The luxury automaker mentioned the update has improved the Voice Pilot as the user will find it easier now to access several functions which include news, the operating manual and in-car music streaming. The owners will also have access to Spotify through this system now. Spotify Premium customers can link their account to the vehicle using their Porsche ID and use the app as an additional media source, added the company.
For its electric vehicles, Porsche has improved the calculation of charging sessions in the Charging Planner. The optimised algorithm will prioritise charging stations which will offer the driver a higher energy output and will also plan charging stops more efficiently. The brand said these improvements too are based on customer feedback. The PCM 6.0 navigation system features a revised route monitor, on which relevant events can be individually displayed or hidden during the trip.
