Available as an option, the quadband GSM telephone module offers convenience and excellent reception. With a SIM card inserted directly into the integral SIM card reader of the CDR Plus or PCM, calls can be made using the hands-free facility. For even more convenience, the Bluetooth® capability of a mobile phone can be used to make calls through the SIM Access Profile (SAP).
Once automatic pairing is complete, the mobile phone’s aerial is switched off to conserve battery charge and the phone operates via the car aerial. Depending on the type of mobile phone, this gives access not only to the numbers on the SIM card, but also to the phone’s internal memory.
A selection of mobile phones can be controlled entirely using the CDR Plus or PCM, the optional multifunction steering wheel or the optional voice control system without the phone ever leaving your pocket. The telephone module also enables you to establish a Bluetooth® link with those mobile phones that only support the Handsfree Profile (HFP). In this case, the GSM connection is always established through the aerial of the mobile phone. The CDR Plus or PCM acts as a hands-free system and you can leave the mobile phone tucked away.
On request, a cordless handset for the telephone module is also available. Stored in the centre console storage compartment, it features a display and keypad. However, the handset cannot be used for Bluetooth® links established using the Handsfree Profile (HFP).
An optional mobile phone preparation is available to enable a Bluetooth® connection for those mobile phones that only support the Handsfree Profile (HFP).* This function also enables you to leave your mobile phone tucked away. The CDR or CDR Plus audio systems and PCM are able to control only the basic functions of the mobile phone. The GSM connection is established through the mobile phone’s aerial.
* Mobile phone preparation or telephone module in HFP mode: The use of a mobile phone inside a car may cause an increase in the interior electromagnetic field strength and, accordingly, in the electromagnetic radiation to which passengers are exposed. If a cradle is used to mount the mobile phone, the field strength in the passenger compartment can be reduced because the phone can be connected to the external aerial (feature depends on how specific mobile phones connect to the cradle). For information about the availability of a cradle for your mobile phone, please contact your Porsche Centre. The use of the telephone module for PCM via Bluetooth® SAP connection or with inserted SIM card prevents exposure to electromagnetic radiation as only the car’s external aerial is ever used.
