PCM1 Radio Code - How to obtain?

Disconnected the battery while I was away for a few weeks to help preserve it, and discovered the Radio Code I paid a dealer to get for me a couple years back isn't where I left it.

I have the PCM1 Navigation head unit.

Can this be obtained without a Porsche-specific diagnostic tool? If so, where should I look for the serial number needed to look it up/decode the cypher?

Local dealer wants an arm and a leg, and with a newborn I don't have time to drive to another dealer.

Thanks!

Bump Vehicle Identification sticker uploaded. Can this be used to "decode" lookup the radio code?

Make friends with someone with a piwis, otherwise you are probably SOL

www.BeckerAutoSound.com or 201-773-0976

They repair Becker PCM, CR and CDR radios. I bet w/ the model # and serial # they can find it for you. It might cost a few dollars, but worth it.
