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 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.

Autonomous Driving: Optical Data Network Enhances Safety

KDPOF Demos Seamless and EMC-compliant Network Integration at AESIN Conference and at IEEE SA Ethernet & IP @ Auto Tech Day

Autonomous Driving: Optical Data Network Enhances Safety

KDPOF’s optical data network enhances safety for autonomous driving

KDPOF – leading supplier for gigabit transceivers over POF (Plastic Optical Fiber) – provides their optical network technology in order to enhance safety for autonomous driving. „For safety-related functions such as the data network backbone, autonomous driving requires redundant systems in order to increase safety and avoid the autonomous car locking up if one of the systems is disabled in some way,“ explained Ruben Perez de Aranda, CTO and Co-founder of KDPOF. Reliability analysis shows that a technology redundancy like optical and copper cabling provides the highest reliability. Consequently, more and more OEMs are now considering Plastic Optical Fiber. KDPOF will demonstrate the seamless and EMC-compliant network integration with POF at the AESIN (Automotive Electronics Innovation) Conference on October 2, 2018 in Solihull, UK, and at the IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day on October 9-10, 2018 in London, UK.

EMC Lessons Learned on Gigabit Ethernet Implementation for ADAS & AV

In his presentation „EMC Lessons Learned on Gigabit Ethernet Implementation for ADAS & AV“ at the AESIN Conference on October 2, 2018 at 16:30, Ruben Perez de Aranda will describe the lessons learned in the iterative design process with the final goal of bringing into the market a mass-produced automotive Gigabit Ethernet PHY integrated in an ECU and meeting the most stringent EMC specifications. „This grows more important as in-car network speeds increase to accommodate the demands of driverless systems,“ he added. „Higher speeds are achieved by wider use of the electromagnetic spectrum.“ This situation makes the underlying communication system implementation less immune to radiated and conducted noise. It also forces OEMs to impose more and more stringent emissions limits on the electronic components, limits that are often already tighter than the demands imposed by international standards. POF is ideal for the new architectures since it provides natural galvanic isolation between communicating modules and a radiation-free harness.

With the first automotive Gigabit Ethernet POF (GEPOF) transceiver KD1053, KDPOF provides high connectivity with a flexible digital host interface, low latency, low jitter, and low linking time. The transceiver complies with the standard amendment IEEE Std 802.3bv™ and thus fully meets the requirements of carmakers.

About KDPOF

Fabless semiconductor supplier KDPOF provides innovative gigabit and long-reach communications over Plastic Optical Fiber (POF). Making gigabit communication over POF a reality, KDPOF technology supplies 1 Gbps POF links for automotive, industrial, and home networks. Founded in 2010 in Madrid, Spain, KDPOF offer their technology as either ASSP or IP (Intellectual Property) to be integrated in SoCs (System-on-Chips). The adaptive and efficient system works with a wide range of optoelectronics and low-cost large core optical fibers, thus delivering carmakers low risks, costs and short time-to-market.

Shallow form with deep bass response – AXTON’s bass box ATB120

With the ATB120 car audio specialist AXTON presents a powerful bass reflex subwoofer that also scores for its compact dimensions.

Shallow form with deep bass response - AXTON

AXTON’s subwoofer ATB120

Whichever way you look at it: you always find a place for the new bass box ATB120 from car audio specialist AXTON. The shallow form with 20 cm subwoofer chassis and reflex port is guaranteed to fit into almost any trunk with its practical dimensions: Flat on the floor or hidden in the the double floor, fixed on the side panel or even on the rear seat backrest – you’ll appreciate the extremely small footprint.
The bass reflex box ATB120 is designed for music lovers who do not want to compromise on luggage space or bass power on the road. Of minimal size 13.5 x 48.5 x 34.5 cm, the ATB120 produces 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 new bass reflex subwoofer is a completely new design whereby the intended purpose, size of the enclosure, practical suitability, and fitting have been perfectly matched. In the solid enclosure there is a powerful 20 cm woofer at work that packs a punch: With a very stiff cone out of a combination of air dried paper and a woven layer of fiber glass with a butyl rubber surround, and a large 2 x 2 ohms 1.5″/38 mm voice coil on a Kapton former, the driver is well equipped to produce powerful bass with a fast attack.
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.

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.

Highlight – The ZENEC Z-E3756 Sat Nav for the Fiat Ducato

ZENEC’s new Z-E3756 navigation system is judged by the German Car & HiFi magazine (issue 4/2018) to be the perfect sat nav for all motorhomes based on the Fiat Ducato, Citroen Jumper and Peugeot Boxer.

Highlight - The ZENEC Z-E3756 Sat Nav for the Fiat Ducato

Highlight: the Z-E3756 sat nav for Fiat Ducato

Together with the Citroen Jumper and Peugeot Boxer, the Fiat Ducato is the most popular basic vehicle for motorhomes. With the Z-E3756 the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC has a new motorhome navitainer in its product range that integrates perfectly with vehicles based on this platform – technically and visually. The specialist magazine Car & HiFi has thoroughly tested ZENEC’s new camper sat nav in issue 4/2018 over three pages, and is enthusiastic. The testers rate the price/performance as outstanding, awarding the Z-E3756 the ‚Highlight‘ accolade in the ‚Top Class‘ category.

IDEAL CAMPER NAVICEIVER
The Z-E3756 scored with the testers on account of its navigation software being specially designed for camping vehicles. The new navigation engine knows its way around in 47 European countries and includes over 6.5 million Premium Points of Interest. Added to that is an impressively comprehensive camping POI database that offers „information on approx. 20,000 different camping and motorhome stopover sites in almost every European country“.
To make sure you are navigated only along routes suitable for your motorhome, the Z-E3756 gives you a choice of different vehicle profiles so you can enter data specific to your vehicle. „Important parameters like weight, height, length, width and so on can be individually set and then taken into account for selection of the route“, explain the tech journalists. „This eliminates nasty surprises such as bridges that are too low or narrow local through-roads.“ Also taken into account are the different speed limits and speed restrictions in European countries, which also contributes to a relaxed journey.

MOTORHOME SPECIALIST
As the new ZENEC is specifically built for use in the motorhome three cameras can be connected. In addition there is an audio channel for a microphone that is automatically activated on engaging the reverse gear. „But you don’t just see but also hear what is going on behind the vehicle“, explains Car & HiFi, „very practical if you want someone to stand there and help direct.“ The other camera inputs can be used for various other functions, for example as a front camera or as an aid when draining gray water.
The Z-E3756 has an integrated streaming module for transmitting music to external Bluetooth speakers. Audio functions are then controlled via an app from the Android smartphone. „That makes a lot of sense for a camper navigation system“, is the praise to be heard from the tech journalists. „You can then sit in comfort outside at a stopover site and still enjoy the full range of media features of the ZENEC.“

VERSATILE INFOTAINER
The comprehensive infotainment feature set of the Z-E3756 is thoroughly convincing: DAB+ digital radio, CD/DVD drive, Bluetooth, HDMI and two USB inputs ensure optimal entertainment and communication. Added to that is also the option to integrate Android smartphones using Android Auto so you can use compatible apps or online services and control them from the touchscreen of the navitainer.
„Whether during the journey or at a stopover boredom is therefore guaranteed not to arise“ is the resulting judgment of Car & HiFi on the media section, which also turned in a „faultless performance“ in the test lab: „Vanishingly low distortion and noise figures, solid power at the preamp outputs and linear frequency responses are positives to note.“

SUPERB SOUND
Special praise is reserved not only for the integrated DAB+ dual tuner which, according to the tech journalists, „indulges the listener with a crystal clear, noise-free sound and very stable reception“. The numerous audio functions – audio DSP, 10-band graphic EQ, active high- and low-pass filters and 24-bit D/A converter – also impress the testers: „The sound quality from all sources is very good, with the comprehensive setting options of the DSP also allowing high quality audio chains to be controlled.“

COMFORTABLE OPERATION
The tech journalists are particularly impressed by how easy the Z-E3756 is to use: „The capacitive 17.8 cm size touchscreen sits securely behind a glass surface. It reacts rapidly to the touch of a finger and provides a high level of brightness and good contrast for brilliant reproduction.“
At the same time the ease of use according to Car & HiFi is supported by the GUI design: „The clear menus are very nicely done with pleasingly large buttons. Using the controls is therefore safe even while driving.“

SUMMARY
„The ZENEC Z-E3756 is in all respects very well-thought out, and perfectly tailored to the needs and requirements of motorhome travelers“, is the final verdict of the testers, awarding ZENEC’s „perfect travel companion“ in the Fiat Ducato the ‚Highlight‘ accolade.

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.

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.

SmartTOP additional convertible top control for McLaren 570S Spider

Las Vegas, Nevada – April 25, 2018

The company Mods4cars now also offers a retrofit SmartTOP top control for the McLaren 570S Spider. Models 12C and 650S are already supported. The SmartTOP top module is retrofitted to the vehicle and with clever additional functions, makes the everyday cabriolet life easier.

The comfort module allows for the operation of the top with One-Touch. The interior key no longer needs to be held down during the entire movement of the top. „A short tap on the button is enough and the top movement is executed automatically,“ explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow. „Thus our customers have both hands back on the steering wheel faster,“ Sven Tornow continues.

Additionally, the fully automatic operation of the top from a distance via the original vehicle key is made possible. Pressing a key combination on the remote control starts the top movement. This way, the roof can already be opened while the driver is moving toward their vehicle. A change to the vehicle key is not required for this function.

Like every SmartTOP, the comfort module for the McLaren 570S Spider also offers other useful additional functions: Windows can be opened and closed via the remote control. In addition, the One-Touch operation of the wind deflector is possible. If desired, the operating direction of the roof top button can be inverted. The current top movement is not interrupted by starting or stopping the engine. The module can be deactivated at any time.

All functions of the SmartTOP module can be individually programmed according to personal preferences. A USB port attached to the SmartTOP module allows connection to the home PC / Mac. This allows the roof module to be conveniently configured and makes it possible to install software updates, provided free of charge by Mods4cars.

The included plug-and-play adapter with OEM plugs, ensures for an easy installation. By simply plugging together, the connection between SmartTOP and vehicle electronics is established. No cables need to be cut, thereby, a trace-free dismantling is possible at any time.

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.

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%.

SmartTOP convertible top control by Mods4cars for Maserati GranCabrio

Las Vegas, Nevada – April 5, 2018

The manufacturer, Mods4cars, announced that the retrofit SmartTOP convertible roof control for the Maserati GranCabrio is now available. „We are pleased to be able to offer a smart comfort module for the Maserati GranCabrio and thus support yet another exclusive vehicle brand,“ said PR spokesman Sven Tornow.

The SmartTOP roof module is retrofitted to the vehicle and with clever additional functions makes the everyday cabriolet life easier. With it, among other things, One-Touch operation of the top is made possible. Just a short tap and the movement of the top is executed automatically. The interior key no longer needs to be held down continuously.

Furthermore, the operation of the top from a distance via the original vehicle key is also made possible. By pressing a key combination on the remote control, the top can be opened and closed remotely. „This way our customers can open their top as they move toward their vehicle. Conversely, it is possible to remotely close the top, should it suddenly start to rain, for example.“ explains Sven Tornow further. A change to the vehicle key is not required for this function.

Like every SmartTOP, the comfort module for the Maserati GranCabrio also offers other additional useful functions. Programming of the front or all windows, as to whether they should close automatically after the top opens, is now possible. In addition, the windows can be opened and closed via the key fob remote. Starting or stopping the engine does not interrupt the current top movement. The module can also be deactivated at any time.

All functions of the SmartTOP roof module can be programmed according to personal wishes. A USB port attached to the SmartTOP module allows for connection to the home PC/Mac. This allows the roof module to be conveniently configured. It also makes it possible to install software updates which are provided free of charge, by Mods4cars.

The included plug-and-play adapter and easy access make it easy to install. By simply plugging together, the connection between SmartTOP and vehicle electronics is established. No cables need to be cut; thus a traceless dismantling is possible at any time.

The convertible top control for the Maserati GranCabrio is available for 339.00 euro + tax.

Mods4cars offers SmartTOP comfort modules for the following vehicle makes: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.

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.
