Could you please elaborate what you mean by approved Porsche unit? From the images on your website, the device you sell appears to be an aftermarket product that plugs into MOST, which is what Dension and Tooki do.

Does that mean we need some kind of software update by the dealer for the car to recognize the phone function is installed?

Thank you for the explanation. So, to clarify, Porsche has given official approval to this device?

NiTiv is on a distinguished road
My cousin had his Tooki in his Porsche Cayenne '08 - It still works today perfectly with all the current technology ---

Tooki or Dension for full featured integration. We've carried these products for nearly six years. Depends how much you want to spend, how well you want it integrated, and any other features you may wish to have.

The Dension (we have been the primary distributor on this for the first five years of product life) is the defacto standard for ipod and bluetooth integration for Porsche ('03 through '08). Not to say other products won't work. Just that we have the largest installed base of Dension product for Porsche, and it offers iPod, USB, Aux and Bluetooth, for a very reasonable price.

Dension worked directly with Porsche for the first year of development of the product, and we worked directly with Dension for that year providing info for them on the US Porsche market.

I have no knowledge of the iTronic product but it appears to be similar to the other major players (mObridge, Tooki, Dension). And if it does what it claims, it appears to be a very nice product as well.

Budget may play a role too - for our current discounted sale price of just north of $500 customers get iPod, Bluetooth, Aux and USB. For many of the other products, pricing for this package would be $800 or more.

Again, not suggesting one is better than another - you make your own judgement.

Best of luck with your decision either way. If I can be of any help, feel free to email anytime: eric@bumperplugs.com.

What ever you decide to buy, don't spend a lot of money on it. My experience is the entire Porsche Bose sound and Navigation systems aren't worth a $hit. Adding features to them is just throwing good money after bad. Dension is sold as an un-numbered Porsche part at some dealers. It works kinda sorta when it wants too. I've had three replaced (underwarranty) by both the dealer who gave up and sent it to "the" best installer in San Diego. Same result. Not to slam Eric. He makes great plugs.
