New 911 with Google Maps: Standard Nav
Porsche is making a momentous stride towards enhancing their clients’ digital experience by introducing plans to incorporate Google services for the direction, verbal command, and an extensive app environment into their upcoming car events. Manufacturing of such cars is anticipated to initiate around the mid-decade mark.
The integration of various Google offerings, including Google Maps, Google Assistant, and a vast selection of software available on the Google Play Store, will soon be made possible. Consequently, Porsche is confident that fans of the brand can stay assured that their beloved Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment platform will remain fully intact, in addition to receiving regular over-the-air updates to ensure it stays modernised.
“Our customers are realizing their dreams with our vehicles. Not only do they appreciate the timeless design and outstanding performance, but they also want a seamless digital experience,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, expressing his enthusiasm about the integration of platforms and apps that customers already use on their end devices. “We have an open attitude and are developing new innovations together with leading technology partners,” he added.
Just recently, Google disclosed information regarding changes to Android Auto and Google Built-in. These remarkable updates bring forth new applications and features for in-vehicle amusement. Motorists can without difficulty join their planned video conferences or gatherings, appreciate films & programs of their preference, surf the internet and a plethora of other activities just from the comfort of their car’s interactive monitor.
Google Equipage, an array of bridled amenities and applications, has grown to include Amazon Prime Video. At the start, this functionality was just accessible in certain vehicles such as Renault, Volvo, and Polestar, but it is forecasted that it will spread out to additional automotive trademarks soon – most likely arriving on Porsche cars by 2025. Additionally, the release of Vivaldi, a novel net browser, will give customers a more advanced internet-browsing experience. Significantly, both of these apps can only be accessed when the car is not moving.
Recently, the 2024 Nissan Rogue has ushered in a new era of in-car technology by offering an integrated Google-based infotainment system with a five-year plan as part of its package. As an additional perk, the SL and Platinum model now feature upgraded infotainment systems fitted with 12.3 inch touchscreens. This system allows users to access popular Google services such as Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play without the need for smartphone pairing.
