Parts Bin: ARB LINX Vehicle Accessory Interface

 

If your vehicle is loaded to the gills with accessories, then your dashboard probably looks like it’s out of an Apollo Command Module.

ARB’s got a slick new LINX interface system that lets you move all of those switches and buttons to a simple touchscreen interface about the same size as a smartphone.

Tailor made for off-roading and overlanding, the LINX interface allows you to control vehicle components like air lockers, regulate on-board air compressors for your tires or suspension, and turn off/on electrical accessories, including fog lights or auxiliary lights.

What’s even cooler is ARB’s LINX system has a built-in speedometer that can correct for oversize tires or gear changes. It also functions as a battery monitor, so you won’t sweat running low on juice while you’re powering a lot of electrical accessories.

ARB made the LINX system upgradable and expandable, so you can take advantage of new features that are currently under development. You can update the LINX with a wireless Internet connection.

The display is customizable, so you have easier access to the functions you use the most. All-in-all, the LINX system looks to be a smart way to de-clutter your dash, while giving you better control of your vehicle accessories.

You can download a operating manual and owner’s guide from ARB’s website to learn more, and check out this video that ARB made to see the LINX in action.
