I have this exact set up in my 997.2 and the constituent parts cost a lot more than that. Works really well. If you want to stream wirelessly its the way to go.

No attachment between me and the seller - just verifying it’s a worthwhile purchase.

I got one of these in November - seems to do the job though just fine (though I haven't used it a huge amount). The reason for acquisition - recent iPhones (other than the SE) do not fit in the cubby where the iPhone connector on a 997 lives (while plugged into a lightning adapter). Anyone with a 997.2 with the universal audio interface thinking of a phone upgrade over Christmas might want to think about getting this bought.

Isn’t this the same thing on Amazon for £73.99?

Not sure..good price if so just for the unit but the link said $87.99?? but either way it’s 35 quid for the cable for it to work in your Gen 2 from porsche dealership.

It is, but you will still need the porsche Y connector that easto is selling with it and they are over £30 on there own so I do think this is good value at £70 for both bits, Thumb

Get it chaps, but surely (on a gen 2) if you get the lead you only need a lightening to 30 pin adapter? Then you can play through your device with the correct display on the PCM 3.
As with this info ( his music choice is awesome 😎) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UsLX1sHygmk

So Is the bovee more for gen 1 Question

Not really GEN specific as far as I’m aware but you are right - I use one of my old iPods occasionally, however my iPhones which have most of my tunes on and Spotify don’t have a 30pin
This is the best way to stream blue tooth music. If you don’t need / want to do that then you don’t need this. Just the cableic as far as I’m aware

yes if you want the hassle of keep connecting and disconecting it , the bovee allows you to leave your devise in your pocket and it connects via bluetooth with full functionality. For me thats what I wanted as I use the car daily and am in out out of it regularly .I use it to stream spotify to the PCM3 so I can play any music I like Thumb

As I pointed out earlier - with the 997.2 universal audio, unless you have the iPhone SE (or the earlier 5 or 5S) then the phone doesn't physically fit in there with the cubby closed while connected to even the short wired lightning adaptor. Tried it with the X and that is most certainly a no.

The Bovee is the solution to ever expanding size of phones in the 997.

I have the Universal Audio interface in my 997.2 but had to shell out £30 for the 30pin to lightning adaptor, only to find:

1) my iPod Touch (smaller than the iPhone) now doesn't fit the cubby hole with the adaptor attached, annoying but not a massive problem as I am using one of those tacky pads to keep the unit in place on top of the armrest

2) The interface does not always recognise the iPod when plugged in. Resolved by unplugging and plugging in the Porsche cable a few times, then it works - still inconvenient and annoying.

3) Biggest issue, even when I get the interface to work it does not charge the iPod, only synchs the music, so eventually the battery will die as I have nowhere to plug the charge lead. It both synchs and charges fine in my Volvo and Audi, but the Porsche behaves the same with my old iPod classic when not using the 30 pin adapter so it seems to be a Porsche interface problem. I could use the 3.5mm plug in the UAI but then cannot control the tracks/playlists etc. Anyone else had this problem or found a solution?

However, if the Bovee works as well as suggested it could be the answer to all the problems. Does it attach to the standard 30 pin plug in the UAI?
If it is straight plug and play from there it could be the miracle I am looking for.

Thanks for any advice.

Fed, you sound like you have experienced what the rest of us also found, I think the bovee will sort your problem , I actually stopped using the ipod and now stream either my music library or spotify premium directly from my phone to the bovee and into the PCM3 so I now have all the music in the world ever in my car Grin Grin Thumb make sure you buy the one for a Porsche with the 30pin connection Thumb

Thanks Phil.

I like my music and so do not have enough storage on my iPhone for my library so I bought a 128 ipod so I could download any music I wanted from Spotify. I'm old school so still a bit dubious about streaming especially when abroad!

I read a few reviews of the Bovee (maily Audi users) who complained of poor call quality and lower music quality when using the phone. Have you expeienced this?

Also, I assume I can synch my phone to the PCM as well as the iPod via the Bovee at the same time?

Thanks
Grant

Hi Grant, yes I pair the phone to the PCM directly for calls and use the bovee to stream music from my Phone , the only issue I see from streaming from an ipod is keeping the ipod charged but thats if you were leaving the ipod in the car permanently. if you were taking it with you and charging it as you would a phone and then it bluetooth connects when you get in the car then I dont see why that wouldnt work for you. re the quality of music well yes compressed music will never be quite as good as listening to a CD or live lol . but there is no difference between listening to compressed music directly from an apple devise or via bovee IMO. hope that helps Thumb

Thanks Phil.

If I am using bluetooth and not plugging the iPod into the UAI I have the lighting socket available to charge from the power socket in the car, so problem solved!

Shame I wasted £30 on the 30 pin adaptor, but hey ho, you live and learn.

Thanks for your help.

If you don't have one of these I'd thoroughly recommend them.

I use one with my iPhone X, which in turn has a Pitaka case and Magmount qi holder/charger to sit on in my 911.

This means charging and PCM connectivity taken care of wirelessly.
