New Motorhome Sat Nav: ZENEC Z-E3756 for the Fiat Ducato

Z-E3756: motorhome sat nav for Fiat Ducato

With the Z-E3756 the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC presents a new motorhome naviceiver for the Fiat Ducato, Citroen Jumper and Peugeot Boxer. The Z-E3756 is a clever all-in-one solution that provides a wide variety of entertainment, organizes all telephone calls, and makes easy work of calculating even the most complex routes.
The Z-E3756 blends in perfectly with the original look of the vehicles, and can be comfortably controlled from the 7″/17.8 cm capacitive touchscreen with glass surface.

INFOTAINMENT ON THE MOVE
The Z-E3756 puts innovative multimedia and advanced navigation in the Fiat Ducato. The integrated DAB+ dual tuner with dynamic station list and DABDAB / DABFM Service Following enables clear and stable digital radio reception. A CD/DVD drive and two USB ports handle the playback of the latest audio and video formats The comprehensive Bluetooth unit enables safe hands-free calling and comfortable music streaming.
The Z-E3756 is Google Android Auto certified. Owners of an Android smartphone thus have access to compatible apps and online services which they can intuitively control from the screen of the ZENEC device or the Google voice assistant.

PERFECT FOR MOTORHOMES
With many detailed solutions the Z-E3756 is perfectly tailored to motorhome driving practice. For example, it enables the connection and control of three camera systems, that can be controlled via the CAM button on the front of the device or the touchscreen. For better estimation of distances guidelines can be displayed.
The Z-E3756 has an integrated streaming module for transmitting music to external Bluetooth speakers – so that music can also be enjoyed outside the vehicle. Audio functions are then controlled via an app from the Android smartphone.

THE IDEAL CAMPER NAVICEIVER
The special motorhome navigation software of the Z-E3756 is optimally tailored to the needs of motorhome drivers. With detailed maps of 47 countries (Western and Eastern Europe, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus), its integrated camping POI database with approx. 20,000 camping and motorhome stopover sites plus a further 6.5 million Premium POIs, ZENEC’s motorhome sat nav guides you reliably to your destination. The map data can be updated for 3 years free of charge.
To make navigation easier you can choose between different vehicle profiles. By setting the exact vehicle data such as height, width, length, and weight, routes can be precisely calculated and, for example, streets avoided that are prohibited to vehicles or have low headroom.
The Z-E3756 not only has a TMC receiver, but also a DAB TPEG function to display traffic events and traffic flow in near real time.

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.

SmartTOP additional convertible top control for Ford Mustang Convertible

Las Vegas, Nevada – May 9, 2018

The company Mods4cars is now offering its retrofit SmartTOP convertible top control for the 6th generation Ford Mustang Cabriolet. „We are pleased to now also offer a smart convertible top solution for the Ford Mustang Convertible,“ said PR spokesman Sven Tornow. SmartTOP modules are additionally installed into the vehicle to make the usability of the convertible top more comfortable.

After installation, the Mustang driver is able to open and close their convertible top while driving at a speed of up to 50 km/h with One-Touch. All you need to do is tap the interior button. The top movement is then carried out automatically. „This way the driver has both hands on the steering wheel faster,“ explains Sven Tornow.

In addition to this main function, the SmartTOP also has other clever features: You can configure it so that the top opens automatically after unlocking, without having to press additional buttons. Furthermore, it is possible, when starting the vehicle, for Sport Mode to automatically activate. Also starting and stopping the engine does not interrupt the current top movement.

All functions can be programmed according to personal wishes. Among other things, you can gradually select the speed at which the top movement can be carried out while driving. Thanks to an USB port attached to the module, configuration can easily be done via a PC/Mac. In addition, the USB port allows software updates and feature enhancements to be uploaded, which Mods4cars provides, free of charge.

For easy installation, the SmartTOP module comes with a plug-and-play adapter set. The specially developed adapter set has connectors in OEM quality and ensures a simple connection between vehicle electronics and SmartTOP module. No cables need to be cut through, therefore, a residue-free removal is possible at any time.

Since 2001, the company Mods4cars has been producing its SmartTOP additional top controls. From Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen to Volvo. All popular convertible and roadster models are supported.

The SmartTOP comfort control for the Ford Mustang Convertible is available for 249.00 euro + tax.

About Mods4cars:

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 from the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung der Firma Mods4cars für Mercedes-Benz im neuen Gehäuse

Die RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung für Mercedes-Benz hat ein neues Gehäuse erhalten. Das nachrüstbare Modul aus dem Hause Mods4cars sorgt mit smarten Funktionen für einen höheren Bedienkomfort.

RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung der Firma Mods4cars für Mercedes-Benz im neuen Gehäuse

RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung für Mercedes-Benz

Las Vegas, Nevada – 3. Mai 2018

Die Firma Mods4cars hat das Design ihrer RemoteKEY Komfortmodule überarbeitet. Ab sofort wird das RemoteKEY für Mercedes-Benz im neuen Gehäuse versandt. Es handelt sich um eine nachrüstbare Steuerung, welche mehr Komfort und zahlreiche Zusatzfunktionen liefert.

So macht die RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung unter anderem das Öffnen und Schließen der Fenster über die bestehende Original-Fernbedienung möglich. Außerdem kann das Schiebedach über den Fahrzeugschlüssel geöffnet und geschlossen werden. Die Chirp-Funktion lässt auf Wunsch beim Betätigen der Zentralverriegelung ein kurzes Hupsignal ertönen. Dank des RemoteKEY Moduls ver- bzw. entriegelt die Zentralverriegelung während bzw. nach der Fahrt. Per Fernbedienung können die Scheinwerfer aktiviert werden, um das Fahrzeug aufzufinden.

Zudem enthält die RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung eine TV-Freischaltung. Sie ermöglicht die Aktivierung der TV- und DVD-Wiedergabe während der Fahrt. So kann der Beifahrer die Unterhaltungstechnik bedienen und auf längeren Reisen DVDs abspielen. Da das Modul im Fahrzeug verbaut wird, bleiben die Funktionen auch nach Inspektionsarbeiten durch eine Werkstatt erhalten. Die Aktivierung und Deaktivierung der TV-Freischaltung erfolgt über eine Tastenkombination am Lenkrad.

Die Komfortsteuerung kann bedarfsweise komplett deaktiviert werden. Alle Funktionen können nach den persönlichen Wünschen programmiert werden. Dazu dient der am RemoteKEY angebrachte USB-Anschluss. Dieser macht es möglich, die Steuerung am PC zu konfigurieren und Softwareaktualisierungen, die Mods4cars kostenfrei zur Verfügung stellt, einzuspielen.

Seit 2002 entwickelt die Firma Mods4cars nachrüstbare Komfort- und Cabriosteuerungen für alle gängigen Fahrzeugmarken. „Der Grundgedanke unserer Produkte ist es, die Bedienung einzelner Abläufe beim Fahrzeug einfacher und komfortabler zu gestalten.“ erklärt PR-Sprecher Sven Tornow. „Mit dem neuen Gehäuse haben wir nun auch die Installation unserer Module vereinfacht.“ so Sven Tornow weiter. Zwei am Modul angebrachte LEDs geben Hilfestellung bei der Installation. Dank der schmaleren Form lässt sich das RemoteKEY leichter im Fahrzeug verbauen.

Nachrüstbare Verdeck- und Komfortmodule aus dem Hause Mods4cars sind für folgende Fahrzeugmarken verfügbar: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen und Volvo.

Die RemoteKEY Komfortsteuerung ist für 249,00 Euro erhältlich und für die folgenden Modelle verfügbar: C-Klasse (203), E-Klasse (211), S-Klasse (220), ML-Klasse (W164), GL-Klasse (X164) und R-Klasse (W251/V251).

Die Firma Mods4cars wurde im Jahre 2002 aus der Idee heraus geboren, den an sich fast perfekten Porsche Boxster um ein viel gefragtes Detail, die komfortable One-Touch-Verdeckbedienung, zu erweitern. Das resultierende Produkt erlaubt überdies auch die Bedienung während der langsamen Fahrt und ist in Sekundenschnelle installiert, ohne das Fahrzeug dauerhaft zu verändern: Die erste SmartTOP Verdecksteuerung war geboren.

Der Erfolg der ersten Produkte in Deutschland und Europa führte schließlich Ende 2004 dazu, den Firmensitz in die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu verlegen, um von dort den Amerikanischen Kontinent und andere englischsprachige Länder wie England, Australien und Südafrika zu bedienen. Inzwischen ist ein internationales Unternehmen mit Firmensitz in Las Vegas (USA) und Generalvertretung in Berlin (Deutschland) entstanden, das täglich die über den Globus verteilten Vertriebs- und Installationspartner mit innovativen und auf dem Markt einzigartigen Produkten beliefert.

Durch die seit 2002 begonnene Spezialisierung auf die exklusive Entwicklung von Verdeck- und Komfortsteuerungen kann die Firma Mods4cars eine einmalige Kompetenz und Produktqualität gewährleisten. Das oberste Ziel ist es, jedes Produkt in Bezug auf Stabilität, Funktion und intuitive Bedienbarkeit hin zu optimieren. Bei der Entwicklung und Qualitätskontrolle der Steuerungen werden keine Kosten und Mühen gescheut um diesem Ziel und den hohen Erwartungen der Kunden gerecht zu werden.

Der außergewöhnliche Erfolg der Mods4cars Produkte basiert nicht zuletzt auf der intensiven Zusammenarbeit mit den Kunden, die für jedes neue Produkt schon während der Entwicklungsphase beginnt.

ZENEC’s Z-E2050 Infotainer for VW passes tough test

The new infotainment benchmark for Golf V/VI and its relatives ZENEC’s multimedia navigation system for VW, Seat and Skoda is awarded the „Highlight“ accolade from Car&Hifi magazine (03/2018).

ZENEC

ZENEC Z-E2050 for vehicles from VW

In 2008 the Swiss car media specialist ZENEC launched the first vehicle-specific permanently installed navigation system in the E>GO range. Now in 2018 the E>GO is already in the fifth generation. The flagship of the new models, the Z-E2050 infotainer for Golf V and VI platforms, has been put through a tough test by the well-known Car & Hifi trade magazine in issue 03/2018. And with resounding success: „With the ZENEC Z-E2050 you get a brand-name device with first-class features and brilliant performance that is really easy to use at an amazingly good price“, is the verdict of the testers about the Z-E2050, awarding it the ‚Highlight‘ accolade.

SPECIALISED FOR VW, SEAT AND SKODA
In the detailed test report Car & Hifi has particular praise for the perfect in-vehicle integration for which the ZENEC E>GO range is well known: „In terms of fit and electrical interfaces, including CAN bus adapters, the Z-E2050 is perfectly tailored to the Golf V/VI, and many other vehicles from the VW Group based on this platform.“
The latest ZENEC also integrates „perfectly with the VW on-board vehicle electronics“, according to the journalists. Depending on the original equipment of the vehicle, functions like steering wheel remote control, climate control, OPS parking radar, rear-view camera, and MFA+ are supported.

ATTRACTIVE FEATURES, ATTRACTIVE PRICE
ZENEC’s new brand-name device is a hit with the testers with its „extremely attractive price“ of 559 euros: „This puts the Z-E2050 almost at the price level of cheap Chinese imports, and that with a full guarantee and access to a well-known European distributor if servicing is needed“.
According to Car & Hifi ZENEC „really goes to town“ with the feature set – starting with the extraordinarily large 8-inch (20.3 cm) capacitive touchscreen. „In operation the display screen is brilliant and reacts promptly at the touch of a finger. Operation of all functions is smooth and trouble-free.“
Equipped with CD/DVD drive, microSD slot, two USB connections, and HDMI port, the Z-E2050 has all the multimedia tools on-board. Added to that is a receiver for DAB+ digital radio that the experienced testers certify as having „crystal clear noise-free reception“. The integrated Bluetooth unit also impresses these critical journalists: „Hands-free calling and music streaming function really well, offering every comfort.“

SMART RETROFIT NAVIGATION SYSTEM
What particularly impressed the testers is the how really easy it is to upgrade the Z-E2050 to a sat nav system. Available in the basic version as a moniceiver for 559 euros, the infotainer can be easily expanded with the Europe-wide navigation software Z-EMAP50 (139 euros): „Just insert the SD card, and the ZENEC becomes an integrated navigation system at what is nevertheless still a very attractive total price of 700 euros.“
Yet even without the navigation package you can use the ZENEC as a turn-by-turn sign post. „This is possible thanks to the SmartLink function“ say the trade journalists, „that allows any app, including navigation, of a connected Android phone to be used on the ZENEC display.“ This is done by simply connecting the Android phone to one of the two USB ports so that the apps can be controlled directly from the ZENEC.

SUMMARY
„The ZENEC Z-E2050 performed very well in our laboratory and field tests. And in the test lab too the ZENEC does not put a foot wrong“ is the final verdict of the testers regarding the performance of the new ZENEC device. „A big hit indeed!“ is how Car & Hifi summarizes it. „The Z-E2050 is the new infotainment benchmark for Golf V/VI and its relatives.“

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%.

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.

EXPANDABLE TO A NAVICEIVER
If navigating via an app is not enough you can easily upgrade the X-422 to a fully-fledged naviceiver. For this XZENT provides two different navigation software packages on microSD card: the X-MAP22FEU for normal cars, and the X-MAP22FEU-MH for motorhomes. Both packages offer maps with coverage of 47 European countries, more than 6.5 million POI, realistic 3D rendering and Auto-Zoom, a lane assistant displaying freeway traffic signs, as well as free map updates for one year.
The motorhome variant additionally has a camping POI package with 20,000 EU entries. To make navigation easier you can choose between different vehicle profiles. By setting the exact vehicle data such as height, width, length, and weight, routes can be precisely calculated, and unsuitable streets avoided.

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.

Mit dem X-422 hat XZENT jetzt einen neuen 2-DIN DAB+ Infotainer im Programm, der nicht nur mit modernen Entertainmentfunktionen, unkomplizierter Fahrzeugintegration und einfacher Bedienbarkeit überzeugt. Auch für diejenigen, die ein vielseitiges Navi wollen, ist der neue XZENT eine intelligente Lösung: Mit einem der beiden optional erhältlichen Navipakete lässt sich der X-422 (VK-Preis 399.- Euro) einfach zum bestens ausgestatteten Naviceiver für PKWs (mit X-MAP22FEU, VK-Preis 99.- Euro) oder für Reisemobile (mit X-MAP22FEU-MH, VK-Preis 199.- Euro) erweitern.

MOBILE UNTERHALTUNG
Zur Multimediawiedergabe bietet der X-422 gleich zwei USB-Ports, die alle üblichen Audio- und Videoformate unterstützen. Dazu kommt eine HDMI-Schnittstelle zum Anschluss von Multimediageräten oder Handys mit HDMI-Ausgang.
Der integrierte DAB+ Tuner mit DAB-DAB Service Following, MOT Slideshow und DLS-Text sorgt für einen klaren, stabilen Digitalradioempfang.
Alle Funktionen lassen sich bequem über den großen kapazitiven 16,5 cm/6,5″ Touchscreen mit seinen vier Sensortasten und den praktischen Lautstärkedrehregler bedienen.

SMARTPHONE-SPEZIALIST
Der X-422 bietet vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Smartphones im Auto komfortabel zu nutzen – nicht nur zum Telefonieren über die Freisprecheinrichtung oder Musik streamen via Bluetooth.
Einer der beiden USB-Ports kann man auch zum Anschluss von Android Smartphones nutzten. Über die Easy Connect Funktion lassen sich dann alle Handy Apps, inklusive der Navi-Apps, auf das Display des X-422 spiegeln und dort direkt via Touchscreen steuern.
Der zweite USB-Port übernimmt den Anschluss von iOS basierten Mobilgeräten und unterstützt die Made for iPod/iPhone Funktionalität.

ZUM NAVICEIVER ERWEITERBAR
Wem das Navigieren per App nicht reicht, der kann den X-422 einfach zum vollwertigen Naviceiver aufrüsten. Von XZENT gibt es dazu zwei verschiedene microSD-Karten mit unterschiedlichen Navipaketen: X-MAP22FEU für PKWs und X-MAP22FEU-MH, speziell für Reisemobile.
Beide Pakete bieten Karten von 47 europäischen Ländern, mehr als 6,5 Millionen P.O.I., realistische 3-D Darstellungen und Auto-Zooms, einen Fahrspurassistenten mit Anzeige von Autobahn-Verkehrsschildern sowie kostenfreie Kartenupdates für ein Jahr.
Die Reisemobil-Variante verfügt zusätzlich über ein Camping P.O.I. Paket mit 20.000 EU Sonderzielen. Um das Navigieren zu erleichtern, kann man zwischen verschiedenen Fahrzeugprofilen auswählen. Die Einstellung der genauen Fahrzeugdaten wie Höhe, Breite, Länge, Gewicht ermöglicht es, die Routen exakt zu berechnen und ungeeignete Straßen zu vermeiden.

Navigation und Multimedia im Fahrzeug, dafür steht die Marke Zenec, im deutschsprachigen Raum der Marktführer für In Car Multimedia. Von Festeinbaunavigationen und Multimediasystemen bis zu ergänzendem Zubehör wie Rückfahrkameras, Monitoren oder DVB-T Tunern – die Zenec Produktpalette bietet überzeugende Komplettlösungen für jedes Auto.

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%.
