Steering wheel remote control integration
Multifunction Display (MFD+)
Parking sensors
The E>GO Z-E2015 is connected via the vehiclespecific CAN bus interface to the factory installed
steering wheel remote control. The multimedia
functions and telephony functionality of the steering wheel remote control are supported.
E>GO is a perfect fit: The Z-E2015 also supports
the Multifunction Display (MFD+), that is connected to the CAN bus. Displayed are turn key arrows,
as well as radio station and track infos from all
audio sources.
Perfect integration into each target vehicle – data
present in the CAN net for factory installed parking radar sensors is read, processed and displayed via the ZENEC OPS (Optical Parking System) on the touchscreen of the E>GO.
ZENEC E>GO Z-E2015 – Perfect Integration Into Your VW
In 2008, ZENEC brought the first E>GO onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehiclespecific naviceiver. Today, ZENEC is the market leader in the German
speaking area for in-car multimedia navigation devices. And with the new
product range there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.
E>GO – clever design, perfect system solution
The E>GO concept, honored with two innovation prizes, is a system solu­
tion without equal for realizing in-car multimedia and navigation in an
in­geniously simple way: E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically
– in the respective target vehicle. Of particular importance is the perfect
integration into the existing vehicle electronics. And this is not just the
interface with the steering wheel remote control.
Straightforward installation, an immense range of functions and an ingeniously simple concept of operation – that makes E>GO so exceptional and
so successful. With the knowledge of the peculiarities and specific pitfalls
of the individual vehicles in the background, the next E>GO generation
now lines up. Perfectly matched to the respective target vehicles, they
come with a high-resolution digital touch panel, many innovative features
and, key for ZENEC, a simplified ease of use.
E>GO Z-E2015 – custom-fit to your VW
The Z-E2015 is a smart specialist, specifically developed for your VW.
The specific construction, the white/red button illumination and the
custom­ized styling of the front panel make ZENEC’s top naviceiver blend
in perfectly with various VW, SEAT, and SKODA models.
The Z-E2015 is also effortlessly integrated into the existing auto­mo­tive
electronics. The E>GO is linked to the steering wheel remote control, the
Multifunction Display (MFD+), the Optical Park System (OPS), and the
Climatronic control status via the vehicle-specific CAN bus interface.
E>GO Z-E2015 – navigation, entertainment, communication
Enjoy the sophisticated ZENEC multimedia features with CD, DVD, USB
or iPod/iPhone.
The integrated hands-free system, which communicates perfectly with
your smart phone, allows you to make telephone calls in comfort at any
time. The speaker independent voice recognition function (“voice command”) allows to control call control functions even easier and “dial“
phone book contacts directly using voice commands.
For the best possible radio reception the Z-E2015 has a phase diversity
FM dual tuner on board.
For the navigation part, the Z-E2015 is perfectly equipped. Detailed
maps of all European countries, realistic display of 3D terrains and 3D
landmarks, more than 6.5 million Premium POIs, TMC, integrated trip
computer, Auto Zoom, Lane Assistant and Smart Mode – thanks to the
latest customized Primo 2.0 nav-software the Z-E2015 impresses with its
diversity of functions and with accurate route guidance.
A/C control status info integration
Up-to-date navigation
Phase Diversity FM Dual Tuner
The status data of the Climatronic, if installed in
the respective vehicle and present in the CAN net,
are displayed as a pop-up info on your E>GO’s
touchscreen display during adjustment of any
A/C related function.
The full EU navigation package on 8 GB SD card
deploys a customized 2.0 Primo navigation engine
and contains 6.5 million Premium POI as well as
other useful add-ons. The 8 GB SD card provides
more than ample space for map updates and other
content extensions via toolbox and Naviextras.
The dual tuner of the E>GO is working with an FM
phase diversity circuit that processes the signals
of the two antennas built into the vehicle. A DSP
algorithm generates the desired noise and distortion free FM signal. You always enjoy optimum
radio reception, even under difficult conditions.

navigation splitscreen mode on the TFT LCD
screen for various audio sources, including the
Bluetooth hands-free source mode.

of incoming calls and/or audio features without
leaving the navigation mode. In other playback
modes there is also a navigation infobar to keep
you updated when to take the next turn or exit.

Connection Options: Limitless Connectivity
Due to the USB ports and the various A/V in- and outputs, there is almost nothing that cannot be connected to the Z-E2015. The ZENEC program has a wide palette
of multimedia-based additional components that are optimally suited to the E>GO naviceiver. All equipment – external monitors, DVB-T and DAB+ reiceivers or rear
view cameras – can be connected directly to the naviceiver and operated via touchscreen.
Wireless communication via Bluetooth
ZENEC‘s naviceiver enables comprehensive connectivity and the conve­
nience of operating a Bluetooth-capable mobile phone. The E>GO is

With ZENEC you can make phone calls in excellent quality – either using
the integrated microphone or the external microphone supplied with your
E>GO. Thanks to the innovative audio DSP, unwanted ambient sounds
can be filtered out more efficiently and voices understood more easily.
Parrot makes for very simple operation when driving. The caller‘s number, phone book entries and other information are clearly shown on the
naviceiver‘s display. The address book of the naviceiver is automatically
synchronized with the mobile phone as well.
The speaker independent voice recognition function (“voice command”)
allows to control call control functions even easier and “dial“ phone book
contacts* directly using voice commands.
*The paired mobile phone must support phone book access. You can easily search for phone book entries – simply tap in the initial
letters of the contact you want to dial. This search function is really an
enormous benefit for professional use. Even special characters are no
problem thanks to the multilingual keypad.
The firmware of the Bluetooth component can be conveniently updated
using a USB stick, for example if you would like to use a brand new mobile
phone model. Thus, the palette of compatible mobile telephones can be
expanded, keeping the device future proof.
