Head unit spe­cial­ist Zenec has an­nounced its new flag­ship ‘uni­ver­sal’ mul­ti­me­dia deck with 6.2-inch touch screen and all the bells and whis­tles.

The com­pany refers to its new Z-N626 head unit as a ‘Nav­i­ceiver’ which of course states, right there, the unit’s pos­ses­sion of nav­i­ga­tion and ra­dio re­ceiver… oh but there’s a whole lot more too.

For starters, the nav­i­ga­tion is via the lat­est cus­tomised NNG with iGO primo NextGen Nav­i­ga­tion pack­age for Aus­tralia & New Zealand (op­tional Hema 4WD maps). It fea­tures 3D land­marks, en­hanced junc­tion views, text-tospeech and much more.

Par­rot Blue­tooth al­lows pair­ing with up to three mo­bile phones with up to 1000 con­tacts each while two phones can be used si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Mu­sic stream­ing from ap­pro­pri­ate devices is also catered for.

The Z-N626 fea­tures DAB+ ra­dio (an­tenna sold sep­a­rately) and AM/FM. Dig­i­tal ra­dio is be­com­ing more preva­lent in ma­jor cities around Aus­tralia and its sound qual­ity and sta­tion choices set it apart from the tra­di­tional ana­logue bands. In fact the unit has twin tuners for both ana­logue and dig­i­tal, with Zenec stat­ing the mul­ti­ple tuners work in uni­son to pro­vide a bet­ter qual­ity ra­dio re­cep­tion. An au­to­matic up­date func­tion creates new sta­tion lists based on the strong­est sig­nals when trav­el­ling be­tween re­gions.

On the au­dio side of things we have a 192kHz DAC sup­port­ing 24-bit FLAC files via USB and, of course, there’s added sup­port for just about ev­ery other for­mat in­clud­ing phys­i­cal me­dia by way of CD and DVD. As is al­most in­dus­try stan­dard, there’s a four chan­nel am­pli­fier ca­pa­ble of 50 watts out­put. The USB MP3 play­back abil­ity (two USB ports) al­lows the use of Gra­cenote which scans mu­sic from your li­braries to cre­ate play­back lists with your favourite tracks. Au­dio fine-tun­ing can be achieved via on-board time align­ment and an 11-band para­met­ric equaliser while the unit fea­tures 3-volts out­puts (4.2/5.1 outs), mul­ti­zone and two video out­puts. A re­verse cam­era in­put al­lows au­to­matic switch-on once re­verse gear is se­lected and fea­tures a num­ber of view­ing/guid­ance op­tions. The Z-N626 is also com­pat­i­ble with steer­ing wheel con­trol.

The new Z-N626 ‘Nav­i­ceiver’ is avail­able via Zenec’s spe­cial­ist dealer net­work.
