Hardware & Mounting
How do I mount the Mobile Display Screen in my vehicle?
There are multiple options for mounting your LINX. Your LINX is provided with a LINX gimbal mount which you can install in a location suitable to your preference. Alternately an optional LINX vehicle specific A-Pillar mount is available for purchase for many popular models.
Does LINX come as a kit?
Yes. LINX is supplied as a standard kit (including: Controller, Display, Gimbal Mount, Wiring Loom, USB Cable and Mounting Rail). Optional accessories are also available which allow additional functions to be utilised on the LINX system.
Is LINX waterproof?
No. Both the Controller and Display are not waterproof and because of this, the Controller should be mounted within the cabin of the vehicle.
What is the battery life of the LINX Display?
The LINX Display's battery life will vary, depending on usage and conditions. Used wisely, it is expected to last approximately 8 hours from full charge.
If my LINX Display breaks, are replacements available for purchase?
Yes. The Display is available for purchase should a replacement be required.
If I replace the display, will i lose my customised settings?
No, your customised settings won't be lost. All program settings are stored on the Controller and therefore, will be automatically restored when the new Display is paired.
If I lose or damage the Display, can I still use my accessories?
Yes, you can still use your accessories. All program settings are stored on the controller and therefore, any switchboard automated settings will still continue to function (i.e. spotlights on with high beam). Any air operated accessories (i.e. air locker and air suspension) automatically activates the compressor without the need for switches.However, for Air Lockers to operate without the Display, original Air Locker switches will need to be fitted as a backup.
Software
Is my Linx Upgradeable?
Yes, it most certainly is. Preloaded with 6 module applications, LINX is a user upgradeable platform developed with continued expansion in mind. With dozens of other modules either planned or currently under development, LINX owners can further enhance their vehicle with additional accessories and enjoy the benefits of LINX integration.
Can I utilise the standard Android features of the display?
The LINX Mobile Display Screen’s primary function is to offer a seamless connection between the driver, LINX Controller and a range of vehicle mounted 4WD accessories. Being an Android device with 3G compatibility, it can perform many secondary functions such as media streaming, Android security functions and GPS navigation. Users should note that the introduction of additional applications to the LINX Mobile Display Screen may impact the device’s performance in controlling linked accessories.
Can I download the LINX software onto another phone or screen?
No. The LINX software was designed to run on a dedicated mobile display unit to ensure the highest level of ongoing support and performance with future LINX programs.
In the latest LINX update, what has changed?
The Firmware 1.1 update included a Pressure Control Dropdown feature and GPS speedometer enhancements.
Can I download and run other apps to my LINX device (such as Google Maps)?
Yes. In fact, Google Maps is already pre-installed on LINX, and while we don't recommend overloading the device with 3rd party apps, other apps can be downloaded.

Can I colour match the display to my instrument cluster?
To complete the integrated look, the LINX mobile display theme colour, brightness & contrast can be user adjusted to match your vehicle instrument cluster with auto night mode dimming the display to your pre-set level when headlamps are switched on.
Is there an audible warning when the alarm is triggered?
No. At this stage, there is only a visual alert on the display when the alarm is triggered.
Can LINX be used to control a trailer air bag system?
Yes. Fitted with the Pressure Control Kit (plus optional isolation kit), the air bag module can be used to control a trailer air bag system.
Would you advise using the switchboard for winching in/out functions?
Although it is possible, we would advise against using the switchboard for winching functions due to potential safety risks.
