- No Google Maps support
We'd like it even better if Google Maps were supported, and if you could use voice commands to control third-party apps."
"Apple's navigation software is the only option"
Cue in the reports of Macans in ditches and lakes due to horrible directions from Apple maps.Did you think apple would support anything but their own product! Apple maps sucks.
1. Porsche said they are not supporting Android auto because it requires too much diagnostic data to be recorded by Google and they don't want to share. I have no issues with Porsche; it is with Google requiring diagnostic data. They are all about big analytics
2. The new PCM has Google Maps and Street view built in so I don't understand the concerns. Google maps is better and the new Navigation system in the Macan uses it without data so you get Appple Car play AND Google Maps integrated.
Just to be clear, the new Nav in PCM is not Google Maps with the Google Maps user interface. It's is Porsche's own Nav system. It just uses Google Earth and Google Street View to give you 3D pictures of the locations/area.The apple car play and google maps are different functions. There is no collaboration across companies?
Google Maps is in the PCM navigation module. It uses data but not your phone's data unless you want it to . If not you will need a separate SIM after free period of 6 months or a year. Not sure on free period length. You can always tream Google Maps direction now using bluetooth interface (That is What I Do) you just want see maps on PCM.
Apple Car Play is separate front end interface supported by the PCM to your phone and if you are in the car play environment apple maps is available but this will use your phone data, although this data usage is small compared to streaming music and video.

Yeah that is more clear but the other feature that I was mainly referring to is the search features that are powered by google / internet. When you search for nearby "restaurants" it should be same results as when you do it on the phone App and not older libraries. It is internet powered with current data which should improve overall UI experience and biggest thing lacking in most current navigation units by manufactures.Just to be clear, the new Nav in PCM is not Google Maps with the Google Maps user interface. It's is Porsche's own Nav system. It just uses Google Earth and Google Street View to give you 3D pictures of the locations/area.
