Try a Google search for electronic copies, or check eBay for hard copies. I've seen several Boxster manuals for sale there in the past.

Here's a link to the radio manual:

If you have the OBC, there's a wand on the left side, lower one. (US) you push it forward to access categories, pull back to select, (or vice versa), and up / down to scroll through options.

You basically customize the display lines. I have outdoor temperature, trip, and average mileage displayed.

that's the thing. if I press left or right on any nothing is showed, only if I hold press the time one it switches from km to miles and vice versa, and I can set the time, and reset the KM driven, I cannot find temp or any other option.

will I be able to change some settings on the car and program? such as when the locks will be automatically locked after acceleration, maybe some other settings or can I control the obc as well? and change some things or its just a diagnostic reader that's all, if not what device must I buy to change those
