On ignition of the engine my XZENT device powers off and reboots again.
XZENT units include a low-voltage protection to avoid undersupply for certain integrated circuits (ICs) that may not work properly without correct and steady supply voltage. Please consult your car service point or car garage to review your car´s battery and wiring.
How is the clock display synchronized?
The time is synchronized via DAB+. It is required to equip the device with a suitable DAB antenna. As long as you can successfully scan at least 1 DAB station, the time will be synced after approx. 1 minute. Automatic re-synchronization during daily usage requires to enter the DAB source. It is also possible to manually set the clock, in this case detected time differences, DaylightSavingTime or power disconnection requires manual re-adjustment.
Which requirements does my car have to fulfill that the XZENT unit can be installed?
You need a 2-DIN slot for X-222. Depending on your car brand and model you may also need a CAN/STALK adapter or a mounting/installation kit. Your XZENT dealer may assist you here in detail.
Which requirements does the SWC learning interface of the X-222 have for the programmable SWC keys?
Only analog SWCs are supported. Please refer to the A3-size paper wiring diagram included at the accessory about the wire connection. Many XZENT dealers may offer this service to you. Alternatively you can also purchase an optional car specific Stalk interface via IR-IN (see next FAQ entry).
Can I operate my XZENT device with my existing steering wheel control (SWC) elements?
Your SWC may be connected with an optional CAN/Stalk adapter. Details of functions (such as Mute, Pickup, Volume, Skip) are depending on the CAN/Stalk adapter itself. Please also note that your selected CAN/Stalk interface must be compatible to the XZENT IR/IN interface and also that an optional adapter cable ZEZ-XZENTLEAD is needed. Please contact your local XZENT dealer for further assistance. X-222 also offers another connection option see previous listed FAQ entry.
Can I use the built-in OE hands free system of my car?
No, this is not possible. Stated models of XZENT already include a hands free feature. To avoid inter operability issues it is strongly suggested to deactivate your car's built-in OE hands free system. You can do this by removing the correct fuse for that part (please read your car's manual).

No. The background wallpapers are stored in EEPROM which is limited and not directly accessible to SD or USB data ports.
Does the device generate lines for the camera view and are they dynamically following the steering wheel position?
No, the device does not generate any lines for the camera view. In case you prefer camera lines, you should purchase a camera model which draws the lines by the camera itself.
How do I connect my mobile phone?
You need to connect your XZENT via your smart phone. Your XZENT device is only visible to other Bluetooth devices if you enter the BT-source of your XZENT with active page BT-Settings & More, respectively press the Smartphone Icon on X-222 (see manual).

You will find this information also in your manual – please enter four times zero (0000). At X-222 the set PIN will also be displayed at lower bottom of the screen in pair list mode.

It is not possible to edit favorites. However, you have to delete and re-assign a new contact after you refreshed the downloaded phonebook on your XZENT device.
Changes in contacts of my smartphone are not adopted automatically?
Your smartphone contacts will only be downloaded after your confirmation during the first connection after search&pair. Any later changes made to your contacts must be refreshed manually (see manual).

No, the device does not implement a database for search. We suggest to save your most used contacts as a favorite. You can assign up to 6 of them.
What do I need to consider on usage of USB/SD for media playback?
Please make sure your SD-cards/USB-sticks are FAT32 formatted. XZENT suggests using high quality products with a maximum of 32 GB capacity. Higher capacity may work but is not guaranteed.
New added folders are added on the end of the XZENT mediaplayer list?
The XZENT mediaplayer does not run on a OS like Windows or MacOS. Files will be read as created 1 by 1 which means that later added files are saved on higher memory addresses. You can compare this to a CD-R disc, where the read sequence is from inside to outside and later added data to a multisession disc will be appended at the end.
What is the sequence of the folder presented by the XZENT mediaplayer on the GUI?
X-222 sorts the folder alphanumerically.
Is it possible to play A/V files from my smart phone?
It is not officially supported via USB. However, some phones may offer a simplified USB access option (please check your smart phone manual). It is possible with to play audio and music via Bluetooth A2DP.
My USB/SD device is not detected by XZENT even after new format.
It may happen that the file system of your device is damaged: by high frequent write/re-write cycles, inappropriate usage (including storage), errors on first format or some other reasons.
Windows OS for example offers 2 different ways of format, quick-format and full-format. In such problem cases it is advised to use full-format and make sure you use FAT32 as file system.
Note: if even after full format, your data devices are still not detected, it may result from an incompatibility of data carrier controller-ICs. Please try a different brand/maker.
Is there an automatic volume increase on broadcasted traffic announcements?
No, depending on the device a pop up prompting “Traffic announcement” or an Icon is displayed if the function is set ON.
I want to mirror music and videos wirelessly using Wi-Fi on the screen of the X-222, so I need the GBA-WIFI HDMI Dongle, available as an accessory. Which smartphones are compatible with the GBA-WIFI dongle?
For Miracast mode at least Android 4.4 or higher is needed. In DNLA mode, depending on the source device manufacturer, Airplay requires iOS5 or higher. Additionally, check the smartphone's product info. Please make sure that the dongle is set to the correct mode.
I want to use the GBA-WIFI dongle. Which source devices would be compatible?
All display devices (like a TV) with a standard HDMI type A input, such as the X-222, may use it as target display. Additionally, a 5 V DC power source (e.g. USB) is required. We suggest using our extension cable GBA-HDMIBOX.
