PCM is your central information and communication system. It is powerful and multifunctional, yet easy to operate.
The focal point is the intuitive 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen. Almost all functions can be controlled with just your fingertips, although conventional rotary pushbutton controls are still provided. Radio functions include up to 42 memory presets, dynamic autostore and the FM dual tuner with RDS diversity, which continuously scans in the background for the best signal.
The CD/DVD drive plays CDs and audio DVDs and is MP3-compatible. Audio playback of video DVDs is also supported. A six-disc CD/DVD changer integrated into PCM is available as an option.
A navigation module with high-speed hard drive is included with PCM. For route guidance, it is possible to select between a 2D display and a 3D perspective. In some regions, even land and buildings can be displayed in 3D. Split screen mode enables you to view two functions at once, such as the current navigation map and a list of symbols that represent the next navigation instruction.
An electronic logbook is available for PCM as an option. It enables automatic logging for every journey of mileage, route distance, date, time, starting location and destination. After you have downloaded your logbooks from the PCM via the USB or Bluetooth® interface, you can evaluate the data on your home PC using the software supplied.
To get what you want, you like to get straight to the point. Almost all of the functions of PCM can be controlled using the optional voice control system with word-by-word input. The menu item is read aloud exactly as it is displayed on the screen and the voice control system recognizes commands or sequences of numbers, whoever the speaker. It then gives an audible acknowledgment and carries out the functions you request. There is no need to ‘train’ the system.
A standard Bluetooth® interface lets you connect your Bluetooth(R) enabled mobile phone to the PCM with Handsfree Profile (HFP), allowing you to recieve and place calls. Basic functions can be controlled via PCM or the optional multifunction steering wheel.
