The E>GO convinces with a capacitive touch-sensitive 9“/22.9 cm real-glass display. Via its hard key bar at the front panel, the Z-E2055 is perfectly suited for totally straightforward operation while driving.

The Z-E2055 provides for an easy and totally safe smartphone use in the car. The USB(1) port on the device lets you dock your phone directly to the infotainer – the Z-E2055 is Apple CarPlay and Google Android AutoTM certified. Making phone calls, use Google or Apple maps to find a destination, play music and send or receive messages is true mobile convenience where the choice is yours: control and operate apps either via device touchscreen or with the Apple Siri or Google’s voice assistants.
The clear digital radio reception of the integrated DAB+ tuner is impressive, while the Z-E2055 does score with several tuner comfort functions in addition: MOT Slideshow, DLS text, DAB<>DAB Service Following, and Comfort Scan. The high-sensitivity FM RDS tuner ensures good reception of conventional FM stations in regions where the DAB+ broadcasting network is not established sufficiently well yet.

The active crossover with selectable 12 dB or 24 dB/oct. highpasss filter for front and rear speakers allows the perfect integration of high quality aftermarket speaker systems and amplifiers for smooth and detailed music reproduction.
Lastly, the up-to-date Bluetooth 4.2 module with advanced hands-free functions gives you control over the simple management of contact favorites, a swift phonebook contact search using initial letter of given or family name, or convenient A2DP music streaming.

Notes on the Bluetooth hands-free function
The Z-E2055 uses a modern Bluetooth solution from Sunplus developed for usage in the automotive environment. The module supports the Bluetooth 4.2 profile, which ensures a high compatibility of the ZENEC Z-E2055 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.
