Default MY17 PCM Software update coming in october

New PCM major software update will be released to workshops in october for MY17 Macan. It will be an update performed on all MY17 Macan produced before a certain build week (which week I don't know, but VIN will identify if the update is applicable or not). Update has to be done by the local workshop and customers can either book an appointment to get it updated or it will be updated as a TSB on next service occurance.

The update contains a very long list of improvements and bugfixes according to my source which is great news.

Also, at least here in Europe there will in october be a new owners manual released that will be replaced for all owners. Apparently some error(s) in there that are severe enough for Porsche to replace the entire manual. What the errors are I'm not aware of. If this affecting US as well I'm not sure about either.

Thanks, @Luke . Great news. ios 10 is being released on 9/13 which will update Carplay features. Hopefully the October PCM update will fix voice control and add Apple Maps in dash.

This would be awesome but knowing Porsche I am skeptical.
