based on the location of your vehicle and, if applicable, the other map sections along your route,
  • for panoramic views, the location information for your request, e.g. transfer the result of your POI search from the PCM of your vehicle directly to the servers of the service providers.

The data transmitted is used to determine the information you have requested. 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. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.

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.

For the Online Map Update sub-function, the servers of the service providers establish the map version currently used by your navigation system and the region to be updated,and check whether any new map material is available. If new map material is available this is incrementally transmitted directly from the external service provider servers to your navigation system.

The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.

In addition, the aforementioned information transmitted from your vehicle to service provider without any personal information can be used to improve the service or contribute to the services database.

The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in improving our service.

We use service providers commissioned by Porsche to provide the sub-functions of Navigation Plus. 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.
