ZENEC’s Z-N956 Infotainer awarded „Highlight“ Accolade

ZENEC’s new 2-DIN multimedia system with DAB+ and extra large 9″/22.9 cm touchscreen impresses in test by German magazine Car & HiFi (issue 03/2019)

With the Z-N956 the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC now has a 2-DIN DAB+ infotainer with an extra large 9″/22.9 cm touchscreen in its product range. The complete package of Z-N956 plus sat nav software Z-EMAP56-MH, obtainable separately, has now been tested by Car & HiFi in issue 03/2019, which was enthusiastic. The testers rated the price/performance as outstanding, awarding ZENEC’s new infotainer the ‚Highlight‘ accolade in the Top Class category.

EXTRA LARGE DISPLAY
An infotainer with a 9″/22.9 cm display that fits in a conventional 2-DIN slot? Impossible, said the Car & HiFi testers, „because a nine inch display is actually too large for the classic double DIN format.“ The journalists were even more astounded by the clever construction of the Z-N956. „ZENEC solves the problem by sitting the display a little in front of the actual DIN housing; so when installed it protrudes somewhat and can be larger than the installation slot. As a result it fits most vehicles.“

PRIME ENTERTAINMENT
„Complete infotainment in 9 inch format“ was the judgment passed by the well-respected testers on the multimedia section of the Z-N956. Apart from twin tuners with DAB+, FM, Bluetooth, HDMI, dual USB, multi-zone, DSP and many AV connections, other features of the Z-N956 include „comprehensive audio functions“. Thus the integrated signal processor offers a 10-band equalizer, crossovers, and 5-channel time alignment. „In addition, the Z-N956 can communicate well with smartphones“, was the praise from Car & HiFi. Android Auto is supported as well, offering the possibility of using Google Maps for navigation.

OPTIMAL SAT NAV – NOT ONLY FOR MOTORHOMES
Optional navigation software on a microSD card also allows the Z-N956 to be upgraded into a fully integrated sat nav system. Two variants are available to choose from: the Z-EMAP56 in-car version, and the Z-EMAP56-MH motorhome version tested by Car & HiFi. Detailed maps covering 47 European countries, more than 6 million POIs, TMC, TPEG free, together with free map updates for 3 years are offered by both sat nav versions. The motorhome variant, however, contains extras such as a camping POI database with information on approx. 20,000 different camping and motorhome stopover sites in almost every European country.
But that“s not all: „For those also with a larger motorhome the MH sat nav provides various preset vehicle profiles to make sure you are navigated only along suitable routes“, explained the journalists. „Important parameters like weight, height, length, width and so on can be individually set and then taken into account for selection of the route. This eliminates nasty surprises such as bridges that are too low or narrow local through-roads.“
But its detailed solutions also make the Z-N956 attractive for use in motorhomes: „Three cameras on the ZENEC can be connected to the Zenec to keep all corners of the vehicle in view when maneuvering“, the magazine explained. „In addition there is an audio channel for a microphone that is triggered by the reverse gear so that it is automatically activated as soon as reverse is engaged. Therefore you don’t just see but also hear what is going on behind the vehicle – very practical, for example, if you want someone to stand there and help direct.“

INNOVATIVE BLUETOOTH SOLUTIONS
The Z-N956 has an integrated Bluetooth module which, according to the Car & HiFi testers „enables comfortable hands-free calling and music streaming from a mobile phone.“ And the Z-N956 offers even more via Bluetooth. „The Z-N956 can also stream music wirelessly to a Bluetooth speaker or headphones. That makes a lot of sense in a motorhome. You can then sit in comfort outside at a stopover site and still enjoy the full range of media features of the ZENEC.“ This is particularly practical. So that you don’t have to go into the vehicle to control the music playback, the ZENEC can be controlled with an app from the touchscreen of the mobile phone „comfortably and intuitively“.

SUMMARY
„The Zenec Z-N956 is a premium naviceiver. Its large display makes it attractive for most cars, but particularly also for motorhomes“, was the enthusiastic verdict of the journalists, awarding the Z-N956 the ‚Highlight‘ accolade in the Top Class category.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2018 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.

Top Sat Nav for AUDI A3 – The ZENEC Z-E3150 Convinces Testers

„Great infotainment package for the AUDI A3 at a very attractive price“ is the verdict of the German Car & HiFi magazine (issue 2/2019) on the Z-E3150 from ZENEC, awarding it a „Highlight“ accolade.

The Swiss firm ZENEC is a specialist for in-car navigation systems and multimedia systems, impressive for their state of the art features and ease of use. With the Z-E3150, ZENEC now has an innovative retrofit solution for AUDI A3 8P/8PA models in its product range. The German Car & HiFi trade magazine has just thoroughly tested the new ZENEC in issue 02/2019, and is enthusiastic. A „first-class solution for the AUDI A3″is how the testers describe the ZENEC infotainer, awarding it the „Highlight“ accolade.

GREAT VEHICLE INTEGRATION
Like every model from the vehicle-specific ZENEC E>GO series, the Z-E3150 is also perfectly tailored for the AUDI A3. „The new ZENEC is a perfect fit in the AUDI A3 – visually, mechanically and electrically“, conclude the Car & HiFi tech journalists. „Interfaced with the vehicle electronics via the CAN bus, it supports comfort functions like connection to the driver information system (DIS), or the multifunction steering wheel, and the OPS and ECON Climatronic displays.“

FULL SET OF MULTIMEDIA FEATURES
Extra special praise was earned by the multimedia section of the AUDI specialist, according to Car & HiFi: „The Z-E3150 offers a wide range of features and functionality.“ Clear radio reception is ensured by the integrated DAB+ and FM tuner, while for media playback there is a CD/DVD drive as well as two USB ports. Naturally there is a Bluetooth wireless connection for smartphones. „Dealing with phone calls is then just as convenient as wireless audio streaming“, conclude the well-respected tech journalists.

SMART SAT NAV RETROFIT
What particularly impressed the testers is the how easy it is to upgrade the Z-E3150 to a sat nav system. Available in the basic version as a moniceiver, the infotainer can be easily expanded with the optional navigation software Z-EMAP50 on SDHC memory card: „The software offered is the well-known and proven iGo Primo with maps of 47 European countries, POI database, TMC and 3D rendering.“

But you can still use the Z-E3150 to navigate even without this additional software. „This is because the SmartLink function allows the screen content of smartphones to be mirrored on the ZENEC“, the tech journalists explain. „The apps, including navigation on the mobile phone, can then be controlled from the touchscreen of the ZENEC.“

SUMMARY
„The Z-E3150 performs brilliantly in the lab and in the field“, is the conclusion of the experienced testers. „The feature set is complete, the performance convincing, and the vehicle integration perfect. A great infotainment package for the AUDI A3 at a very attractive price!“

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work.

Sparkling Test Performance: ZENEC Infotainer Z-E2060 for VW T5

Thorough test conducted by German Car & Hifi magazine (01/2019): ZENEC’s new multimedia system for the VW T5 Multivan and California awarded the „Highlight“ accolade.

The triumphal march of the vehicle-specific ZENEC E>GO Series continues. Specially developed for the VW T5 Multivan and California, the new Infotainer Z-E2060 is another really successful model in the product range of the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC. The German Car & HiFi trade magazine has now thoroughly tested the „Bulli Specialist“ in issue 01/2019. „A great entertainment solution for the VW T5“, is the enthusiastic verdict of the trade journalists, awarding the Z-E20160 the „Highlight“ accolade.

PERFECT FIT FOR VW T5 MULTIVAN
As regards vehicle integration the Z-E2060 has already convinced the testers right down the line. ZENEC’s new infotainer integrates not only perfectly in the instrument panel of the latest Bulli, but with its comprehensive features and functionality is also perfectly tailored to the VW T5 – including all electrical connections. „The CAN interface enables communication with the onboard vehicle electronics“, say the journalists of the multimedia device: „functions like steering wheel remote control, parking radar, and climate control are supported by the Z-E2060“.

MULTIMEDIA FOR EXPERTS
With a CD/DVD drive, two USB connections, and the HDMI port the Z-E2060 is optimally equipped with all the multimedia functions, according to the tech journalists. In addition there is the DAB+ tuner for „crystal clear noise-free reception“ of digital radio, as well as many sound tools; for example, the 10-band equalizer and finely adjustable time alignment. „In the test lab the Z-E2060 does not put a foot wrong“, is the verdict of the critical journalists. „Picture quality and sound are also impressive.“

OPTIMAL OPERATION, OPTIMAL PRICING
The journalists agree that the „new“ ZENEC will excite drivers of the Bulli – and not just because of the „attractive“ price. Also the ease of use leaves nothing to be desired for the Car & HiFi testers. „Thanks to the clear menus, hard keys and rotary knobs you soon have the wide range of functions of the Z-E2060 under control. The large 6.5-inch (16.5 cm) capacitive touchscreen is brilliant and reacts promptly at the touch of a finger.“

TWOFOLD NAVIGATION SOLUTION
The Z-E2060 is able to not only use multimedia, but can also be used as a navigation system – SmartLink makes that possible: „This is because the SmartLink function allows the screen content of the smartphone to be mirrored on the ZENEC“, explain the testers. „The apps, including navigation on the mobile phone, can then be controlled from the touchscreen of the ZENEC.“ This is done by simply connecting the Android phone to one of the two USB ports.
But even without SmartLink the ZENEC Infotainer can be upgraded to a navigation device extremely easily. „If you would rather have offline navigation integrated, simply order the Z-EMAP50 software at the same time to turn the ZENEC from a moniceiver into a full-function navitainer“, is the enthusiastic opinion of the testers.

SUMMARY WITH FLYING COLORS
According to the verdict of the tech journalists the Z-E2060 has „mastered the test course with flying colors“. „With the Z-E2060 ZENEC offers the full range of media, communications and navigation features for the popular Bulli VW T5“, states the summary of the well-respected tech journalists. The Z-E2060 is, according to the testers, „a great entertainment solution for the VW T5“.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2018 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.

Both navigation packages contain digital maps for 47 European countries with 6.5 million Premium POIs. The map data can be updated for 3 years free of charge.
In the case of Z-EMAP56-MH important special functions for motorhomes are provided, such as preconfigured vehicle profiles, the input of vehicle parameters, and a comprehensive camping and motorhome stopover sites database. Of interest for use in motorhomes is the feature whereby up to three rear-view cameras can be connected to the Z-N956 – controlled directly via the CAM soft key. In addition, the Z-N956 can transmit audio signals to external Bluetooth speakers and headphones so that you can also enjoy your music outside your motorhome.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products.

Price tip: XZENT’s new 2-DIN infotainers X-422 and X-222

„Superb entertainment package at a sensational price“, is the verdict of the German Car & HiFi magazine (issue 05/2018) about XZENT’s multimedia systems, awarding it the ‚Price tip‘ accolade.

Price tip: XZENT X-422 and X-222

Launched in early summer, the two 2-DIN DAB+ infotainers X-422 and X-222 from multimedia specialist XZENT have now been thoroughly tested by the German Car & HiFi magazine in issue 05/2018. After an in-depth check out in a major test, both these systems were able to put up an all-round convincing performance. „Superb entertainment package at a sensational price“, is the verdict of the critical tech journalists on these new multimedia systems, awarding them the ‚Price tip‘ accolade to account for the outstanding price/performance.

WITH OR WITHOUT SAT NAV
With the X-422 and X-222 there are two moniceivers on the test bench that are identical as far as features and design are concerned. The only difference is: With its integrated GPS receiver the X-422 can easily be upgraded to become a fully-fledged naviceiver. For 99 euros you get the navigation package for cars with Europe-wide 3D navigation on a microSD card. And for just under 200 euros there is the motorhome variant, which allows vehicle parameters such as vehicle height and weight to be entered as well as providing an additional camping POI database. „Together with the optional navigation software the XZENT X-422 forms a completely equipped infotainment system at a very attractive price“ say the Car & Hifi testers.

SUPERB SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION
But even without the sat nav package comfortable navigation is still possible with either of these XZENT systems – with the aid of a compatible Android smartphone: „This is because the X-222 as well as the X-422 has Easy Connect“, the journalists explain. „With a suitable phone connected to one of the two USB ports at the rear you can mirror smartphone apps on the monitor of the car radio and control them via its touchscreen. This works just as well with the music player or Spotify as with Google Maps or other apps.“

SUPERB ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE
The journalists are also convinced by the versatile media section of the two XZENT infotainers. Beside an FM tuner to receive classic radio programs, the systems are equipped with a DAB+ tuner that scored with the testers for „comfortable station search, Service Following and MOT Slideshow“.
With two USB ports the moniceivers are well equipped for audio and video playback. Then there is the option for comfortable use of the mobile phone in the vehicle: „The devices also work together brilliantly with smartphones using a Bluetooth wireless connection to telephone and hear music.“ There is an HDMI interface for the connection of multimedia devices or mobile phones with an HDMI output.

COMFORTABLE OPERATION
Car & HiFi particularly praise the ease of use of both systems, that have a large capacitive 6.5″/16.5 cm touchscreen together with a practical rotary volume control and sensor buttons: „The menus are clearly laid out, the touchscreen reacts promptly, and as a result overall control is smooth and intuitive“, according to the well-respected tech journalists.
In conclusion, the testers attest to the versatile multimedia functions paired with ease of use and trouble-free in-vehicle integration of both systems, awarding them the ‚Price tip‘ accolade.

XZENT is a young brand that is focused exclusively on the „In-car Navigation and Multimedia“ sector. XZENT is the specialist for multimedia and navigation systems. As regards build quality and the range of features XZENT moni- and naviceivers are second to none and, with their sensational price/performance, are convincing right down the line.
XZENT products are now firmly established in the market – this is also demonstrated by the many awards and impressive test reports appearing in the trade press in recent years for XZENT devices.
XZENT products are distributed worldwide exclusively through the extensive ACR AG dealer network, Europe’s largest car media specialists. Among the ACR dealers you will also find a large range of accessories for XZENT systems: rear-view cameras, DAB+ and DVB-T tuners, and monitors as well as speakers and amplifiers.

Multimedia and More – the New XZENT Infotainer X-422

Intelligent retrofit: From XZENT there is now a versatile 2-DIN moniceiver that can be easily expanded into a sat nav system for cars or for motorhomes.

Multimedia and More - the New XZENT Infotainer X-422

XZENT X-422: multimedia and navigation

XZENT has become one of the most successful brands in the car multimedia and navigation sector. With the X-422 XZENT now has a new 2-DIN DAB+ infotainer in its product range that not only impresses with modern entertainment functions, uncomplicated vehicle integration, and easy operation. The new XZENT is also an intelligent solution for those who want a versatile sat nav. With one of two navigation packages available as an option, the X-422 (retail price 399 euros) can easily be expanded to a well equipped naviceiver for cars (with X-MAP22FEU, retail price 99 euros) or motorhomes (with X-MAP22FEU-MH, retail price 199 euros).

MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT
For multimedia playback the X-422 offers two USB ports supporting all the usual audio and video file formats. In addition, there is an HDMI interface for the connection of multimedia devices or smartphones with an HDMI output. The integrated DAB+ tuner with DAB Service Following, MOT Slideshow and DLS text ensures clear, stable digital radio reception. All functions can be comfortably controlled using the large capacitive 16.5 cm/6.5″ touchscreen with its four sensor buttons, and a practical volume control.

SMARTPHONE SPECIALIST
The X-422 offers several options for using smartphones in the car in comfort – not just for making calls using the hands-free system or streaming music via Bluetooth. One of the two USB ports can also be used for connecting an Android smartphone. Via the Easy Connect function, apps installed on the Android smartphone including navigation apps can be mirrored on the display of the X-422 and controlled directly from the touchscreen. The second USB port provides for the connection of iOS based mobile devices, and supports the Made for iPod/iPhone functionality.

ZENEC“s BMW Sat Nav Z-E3215 MkII Impresses the Press

„Modern infotainment for BMW 3 Series E90 – E93“, is the verdict of German Car & HiFi magazine (02/2017) on ZENEC’s new multimedia navigation system Z-E3215 MkII, awarding it a „Highlight“ accolade.

ZENEC"s BMW Sat Nav Z-E3215 MkII Impresses the Press

Highlight: Z-E3215 MkII sat nav for BMW 3

Even though no more BMW 3 Series E90 have been built for some years now, there are still many cars of this popular model running on European roads. However, the factory installed infotainment technology of about 12 years ago is now out-dated. With the Z-E3215 MkII, ZENEC has a multimedia navigation system in its product range that can easily be retrofitted in the BMW 3 Series to provide modern infotainment. The German Car & HiFi magazine tested the new BMW sat nav in issue 02/2017, and awarded it the „Highlight“ accolade.
Like its predecessor, the Z-E3212 MkII has also been designed to fit perfectly in the BMW 3 Series: „The ZENEC has exactly the same dimensions as the original BMW head unit. Also included in the kit is a front panel that goes round the air conditioning controls. The original look of the instrument panel is therefore kept, with the orange button illumination matching the BMW color“. But praise from Car & HiFi is not just for the appearance: „The Z-E3215 MkII also works perfectly with the vehicle electrical system.“ The Z-E3215 MkII thus supports the BMW steering wheel remote control, and displays the data of the optical parking assist in combination with the image of the rear-view camera. The acoustic PDC connection is made with the internal buzzer.
That the vehicle integration of the ZENEC BMW sat nav is an all round success for Car & HiFi is also shown by the automatic booting of the Z-E3215 MkII on a CAN wake-up signal. In BMW vehicles, 30 minutes after central locking the power supply to the radio is cut, all personal settings are lost in the case of conventional naviceivers. Not so with the Z-E3215 MkII: „The Z-E3215 saves the device user data internally on an EEPROM. So when the vehicle is unlocked, the ZENEC reboots and reloads all settings.“
ZENEC’s new BMW sat nav impressed the testers with its comprehensive multimedia features: „As is usual with ZENEC, the BMW model also offers a full set of entertainment, communications, and information features.“ Beside the DSP assisted FM tuner, the media hub offers the option of connecting three USB sources, including iPhone. In addition, according to the testers, there is a „hands-free system with all the familiar functions for comfortable telephony“, and the option of transmitting music via Bluetooth.
The navigation system of the Z-E3215 MkII also picked up points with maps for the whole of Europe, and more than 6 million Premium points of interest: The graphical representation of the route guidance is clear with three-dimensional rendering of buildings and terrain, real junction view, and tunnel mode. Route guidance is supported acoustically with text-to-speech, including the announcement of street names.
„With the Z-E3215 MkII, ZENEC offers owners of older 3 Series BMWs a wonderful opportunity to get the very latest infotainment into the dashboard“, is the conclusion reached by the tech journalists of Car & HiFi, rewarding ZENEC’s new sat nav with the „Highlight“ accolade.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like DVB-T/DAB+-tuners, rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2013/2014 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.
Few car media brands have ever started out as successfully as Zenec. Today, Zenec has established itself as undisputed market leader for multimedia navigation and spots – according to the Association for Consumer Research (Gfk) – in the German speaking territories a market share in excess of 35%.

Premium sat nav for the BMW 3 – ZENEC’s Z-E3215 MkII

Optimal in-vehicle integration, many multimedia and Bluetooth functions, and a top quality navigation system – market leader ZENEC unveils its new naviceiver for the BMW 3 Series.

Z-E3215 MkII sat nav for BMW 3

Premium navitainment for the premium marque from Munich – with the Z-E3215 MkII the Swiss firm ZENEC is launching a new touchscreen naviceiver for the BMW 3 Series. The Z-E3215 MkII, a facelift of the successful Z-E3215 awarded the „Best Product“ accolade by Car & Hifi magazine (03/2013), comes with new navigation software that provides very precise route guidance.
Like its predecessor, the Z-E3215 MkII allows optimal visual and technical integration in the BMW 3 Series and E9X vehicle models – interfacing with the steering wheel remote control, the BMW power system, and the Optical Parking System. The interface is of central importance for this E>GO model. But functions like the automatic CAN signal induced boot process, the Z-E3215 MkII is at least a nose long ahead of all the others. In addition, the Z-E3215 MkII stores the user settings internally, reloading them when the vehicle gets unlocked. Your Z-E3215 MkII naviceiver is therefore ready for use before you have even buckled yourself up.
The Z-E3215 MkII is an innovative media station, ideally equipped for playing digital media and A/V formats like MP3, WMA, Xvid and AVI. Zenec“s BMW navigation system has a USB hub for connecting three USB 2.0 sticks. An iPod/iPhone interface can be connected as well, obtainable separately.
Maximum comfort in handling phone calls is offered by the integrated Bluetooth unit from market leader Parrot. Via the user-independent voice recognition, it is easy to control call functions and access phonebook contacts directly by voice command; music streams can easily be played from the mobile phone via A2DP.
An innovative FM tuner with DSP ensures optimal radio reception, as well as a clear sound even under poor reception conditions and weak broadcasting stations, thanks to adaptive noise reduction.
The high resolution 6.2″/15.7 cm TFT LCD touchscreen display allows comfortable control of all functions. Large icons, logically structured user navigation, and the new clear menu design ensure that the BMW E>GO can be controlled intuitively and safely while driving.
In the Z-E3215 MkII infotainment features are combined with a modern navigation system. The EU map package with 47 countries navigates using the new ZENEC NextGen navigation engine, and contains over 6 million Premium points of interest. The device is supplied with one year map update subscription.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products.
