If you’re having trouble finding your Porsche, Porsche Connect can point you in the exact direction that you parked. It can even run diagnostics to tell you oil, gas, and tire pressure levels!
While you’re on the road, you’ll be able to take advantages of the services of the Porsche Connect system such as syncing your phone with Apple CarPlay or getting real-time traffic information.
