What PORSCHE vehicle does the Z-E7015S target?
The Z-E7015S is made for and suitable for replacement of the Porsche CD24 radio and the navigation system PCM 2.1 (device color: volcano grey / black matte). Please refer also to the car compatibility list.
No fader function in combination with a MOST sound system?
On vehicles equipped with a MOST sound system, the fader adjustment front <> rear is not working on the Z-E7015S (no function). Therefore, leave the setting of the front to rear fader in its neutral or center position.
Pop noise in combination with a MOST sound system?
If the vehicle is factory fitted with a MOST sound system, a pop noise may be heard under certain circumstances when the OE amplifier is switching on and off.
MFDF and on-board computer are not supported?
The Z-E7015S has no connection to the MFD (driver information system) and the on-board computer of the vehicle. So both the on-board computer and MFD are not supported by the ZENEC device.
OE voice activation button on PORSCHE steering wheel?
The button present on the steering wheel remote control for activation of Porsche voice control (OE device) is not supported. E.g. pressing this button will not cause the voice control function of the Z-E7015S to engage.

Why do I need software updates and where do I find them?
My ZENEC device navigates incorrectly. Some streets aren’t even shown on the navigation screen.
We use maps from the market leader ‘here.com’ for Australia and New Zealand. It is possible that incorrect map data may cause a navigation error. If you experience this, we recommend that this should be reported directly to ‘here.com’ to enable them to correct their mapping data.
Why does the Z-E7015S reboot when I start the engine of my car?
To protect the device electronics from under voltage conditions and resulting malfunction of function modules inside the device the ZENEC mainboard and the MCU constantly measure the power supply voltage via sensor, to trigger a shut-down (and reboot) if the supply voltage drops below 9 V. The automatic sense process avoids faults on the device operation and incomplete loading of software data. This is a device self protection mechanism and not a defect. If the device does reboot after engine start from time to time, it is recommended to see your car dealer for an inspection of the condition of the battery, and or if wires and contacts are corroded to cause supply voltage drop below 9V.
What should I consider when using SD cards?
The SD card reader on the front side of the Z-E7015S device is reserved for use by the navigation SD-card exclusively. Avoid removing the SD card from the device when device is running. Playback of video or audio files on SD card by the reader on the front panel is not possible, even with the Navi SD-card removed.
The USB hub keeps changing the drive indication?
