A free firmware update will be released April 10 for Baron Services’ Mobile Link device on April 10, officials said at Sun ’n Fun.
The Mobile Link allows XM WX Satellite Weather subscribers to display onboard weather data by running compatible apps on their mobile devices, including the iPhone and iPad. Firmware update 2.0 will add support for additional XM WX data products, the certified XMD-076 XM WX receiver from Heads-Up Technologies, and the latest WxWorx receiver’s embedded GPS (Models WR-10 and WR-10BT only).
WxWorx on Wings customers using the WxWorx WR-10 or WR-10BT data receivers have enjoyed the benefits of an integrated WAAS-enabled GPS device. With the 2.0 firmware, the Mobile Link can access this internal device to display the user’s GPS position, along with weather conditions in compatible apps.
The 2.0 update will be available for download at BaronServices.com/MobilelinkUpdate to existing customers April 10, and will begin shipping embedded with all new Mobile Link units at the same time.
Setup instructions and tutorial videos will be provided on the page to assist customers through the upgrade process.
