Vehicle Compatibility


General: The Z-N966 does fit in vehicles featuring a 2-DIN mounting provision for vehicle-specific radio panels or 2DIN mounting kits.

  1. The Z-N966 does only fit into 2-DIN mounting slots aligned straight (90° angle) relative to the dashboard surface. The surface of the dashboard around the mounting slot should not be curved excessively in the vertical or horizontal pane.
  2. If a vehicle-specific 2-DIN mounting kit is deployed, kit must be designed to accept a mounting metal frame height of 113 mm. „Premium cover kits“ are an exception. They need to offer an aperture of at least 178 x 102 mm for the direct installation of the device, without the need to use of the metal mounting frame included in the set.
  3. Due to the large 9“ display, care must be taken to identify potential coverage of safety-related items in the cockpit, such as hazard warning light switch, airbag areas, etc. which may become obscured by the device front panel, impairing the respective function. ZENEC assumes no liability for vehicles where the type approval / operating license is at risk. Depending on the vehicle model, storage compartments, document holders, etc. may also become impaired in their function.
