ZENEC E>GO Z-E2014M – 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 vehicle-specific naviceiver. Today, ZENEC is the undisputed 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 40 models of vehicle.
E>GO – clever design, perfect system solution
The E>GO concept is a system solution 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,
without hours of installation work.
Of particular importance is the perfect integration into the existing vehicle electronics. E>GOs are designed to integrate into the vehicle‘s internal CAN data network in a really uncomplicated way.
Straightforward installation, an immense range of functions and an ingeniously simple concept of operation – that makes E>GO so exceptional
and successful. With the knowledge of the peculiarities of the individual
vehicles in the background, the next E>GO generation now lines up: with
many innovative features and, key for ZENEC, a simplified ease of use.
E>GO Z-E2014M – custom-fit to your VW
The Z-E2014M 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 models.
The Z-E2014M 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. The
functionality of factory installed components remains intact.
E>GO Z-E2014M – navigation, entertainment, communication
Experience audio and video in high quality via iPod/iPhone or USB: The
Z-E2014M is an innovative media station, perfectly suited for playback
of digital media: MP3, WMA, Xvid, and AVI.
The Bluetooth suite of the E>GO Z-E2014M comes from Parrot, leading
supplier of hands-free systems worldwide and guarantor for comfortable
call handling. Thanks to the innovative audio DSP, unwanted ambient
sounds can be filtered out more efficiently and voices understood more
The Z-E2014M combines up-to-date entertainment features with an innovative SD card based GPS navigation system. High resolution maps
of 43 European countries with Premium POIs, integrated TMC/TMC Pro
receiver, Text-to-Speech announcement of street names and the many
nav functions make this E>GO the perfect navigator.
FM Tuner with DSP
Steering wheel remote control integration
Multifunction Display (MFD+)
The analog radio receiver front-end of ZENEC‘s
E>GO naviceiver features a DSP software algorithm to provide noise masking for low level FM
station broadcast signals and radio playback of
improved clarity.
The Z-E2014M is connected via the vehicle-specific CAN bus interface to the factory installed
steering wheel remote control. The multimedia
functions of the steering wheel remote control remain intact.
E>GO is a perfect fit: The Z-E2014M 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.
OE parking sensor integration
A/C control status info integration
Optimized ease of use
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.
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 clearly designed menus are self-explanatory
and intuitive to operate. Large control fields and
a logically structured navigation ensure that the
E>GO can also be controlled in safety when you
are driving.
