Ratings and Reviews
Terrible for charging
It is simply unbelievable that I would purchase a $130,000 Porsche Taycan and then have to wait around five to ten minutes before this app decides to display the charging station so I can kick off my charge, which is itself 20-30 minutes. It’s great that Porsche provides free charging, but with all the hassle of charging it greatly detracts from the experience of having a Taycan. I can start charging on my own at home, but that doesn’t help me when I’m on the road. Then there is the other Charging NA app which works better for finding and initiating a charge, but why should there be two apps that do the same thing? Get your act together Porsche, or demand more from whatever partner builds this terrible app!

Disappointed Porsche Diehard. Porsche needs to get this fixed ASAP
I currently own 9 Porsches including a Taycan Turbo. I also have owned over 25 Porsches over the years. Love the Taycan car but hate the car PCM software and the supporting applications like this one. Too many bugs. This is the first time where Porsche releases a product that is unfinished and needs major refinement. If porsche is serious about hybrid and electrical technology, they need to refine this application and the car PCM. As an example I have to wait for 20 minutes or longer, waiting for the e-stations to display on the map in this app, so I could select the charging station so I could charge my car, forcing me often to just pay for the charging with credit card, after getting tired of fiddling with this app to display the charging station. They appear then disappear as quickly as they appear, rendering the porsche advertised 3 yr free charging useless since you can’t easily access it through this app. This is not the Porsche I know and have known for so many years and grew to love. Perhaps I should have waited a bit before buying a Taycan. I hope they could fix the bugs in this app, and hopefully fix the car pcm buggy interface and soon before we loose faith in this new product.

I bought a 2020 Cayenne hybrid and I am a 26 Air Force engineer and I have never had this many problems for all the weapons systems ... apps .. software systems etc that I have ever worked with. I am even half German and it’s a total embarrassment that Porsche thinks they can get away with such garbage... connect app is anything but connect.. they are making changes to cars too fast and if they can’t get a simple app to work I am worried about what I bought which is 100 times more complicated than this app.. Porsche should be ashamed of themselves for even thinking about charging folks for this a year after you purchased your car...
I have never been so disappointed in my life...
I don’t need to repeat what others have already said...
Truly a sad day for the company !!!!!
Signed disappointed and left with a worthless app...
Take heed Porsche and FIX YOUR APP!!! B
I have a friend who works for The NY Times and I have documented every detail that is wrong..
it’s going to be published because After reading
All the feedback Porsche thinks they can answer with the same response and get away with it..
not here because now everyone will know how they just don’t give a dam...
You can’t expect people to buy expensive cars and be left in the dark...
Not done yet!!!!!
