How do I update my LINX software?
Detailed instructions on how to update your LINX device can be found on page 16 of the LINX Operation Guide. You can download a copy here or view online.
My LINX is displaying a ‘failed to check for updates’ message, what do I do?
For a small number of new users and users who haven’t previously updated their LINX you might need to manually update your LINX. From the web browser on your LINX display unit, visit linx.arb.com.au and click on the ‘download’ (down arrow) in the top right corner of the website.
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.
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.
