ZENEC Z-E2060: Top Entertainer with Sat Nav Option for VW T5

ZENEC Z-E2060 for VW T5

Convenient and affordable retrofitting of multimedia and navigation functions for VW T5 Multivan and T5 California vehicles – with the Z-E2060 of the E>GO model range. Brought out by the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC, the Z-E2060 is a versatile infotainer that integrates perfectly into T5 based VW vehicles. High end sound, enthralling pictures and films, optimal DAB+ radio reception, and clever smartphone integration – ZENEC’s new E>GO makes every trip in the popular VW Bully successor even more entertaining. Also for those looking for a comfortable sat nav, the Z-2060 is the intelligent solution: With the Z-EMAP50 sat nav package available as an optional package, the infotainer can be extended to become a well equipped naviceiver.

PERFECT UPGRADE FOR THE VW T5
ZENEC’s new naviceiver stands for premium quality and premium components, designed for perfect system integration into the VW T5. Appearance, fit, electrical connections – the Z-E2060 has been developed uncompromisingly for the following T5 transporters (build years from 2010 to 2015): the VW T5 Multivan Comfortline, PanAmericana, Highline, Edition25, BlueMotion, Match, Special, Business and Caravelle as well as the VW T5 California, Comfortline and Europe.
The Z-E2060 is optimally integrated into the VW electrical system, being connected via the CAN bus to the steering wheel remote control, multifunction display (MFA+, MFA), Climatronic status display and the the optical parking system (OPS). These comfort functions can therefore be readily used as normal.

QUICK RESPONSE TOUCHSCREEN
From the capacitive 16.5 cm / 6.5″ display it is possible to control the new T5 E>GO precisely and completely intuitively. The touchscreen responds to to just a light touch.
The display is impressive not just because it is easy to use: the images presented on the display screen also convince with color brilliance, high brightness level and large contrast range.

VERSATILE ENTERTAINMENT
All your favorite radio stations in clear digital quality. The Z-E2060 has an integrated DAB+ twin tuner. Its full feature set – MOT Slideshow, DLS text, Service Following and dynamic station list – ensures excellent reception and ease of use.
With the versatile entertainment functions of the Z-E2060 you get a totally new music and video experience. Beside a CD/DVD drive the T5 specialist offers two USB ports for connecting USB media, iPod or iPhone.
A powerful 4 x 45 watt amplifier, the 10-band graphic equalizer and the DSP based 5-channel time alignment make for the best possible sound, and allows for comprehensive sound tuning. Whether driving away on vacation or to work – boredom on board will at any rate not arise!

OPTIMAL SMARTPHONE PARTNER
The Z-E2060 can use smartphones in the T5 in many ways, not only for telephoning with the hands-free system or music streaming via Bluetooth. Direct USB connections to the Z-E2060 are also available for Android smartphones – the apps are all mirrored on the display of the E>GO using the SmartLink function. The apps can then be controlled directly from the touchscreen of the Z-E2060, allowing the functions of the mobile phones to be fully exploited in the vehicle – including the comfortable use of navigation apps.

UPGRADABLE: FROM INFOTAINER TO NAVICEIVER
If using smartphone sat nav apps for occasional navigation is not enough, you can upgrade the Z-E2060 to a full-function naviceiver by purchasing the optional Z-EMAP50 navigation package. This includes the latest ZENEC NextGen navigation software on 16 GB microSD card, containing 3D maps of 47 EU countries, more than 6.5 million points of interest, Lane Assist function and TMC – together with free map updates for one year.
In combination with the sat nav software package the Z-E2060 is turned into a perfect navigation system, offering many advantages in everyday use.

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.

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

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.

The enclosure is made of MDF and covered with robust felt. To minimize air turbulence the port is flow optimized. The terminal offers various connection options to allow a free choice of amplifier. With the connector the plug and play bass box is quickly connected to the amplifier, and can be removed from the trunk just as fast if required.
The awesome output of 200 watts RMS, outstanding build quality, and the attractive price of 149 Euro make the smart ATB120 a convincing total package for the straightforward implementation of an in-car bass system.

Top Entertainer for the Car: XZENT Multimedia System X-222

All entertainment options in a single device: with the X-222, XZENT has brought out a versatile 2-DIN DAB+ moniceiver for easy retrofitting at a reasonable price.

Top Entertainer for the Car: XZENT Multimedia System X-222

XZENT X-222: 2-DIN multimedia system

Originally a hot tip, the XZENT moni- and naviceivers are now among the top sellers Europe-wide, and are awarded accolades by the trade press for their outstanding price/performance. With the X-222 (retail price 299 euros) XZENT has now brought out a new 2-DIN multimedia system. True to the slogan „high quality at an amazingly reasonable price“, the X-222 impresses with its great visual design, modern entertainment, uncomplicated in-car integration, and easy operation.

COMFORTABLE AND VERSATILE
That the X-222 is a really comfortable device to use, is revealed by the clear layout of the front, combining a large 16.5 cm/6.5″ touchscreen with four sensor buttons, and a practical volume control knob. The capacitive display reacts to just a light touch – a fingertip is enough. The strong brightness of the high resolution display, its crystal clear transparency, brilliant colors, and large contrast range ensure good readability even in difficult light conditions – a perfect platform for media content playback.

MULTIMEDIA SPECIALIST
Beside the receiver for the analog FM radio, the X-222 has a DAB+ tuner for digital radio enjoyment. Equipped with DAB Service Following, DLS text, and the display of slideshows, the outstanding reception and great ease of use of this tuner make it convincing. For multimedia playback the X-222 offers two USB ports supporting all the usual audio and video file formats, including FLAC and WAV. In addition, there is a microSD card reader and an HDMI interface for the connection of multimedia devices or smartphones with an HDMI output.

SMARTPHONES – OPTIMAL USE
With the powerful Bluetooth unit of the X-222 you can not only phone safely while on the move but also stream music in comfort. And it gets even better. Android smartphones can be connected to one of the USB ports. The Easy Connect function mirrors the smartphone apps, including sat nav apps, on the display of the X-222 so that they can then be comfortably controlled via touchscreen.
The second USB port provides for the connection of iOS based mobile devices, and supports the Made for iPod/iPhone functionality.

SMART DETAILS
The X-222 has two RCA inputs for connecting two cameras (front/rear or rear/rear). A practical feature here is the CAM button at the front that enables a direct manual control access to the camera system. This enables you to quickly switch to the camera image when driving ahead. For optimal in-car integration the illumination of the four sensor buttons of the X-222 can be adjusted to match the color of the cockpit instrument illumination for the particular vehicle.

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 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 2017 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%.

Compact and good value – the new AXTON subwoofer ATB216

The new AXTON bass boxr ATB216 has been awarded the the „Price Tip“ accolade from Car & Hifi magazine (issue 1/2018).

Compact and good value - the new AXTON subwoofer ATB216

AXTON’s bandpass subwoofer ATB216

It’s hard to find a car driver who wants to drive through the district with a huge subwoofer box clogging up the complete trunk. A lot of bass fans therefore avoid that with a mini subwoofer – only to find quite often that they are then disappointed by the poor performance. With the new AXTON ATB216 bandpass box, Car & Hifi magazine (issue 1/2018) has now tested a compact subwoofer that they found convincing regarding bass performance and dimensions. Awarded the „Price Tip“ accolade, the ATB216 is the best subwoofer that one can buy for 149 euros.

Car audio specialist AXTON has long been well-known for cleverly constructed subwoofer boxes true to the motto „minimum size, maximum power“. In this respect the new ATB216 is no exception: according to the Car & Hifi testers, it demonstrates „how to get really good bass out of a small volume.“

Only 25.5 cm high and deep, the ATB216 integrates with a sloping rear wall without any trouble, hardly taking up any space in the trunk. The trade journalists praise not only the „robust and compact“ construction of the bandpass housing, but also the intelligent design with two „well made, potent“ 16 cm woofers. „With two 16ers you can really let it rip, especially when they are so solidly built like the AXTON drivers“, is the judgment of the testers. A fat, 25-mm thick magnet ring provides the power, and the generous winding height of the voice-coil wire enables an impressive 6 mm linear stroke in each direction.“

The bass box was also thoroughly convincing in the test lab: „It’s nice to see the good sensitivity of 88 dB, which is very satisfying even with small power amps. (…) One can therefore say that the the ATB216 has achieved a very successful balance.“
In the sound check the new AXTON bandpass profiles as a subwoofer that „does everything right“ is the expert opinion: „It plays cleanly and gives bass drums their full punch“, was the decision of the Car & Hifi testers on the performance of the ATB216. „The sound is full and powerful. Its sound level capability, however, is among the best, which is surprising considering the size. The unit delivers a really fat pressure that shakes the mirrors.“

That the ATB216 passed the test with flying colors not only reinforces the major „Price Tip“ accolade, but also underlines the final judgment of the trade journalists: „One can only describe the ATB216 as a big hit. It makes itself inconspicuous in the trunk, while delivering full bass pressure. The whole thing at just 150 euros is also really good value.“

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 DAB+-tuners, rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.

The bandpass box ATB216 is designed for music lovers who do not want to compromise on luggage space or bass power on the road. Of minimal size 25 x 54 x 30 cm, the ATB216 keeps playing where other subwoofer dwarfs run out of steam, producing enormous bass waves with the greatest of ease, setting an impressive stage for every electro beat, every guitar riff, and every bass drum.
AXTON’s bandpass is a completely new design whereby the size of the enclosure, practical suitability, and fitting have been perfectly matched. In the stable and rigid enclosure there are two powerful 16-cm woofers at work that pack a punch: equipped with very stiff, air dried paper cones with rubber surround and large 1.5″ / 38 mm voice coils on aluminum formers, the drivers ensure powerful bass with fast response. The high linear Xmax value of +/- 6.3 mm also speaks for itself…
The enclosure is made of strong MDF and covered with robust felt. The port is flow optimized to minimize air turbulence. The rear of the enclosure is beveled so that it takes up as little space as possible when positioned on the backrest of the rear seat. Via the spring loaded binding post terminal, also on the rear side, the plug and play bass box is quickly connected to the amplifier, and can be removed from the trunk just as fast if required.
The awesome output of 250 watts and 92 dB/1 W/1 m, outstanding build quality, and the attractive price make the smart ATB216 a convincing total package for the straightforward implementation of an in-car bass system.

The brand AXTON has been popular with car enthusiasts for almost 30 years. AXTON’s products are regularly recognized in trade magazines for their high price performance ratio. The range includes amplifiers and various loudspeakers for car retrofitting: component and coaxial systems, bass boxes, and also compact under seat woofers.

Unsere Vision…

Ohne unserer anfänglichen Vision untreu werden zu wollen, möchten wir uns anlässlich des 20. Jubiläums des „Fiat 850 Spider Bertone h-c-Team“, neu ausrichten.

Unsere anfängliche Vision im Jahre 1997 war es, eine gemeinsame Unternehmung anzustreben, ohne von einem starren Reglement oder ähnlichem „ausgebremst“ zu werden.

Unser Motto ist und bleibt „Klasse statt Masse“.

Was ist Neu?
Anlässlich des Jubiläums erweitern wir unseren Horizont. Unter unserem neuen Logo und Credo können nun ALLE Gleichgesinnten Autoliebhaber bei unseren unterschiedlichen Veranstaltungen teilhaben.

Warum wir?
-einzigartige Strecken durch die Traumwelt
der Dolomiten und Südtirols
-Erlebnisse unterschliedlicher Art (Kunst, Museen, Kulinarik uvm)
-einzigartige Programme pro Jahr
-Sternfahrten-Genussfahrten
-Urlaub anders Erleben, Urlaub auf 4 Rädern
