ZENEC Z-N426: modern 2-DIN DAB+ infotainer

Communicate on the move, listen to radio, enjoy music – with the Z-N426 the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC now has another high performance infotainer in its product range. The Z-N426 offers modern entertainment functions, mature DAB+ receiver technology, excellent sound quality, and the greatest possible ease of use. But that’s not all: thanks to SmartLink Direct the Z-N426 enables comfortable integration and use of Android and iOS based smartphones.

But also for those looking for a versatile sat nav, the ZENEC is a clever solution: with the microSDHC card Z-N426-SDFEU available separately the Z-N426 can be expanded into a navigation system with a full range of features.


Whereas Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto only support certain selected apps from Apple and Google, the Z-N426 goes a step further: thanks to Smartlink Direct every installed app can be presented on the display of the infotainer and used. Simply dock the cellphone, and the smartphone screen will be mirrored on the user interface of the Z-N426. In the case of Android based smartphones SmartLink Direct even enables direct control of the apps from the touchscreen of the Z-N426 – naturally also sat nav apps.


If using smartphone sat nav apps is not enough, you can retrofit the Z-N426 to a high end naviceiver with the microSDHC card Z-N426-SDFEU available separately. With detailed maps for 47 European countries, more than 6 million points of interest, 3D Auto-Zoom for junctions and roundabouts, free map updates for one year and TMC function, getting the latest navigation technology in your car is thus straightforward and at a reasonable price.

The combination of Z-N426 and sat nav software package makes a perfectly matched functional unit with a number of advantages: for example, the playback of music during active route guidance, or the continuation of route guidance after short stops (refueling).


The Z-N426 is a top modern entertainer that impresses with its wide range of functions. Radio reception of outstanding sound quality – that is what the integrated DAB+ twin tuner is good for. It ensures noise-free, crystal clear listening enjoyment of the digital format, and scores with a dynamic station list, MOT Slideshow and DLS text. A high-sensitivity FM RDS tuner ensures outstanding analog radio reception – for example in areas where there is still no DAB broadcasting network.

The Z-N426 has two USB ports: these are not just for docking smartphones but also for playing a wide range of A/V formats from a USB medium.

The comprehensive Bluetooth unit ensures a hands-free system so there is no stress, simple management of contact favorites, and comfortable A2DP music streaming.


The design of the Z-N426 has undergone all-round optimization to ensure one thing: driving safety. The screen size benefits from the most important functional elements being reduced to an ergonomic button bar that is used to control the Z-N426 during the journeyas required. A large capacitive 6.8″/17.3 cm TFT display with a high-gloss glass front ensures clarity and excellent contrast. Thanks to the intuitive user interface it can be safely used at any 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 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%.
