Hi People, first post apart from my introduction.

Does my MY2019 Cayman come with any form of breakdown cover/recovery? My dealer never mentioned it and I never thought to ask :( I can obviously give them a call but I thought I would ask, if it does, have you had a need to use it, is it any good, would you trust it? I had a new Land Rover which failed to start one morning and called their standard support line for new cars and within 1 hour a chap turned up in a marked up Discovery all knitted out with test equipment and tools. The Discovery and kit was immaculate, as was the chap who was very professional and went to great lengths to protect the vehicle etc when working on it. Got it going in 20 mins. I was well impressed (with the service NOT with the vehicle). At the other end of the scale I have called the other manufacturer support and had one of the local hacks turn up, covered in oil and not got a clue, expecting to climb into my vehicle. Which end is the Porsche support closest to?

Also in the glovebox I have found two grey plastic tags in clear plastic cases. Similar to the tags shops attach to high value goods. What are they for? Are they something to do with a tracker or for the PCM?

They're something apart the PCM.

One should work with one of the car connect app (remote services), the other with the Porsche security/anti theft option (security services)

They both need to be activated by your dealer.

I've activated the first one, but i think it's useless, because it has no influence on PCM functioning.

The second one, I didn't, because I've installed already another gps tracker

With regard to breakdown cover, assuming you bought from an Official Porsche Centre (OPC), you'll have Porsche Assistance. I've never had the need to use it personally.

The tags are for the vehicle tracking system, which presumably you haven't chosen to enable at present. Contact you OPC and they'll enable it if you want - at a cost / annual subscription.
