This looks pretty good, hopefully it'll perform better than the dynavin.

Sp psyched for this

I saw this a week and a bit ago as I was looking at the Dynavin and Hualaghan. Thank goodness i'd spotted it before I went for them

Gonna order one in the next few weeks I reckon.
Just not sure which camera to get.

I like the ones combined with the boot release since they'll be the most centered rather than the off to left or right hand side number plate light.

This looks good, will have to research this some more.

I was hoping for some android integration though.

It does look very good, I like all the integration into the BMW CAN system. Wonder about dealer software updates. Also fearful this will be for Europe only.

So if you have the current Logic 7, this will integrate fine?

Never mind, I only see analog connections, no digital.

I like that this unit integrates the heated seat switch bar right into the face plate instead of in ashtray like Dynavin.

Wonder if the face plate sticks out from dash @ bottom like Dynavin?

This appears to be best unit out there so far - but until they build a unit that does NOT require the relocation/retention of the oem radio to enable chimes and dealer upgrades I'll stay with what I have...

Awesome

Ah thats great to see. Where did you find it?
Annoyingly it seems like most of the info and reviews on zenec products is german.

The screen is much larger than I expected.
Was worried since it was smaller than dynavin etc it might be pointless but that looks great.

I was looking at it out of context and hadn't factored in the slight drop below the oem bottom limit to allow more room.

Thanks

A german forum discussing the same!
PAGE SIX onwards has PHOTOS and review from a guy who got one.
Use googlechrome to autotranslate the whole page and its easy reading

Is the Zenec best performing "oem looking" head unit out there right now? It seems to be.
Does anyone know if US maps are available?


What about this one? ANyone seen this one before?? The buttons and screen look very oem.

http://www.dvdgpsnav.com/car-dvd-bmw...avi-radio.html

Answering my own question... it looks like the zenec maps for North America are available through zenec. The unit ships with European maps, but US/Canada are available for about $69.

Has anyone tried installing one of these on a North American model (with the BMW Professional Radio)?
I was told by Zenec that the E3215 is not compatible with North American cars.
Any thoughts?

Sprechen zie deutch nicht.
Nicht verstanden
What makes this better than any Dynavin clone.
Looks like it has the same overhang on the bottom due
to the DVD player.(well the overhang is in the picture
anyway)
Is there and English site or button?
Yes ,At the bottom of the zenec bottom.

Why bring this old unit up from the dead files
when there are newer eonon units.
The last time this thread was brought up was 2014

The radio is not the compatibility issue whether you have idrive or logic 7 is the issue both things
make all these units incompatible .
(This applys to all aftermarket head units)
The only thing that is compatible with logic 7 is the dynavin n6 and that is not compatible with idrive.
