When installing a New Android device, I stumbled ober a to me yet unknown Porsche App.
On the iOS App Store the app has no version history – meaning its in its first release. I think you've stumbled upon a brand new app.

Great find! There was a rumor here that one is coming soon

Can’t tell from the picture in the manual exactly where it would get installed. I assume next to the mirror? Any ideas?

Also, there is a rear camera too according to the app.

hmmm - makes me wonder about retrofit possibilities - looks like it’s going to be an add on for cars that have “the dock/connecton point” - pure speculation on my part…

see from the english manual below

The rear camera is only available in conjunction with a standard dashcam preparation.

It showing up in the accessories catalogue gives me hope. Perhaps rear camera only if car pre-wired for it?

Though I’d figure out how to do that bit myself later!

Very nice find indeed! Heard rumours before.
Hope Porsche SW devs have done some QA on this one before release..

I hope that means it is only available when you first install the dashcam. Eg you can’t install just the front then come back later and say you want the rear one added. Just a hopeful guess since it is an add on

You mentioned a “dock/connection point”. What is that?

well from the pictures in the manual it clearly “slides” into place - so there must be a dock or connection point somewhere in the rear view mirror area...

The manual says it's 12v DC. Maybe that's why it's not out there. Another load on the 12v battery? or does it come with its own battery?
