Heading for sunnier climes next week - this time I've borrowed a Vinci Telepeage Dongle (for want of a better word)?which needs fitting to the inside of the windscreen - anyone know if there is a place it needs to go on a 997- I've read that some windscreens interfere with the signal ?

Cheers

The area at the top middle of the screen (behind the rear view mirror) is usually favourite. My Range Rover has one of the interfering screens and my peage tag works from that space I mentioned

Just take it easy through the drive-throughs for the first few times until you get used to what speed you can take them at.

As stated above, or it works perfectly well by just holding the thingy up in your hand in the centre of the screen as you drive through.
Worked perfectly well last week.
Enjoy your trip. Thumb

+1, great devices, we use them with lots of different drivers on trips to the alps.

There is no drama to using them, but Alex is spot on about getting used to speeds at the automatic barriers, especially the outside (usually left and marked in orange) 30KMH "fast" lane.

Use a tag and cash lane (middle ones usually) at the first line of booths on each trip to make sure it still works.

+90% of the booths have tag sensors regardless. Even if you do mistakenly pick the cash only ones, just take the ticket and present it with your tag at a manned booth if there is one at the next line of boots down the road.

Enjoy the adventure...try not to hold your breath as you approach the auto barriers, but everyone does Grin

You don't need one, its just a convenience thing. You can still pay at the booths as you normally would.

Depends on how many autoroute miles you are doing, this time I'm driving the car solo so it stops the need to lean right across the passenger seat to pay the toll. We will be up and down the autoroute behind Nice a few times and from memory they are very busy tolls.

You won't need one on the Autobahns in Germany as they are free , for Switzerland you need a Vignette which you can buy at the border or use one of the online toll companies to buy one before you travel.

Have a great trip in August ... What's your route ? Up the Italian lakes and the Swiss passes to Stuttgart

Just do they pay booth salute. I had one for several cars and would just hang it out the window as you fly by.

I might be biased but I tend to agree. I haven't seen another one in the wild, even though it was the colour combo Porsche chose as the launch combo, linking it to.the Carrera GT.

It was Ryan from Beverly Hills Porsche Video ( Internet search for GT Silver and Cocoa) which swung it for me as I was buying the car from a distance ...

Great devices as they pay for themselves the first time you avoid a kerbed wheel trying to get too close to the barrier, the time you don't crick your back leaning out of the bucket seat, the time you avoid whacking the door on the opposite booth when you resort to getting out and walking round and in the avoidance of abuse when you do the last one.

Oh, and also in avoiding the moaning from the left hand seat when you ask your partner to do it more than once! "This car is too low, I can't reach" (Although, to be fair, this was when we were in a Lotus Exige rather than a limo Porsche)

Apart from the above, I wouldn't bother.

If you don't decide to invest in one, take care with what credit card you use at the booths.

The last couple of years I have had issues........after the 3rd time of presenting the card they stop working because you have not used a pin number so they block the card.

Banks being ever so helpful tell you to go to an ATM with PIN facilities and unblock it.
What they DON'T tell you is that NO ATM in France will allow you to do it and a visit inside to speak to a bank teller is of no use also.

Debit cards seem to be OK (but of course they're the ones that charge you for foreign transactions) Gun Fire
