It's interesting... but notice they don't use the touchscreen through the whole video. That would suck if it's not touchscreen compatible!

Here is the link to the installation demo. It doesn’t show the touchscreen being used though which is really odd!




Found one that shows a demo USING the touchscreen.

I've ordered one of these kits - not the Unichip version, but the other - from China and it should be here in a month or so. I'll post some info after I get ahold of it..

I did the install in my 991 C4S with a PCM 3.1. Take a look:

BTW, this is a Unichip but through a UK reseller that sends detailed instructions and uses a Parrott mic.

This very well be the next thing I do to my Cayenne - The DIY is what unmotivates me to do this but it looks completely worth the time when done

Nice, I'll check it out.. My kit actually arrived today, way faster than expected, so I'm putting together all the info I can find so I have plenty of reference material.

Any info on the Parrot mic model they used? Looks like my kit came with a cheap little generic one.

I want to do this but I want to watch a forum member teach us how to do this for a novice installer such as I. The lady from China keeps emailing me to see if I want to purchase this.

It is by no means an easy install. The difficulty is probably a 9 or 10 out of 10 since opening of the PCM is required and you need to insert a circuit board. This is a video circuit board that intercepts the video (display ) of the PCM. The “ribbon” cables are delicate, so some experience and comfort is required.

I guess it's all relative, seems pretty straightforward to me, but I've got a background in this stuff. The only real issue appears to be the poor instructions because of the language gap, but then again, I haven't pulled anything out yet.

I plan to put the time in and do this install as professionally as possible, so I'll take some pics/video as needed, and write-up a good how-to so people can feel more comfortable in doing this themselves. I've started prepping things, and should be knee deep into this by the weekend.
