Porsche revamped its digital services for smartphones and integrated My Porsche Essentials, Connect App and Car Connect App to create a combined app, called My Porsche app. The company also informed that in the coming months, additional apps such as the Porsche Charging and Porsche – Good to know apps will also be unified.

The new app will be compatible with Porsche vehicles from model year 2016. The app displays important vehicle parameters and can also be used as a remote control for certain functions. It will assist the driver with charging processes, contacting their dealership, scheduling service appointments and asking questions about the vehicle, the automaker said.

The My Porsche app will offer a wide range of functions for Porsche models with conventional powertrains, hybrids as well as all-electric sports cars. It will show the user the current fuel levels to start a charging process, Porsche added. As soon as the vehicle is connected to the application, it informs the driver of the status of the car such as the fuel or charge level, the current mileage, its location, the statistics of past journeys or the parameters of the VTS tracking system.

Through the app, users can also access digital user manuals and support videos. If the vehicle unexpectedly accelerates beyond the applicable speed limit, the app will alert the driver with a push notification. It can also lock and unlock the Porsche and control the air conditioning system and auxiliary heating of battery-powered vehicles.
