Porsche’s classic radio devices are pretty cool, but that is the problem-they are outdated.
The archaic interior electronics of a classic Porsche are often considered its worst feature. Especially by those who have thrown all of their old mix tapes.
In this article, find the alternatives to the classic sound equipment you can find in your Porsche.
About Classic Porsche Radio: Newer Versions
There are several notable features that Porsche’s classic radio has.
Keep in mind that those are features you can find on newer Porsche versions, but we will list them so we can have a standard on what to look for.
For example, the classic version is tailored to fit perfectly in Porsche’s interior & dashboard frame. The beauty behind it gives Porsche the last touch to a stunning and classic vibe.
Apart from the mesmerizing beauty, you can choose between the two knobs for vintages or classics. Options, oh, options! We don’t mind them, to be fully honest!
Porsche promises ease of using the radio because they have the best technicians working on it at a Technical University in Munich.
You can also click and use the radio through the knobs and buttons, but recent cars also have the touchscreen option, which gives luxurious vibes. There is also a knob for light opacity, so say goodbye to overlighted radios!
Your Porsche radio will also include the latest navigation technology, with an integrated GPS navigation system, which is a must in every car.
More about the navigation system; there is a 3D and a 2D option for route guiding, with the arrow display allowing you to move according to plan every time.
Do you want to include your music? That’s not a problem at all! There are two available slots for micro SDHC cards and micro SD cards with 4GB of space, so feel free to use them.
We can’t forget the FM/AM, MP3, and Bluetooth (from which you can make calls and get calls), controlling the phonebook, etc.
Wow! There is so much going on!
Of course, if you want to change your radio, you probably don’t have the newest Porsche versions, so this list is only to think about what you need and what could be fantastic.
