How connect pcm 4 to home wi it?

Post by Connoisseur » Wed Jan 13, 2021 7:29 pm

Have tried everything without luck. I understand that select a wi fi signal you go to and select ‘Porsche Connect App’ as shown here.

But instead the wi fi list coming up to allow selection of my home wi fi, all I get is what is shown below. Does anyone know what I need to do to get the list up?

After trying for hours this is starting to drive me mad😅 am wanting to update maps via wi fi as my signal is 300mb/s so quick, and at no extra cost.....

Thanks in advance

Have you tried: Phone button, OPT button, Set Phone, WIFI settings, activate WiFi if necessary, activate use external data connection, connect to external WIFI hotspot? You should see your home WiFi and you can enter the access details.

I should have added that the external SIM tray needs to be empty and the PCM phone function switched off before you start to search for your external wifi connection.

Apols for my late response. Thanks for the guidance, much appreciated. I will try out this morning having managed to escape work and domestic duties after a few intensive days👍
