A client from Baltimore contacted Westminster Speed and Sound about adding Bluetooth to his 2007 Porsche 911 Cabrio. One of the requirements was to leave the stock PCM2.1 Navigation system installed in the dash. What made this request tricky is that these cars use a fiber optic network for their entertainment system. It is called MOST, which stands for Media Oriented Systems Transport.
Fortunately, our team has been working with these networks for more than a decade now. After spending time getting to know the client, we suggested a piece from Mobridge called the M2Connect MOST. He liked our idea, so we set time to work on the Carrera S.
What we like best about this particular module is not the Bluetooth hands-free calling, which works great, by the way. It is the great-sounding music streaming that makes us happy. This module uses a Bluetooth 4.0 chip, giving the client much-better sound quality than most factory systems. You even get basic control over your phone through the Porsche navigation unit in the dash. Since this was a convertible, we mounted the microphone near the Sport Chrono display to improve the clarity of the client’s voice to people on the other end of a phone call.
