What Porsche Connect/audio package do you have on your car? I'm thinking if you don't at least have Porsche Car Connect/Apple CarPlay, you may not get the USB in the center armrest since that's primarily meant for CarPlay/smartphone integration.I've just got my 718 Cayman (in Canada) and noticed there is only a 12 volt connection in the armrest compartment. No USB. The only USB i have is in the glovebox - my ipod classic connects, a porsche logo occasionally comes up, then the PCM just displays 'incompatible device' or something to that effect. I've tried multiple original and aftermarket ipod cables.
I plugged a USB key in and that worked fine, except no playlists etc.
I put it down to the ipod being maybe a little too old now. Bit of a bummer. :-(
Yowza! I'd say that you definitely got your money's worth!I just realized its not even an ipod classic! It's an ipod video or 5th generation 60gb ipod. 14 years old! I think i've got my money's worth - time to update. Im going to get a 12v-USB adaptor to at least charge and i'll have a tinker with the ipod a little more.
My car also has Bose only (no carplay etc) and also does not have a USB in the center armrest. I was wondering about that as well when my car arrived and it makes sense that you only get USB in the center if you get carplay/connect... Woulda been nice to have it be a USB connector though. Seems like it would have been not too much work/additional cost to standardize on that.I got the base package, or no package really, with Bose stereo so no carplay/connect etc.. I was expecting USB in the armrest but i guess not.
