Innovative multimedia and advanced navigation system for many models from VW, SEAT, and SKODA: The Z-E2026 is a vehicle specific navitainer,
which blends in perfectly with the original look of your vehicle, and can be conveniently controlled from the high resolution 7“/17.8 cm touchscreen display.
With the Z-E2026 you are able to experience an amazing range of entertainment options in your vehicle. Thanks to its new multituner system with
background scan, FM phase-diversity tuner for FM and DAB+, the full radio program variety can be enjoyed on the road. The built-in CD/DVD
drive and a USB port (with 0.8 m extension wire) on the backside of the device will allow you to play the latest audio and video formats. For the
sound quality optimization, a DSP based loudspeaker management system (equalizer / time aligment) is part of the tuning options. A high output
4 x 50 watts amplifier provides power, dynamics and musical enjoyment.
The powerful Bluetooth module from Parrot, now with database support, gives you easy access to telephone functions and music streaming.

fifth tuner takes care of the TMC traffic data reception.

equipped for further developments in the multimedia area.
Powerful DSP presets for
optimum in-vehicle use

system offers to tailor the in-car frequency response by ear,
