The Z-E3766 uses a modern Bluetooth solution from iVT developed for usage in the automotive environment. The module supports the Bluetooth 4.1 profile, which ensures a high compatibility of the ZENEC Z-E3766 and all device relevant Bluetooth functions in combination with most actual smartphone brands and models.Exceptions for Bluetooth function or profile components that do not seem to run correctly usually originate from provider-specific smartphone firmware (third-party provider).In order to be sure that a given smartphone is compatible with the relevant BT functions of the target device, it is advisable to test a given device combination in the shop of an authorized retailer before purchase.Additional information:
Some smartphones require a confirmation to allow access to the phone book contact list. The phonebook access confirmation needs to be performed by the user, if necessary.If you encounter connection problems, always check to see if a newer firmware version is available for your phone and install it. After a smartphone update you should delete the previous device pairing on the device, restart the smartphone and pair it anew.
AW: The Z-E3766 is suitable for motor homes based on Fiat Ducato III vehicles. The vehicle must be equipped with a factory radio provision. The Z-E3766 is not compatible with vehicles that are equipped with a factory radio or factory navigation system.
On the first power-on and if the ZENEC device was separated from power, I cannot find a radio station?
AW: Right after the first power-on process and after separation from the vehicle battery, the Z-E3766 will perform an automatic radio station search. Depending on the vehicle location and scanned frequency band the station search process may take up to 2.5 minutes. During the search period radio stations cannot be accessed nor selected by the user.
AW: The Z-E3766 features an integrated DAB+ twin-tuner. For the reception of digital radio stations, an antenna supporting the DAB standard must be present and connected to the device.
If your motor caravan does not offer a suitable DAB antenna system ex works, vehicle needs to be equipped with an aftermarket DAB antenna solution or DAB splitter, to enable reception of digital radio programs.
AW: The Z-E3766 contains a DAB+ twin tuner, providing a dynamic list of DAB+ radio stations currently receivable in the area. The station sorting corresponds to the sequence of the DAB Ensembles and their short ID (e.g. 5C, 7A, 7D, 8D, 12C). The radio stations in each Ensemble do follow the provider station list sequence. Further sorting of stations in the list is not possible. The Ensembles and radio stations are updated by the automatic background scan approx. every 2 minutes.
AW: The Z-E3766 provides two options to integrate steering wheel control buttons.
- The Z-E3766 features a direct interface, which supports steering wheel control buttons of compatible vehicles without further measures, e.g. the buttons work “out-of-the-box”. However, the buttons can be re-assigned to suit personal preferences in the SWC learning mode setup page. For this, please study p.7 of the device user manual.
2. The Z-E3766 does also come with an IR-In input for the connection of vehicle-specific stalk interfaces, such as ZEY-CTS-FAZ0115 for FIAT Ducato. For the connection of such an SWC interface, another cable (ZEZ-ZENECLEAD) is required, linking the stalk interface to the device (both items are separately available accessories).
AW: “ALT” is an abbreviation for “Alternative” and refers to a configurable function key, (see device user manual under “Misc Setup” p.61) where a specific function can be assigned via the Setup menu. This unit features a ALT soft key on the front panel and a ALT button field in the HMI. The following direct function assignments for the “ALT” button are available: (CAM/NAVI/EQ/Setup/BT-Music/BT/DISP/iPod/USB/HDMI/Android Auto/AV-IN/FM/DAB/CarPlay).
AW: An important feature for motor homes is the CAM soft key on the device front, allowing to directly control to the rear view camera (if installed), which allows, during normal driving, to invoke the rear view camera picture with the keystroke of the CAM button, at any time.
AW: During the development of the Z-E3756 (predecessor model), direct comparisons between matte (etched) capacitive touch screen glass and the high-gloss type version have been done. The side-by-side comparison clearly puts the glossy version in front of the matte panel. The advantage gf the glossy touch screen is the higher contrast level with improved readability of text fonts under direct sunlight. On top of this, the z-E3766 features an internal “back masking” color filter, which further enhances the color fidelity and the contrast of the display.
The display brightness of my Z-E3766 seems too dark at daylight? I am driving with daytime running light
AW: The Z-E3766 has in the device settings menu, two selectable control options for the automatic TFT display brightness adjustment. At the device, go to: Setup > TFT Settings > TFT Control > “Car” or “Navi”.
As factory default setting, “Car” is enabled which means that the device dims the screen when low or high beam is activated. For the “Car” based TFT screen brightness control, the “Illu signal” at the ISO-connector is used. Daytime Running Lights with TFT Control set to “Car” mode will cause dimmed screen with the headlights turned on.
Therefore, users driving with daytime running lights should set the TFT Control to “Navi” so that the day/night time zone data is used to control TFT screen brightness. Note: The “Navi” setting will cause the device to start up in night mode until an actual GPS time signal for device master clock is retrieved via GPS downstream. This may take up to 30 seconds
AW: Enable Bluetooth on your iPhone. Then connect the iPhone USB cable to the proper cable extension coming from the device (USB1). CarPlay should now start without any further ado. Else, please read the info given on p.39 of the device’s owner manual.
For a good read on the general function scope of CarPlay including an overview of CarPlay supported apps and additional information, go to the official Apple website: https://www.apple.com/en/ios/carplay/
AW: Google Android Auto is not (yet) available in all countries worldwide. Google itself does not publish any availability data for the Android Auto app. You can, however, register at www.android.com/auto with your email address to be notified of the Android Auto availability in your country.
AW: To use Android Auto with your Android Smartphone, at least Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a higher version of the Android operation system must be installed on your smartphone.
To use Android Auto on your ZENEC device, you have to adjust time and date on your ZENEC device correctly.

AW: No, but there is an optionally available accessory item called “GBA-HDMIBOX” (1 x HDMI, 2 x USB) which works with the Z-E3766.
AW: During the navigation announcement, the volume of the voice announcement can be adjusted by the volume rotary encoder or via the horizontal volume scale pop-up of the Z-E3766. Simply turn the volume knob of the unit, or touch and move the VOL slider during the navigation announcement to adjust voice guidance to the desired volume. The last VOL adjustment level is retained.
AW: In order to keep the map content of your Navigation micro-SD card up to date, it is possible to update map database with a PC tool called “Toolbox” via the Naviextras online update portal. On Naviextras you have access to free and pay type updates as well as other add-on’s. There are two navigation packages for the Z-E3766 which come with either 3-years map update subscription (Z-EMAP66-MH3/EHG3) or 7 years subscription (Z-EMAP66-MH7/EHG7), allowing you to update the map content for the period of three / seven years after first (GPS) activation at no cost. Within a 12 month time frame, TomTom (map provider) usually releases two content updates which get offered for download on Naviextras (3rd party offering, no guarantees can be made for the update cadence).
Navigation software updates, Add-On content und map updates are available here: https://zenec.naviextras.com
Disclaimer: The card update subscription duration can only be guaranteed in its entirety in conjunction with a new device which is put into service together with a new navigation card. For used devices with navigation packages purchased later, limitations apply because the date of the first use of device is crucial. Naviextras places a time stamp point on the device once first sat connection is established.
AW: Please note that ZENEC, for west and east Europe map coverage of your motor home navigation package deploys digital map data provided by TomTom (formerly known as “Tele Atlas”). Even if you have recently updated the navigation map content it is still possible, that digital map data content is imprecise or faulty in areas such as intersections, new roads and other places recently added. In such cases device may provide you with incorrect routing instructions. In such cases, use the respective TomTom tool to report errors to TomTom map share service directly: http://www.tomtom.com/mapshare/tools/
I cannot find exact information regarding the country coverage of the map on the navigation microSD card of the device?
AW: The map data on the navigation microSD card covers 47 countries, as follows:
Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Vatican City

AW: The microSD card reader on the front of the Z-E3766 is for the operation of the GPS navigation software package only. Avoid removing the microSD card during active route guidance or/and when device is in navigation mode. Use of the microSD card reader for music or video file playback is not possible.
AW: It may happen that the file system of the memory stick got damaged, or that the file allocation table of the data carrier is defect due to erroneous write cycles. There may be different reason for this to happen, such as usage or storage of data carriers and problems occurring at the initial format process.
In such cases, you must perform a full format with your PC or notebook, to make it work correctly again.
Info: If the data carrier after formatting is still not recognized by the device, it may be due to an incompatibility of the disk controller chip itself. In such a case, you should use a different USB data carrier of another brand or manufacturer.
AW: Make sure your USB data carrier has been formatted in FAT32 – prior to use. Zenec recommends the use of high quality USB sticks only. Study the corresponding key features of the ZENEC device, for supported USB flash memory data carriers. Note that both USB 2.0 connectors on the backside of the device are limited to 1000 mA maximum current. Since many external hard disk models will easily consume higher operating currents, Zenec does not endorse the use of such products. Additional info for troubleshooting of USB flash memory devices and MP3 playback:
AW: Long press of the HOME sensor button invokes the audio quick-adjustment menu. (See main device manual p.63 ).
AW: This device allows to pair up to seven smart phones, whereas only one can be connected to the device. The auto connect function is available for the last smartphone connected to device only.
AW: Zenec devices include under-voltage protection sensor circuitry to avoid low voltage boot process to safeguard the unit against software crashes that can occur during under voltage conditions. The root cause of device reboot problems can usually be attributed to the on-board batteries or power supply cables and connections, causing the voltage to drop below 10.5 volts during the engine start-up process.
In case of frequent device reboots after engine starts, please consult your vehicle service point or the motor home dealer to review your car´s starter or second battery and the wiring.
AW: No, it is not possible to edit Favourite contact entries on the device. You need to delete the Favourite and re-sync the phonebook on your Zenec device. Then save a contact as Favourite again.
AW: Updates can be downloaded in the download area of the ZENEC homepage under> Support> Software updates.
AW: Most problems originate from not officially licensed by Apple cables. Therefore make sure, that either an original cable, or else at least a licensed Apple Lightning cable is used.
Otherwise, perhaps this little trick can help:
Power off the iPhone – Power off the ZENEC device.
Switch on the ZENEC device – switch on the iPhone and pair it. Unplug the Lightning cable, reconnect it – then everything should function normally.
Make sure, the iOS version the iOS version of your Apple iPhone is always up to date.
AW: The TPEG function in the ZENEC navigation software is based on freely broadcasted TPEG data (with country-specific coverage). Out of the box, TPEG function is purposedly deactivated. Firstly, make sure free TPEG data is available in your country of use. Next, check if your device runs on a device software that supports the TPEG function. In case of Z-E3766, this is from version v1.1.1 and up. Direct link to SW-update:
Furthermore, perform a navigation software update via Toolbox. The navigation software needs to be at least version v22.214.171.124092 of March 2020 or newer.
