The Linkswell GEN5 T-Style multimedia center replaces the factory display screen and climate control center in select Ford F-Series pickups, enhancing the dash with a 13-inch, multi-touch panel encased in a factory-match bezel. The climate controls are now embedded into the bezel, allowing the driver to access all related features, as well as physical volume and tuning knobs.
The Android™ 9 powered multimedia center is optimized to display relevant information with minimal distraction. Google Maps is pre-installed, and your choice of Android navigation apps (such as Waze) can be installed to give you live updates while driving (internet connection required – via dedicated or phone hotspot). In addition to using the T-Style’s built-in AM/FM tuner, drivers can utilize the factory USB port to connect smartphones, and an additional USB connector for flash media. Bluetooth® connectivity enables hands-free phone calls and wireless music streaming, as well as master control of outboard devices such as Bluetooth lighting, relays or amplifier app controls!
The GEN 5 now allows iPhone users to activate and use Car Play (Apple) and Android Auto WIRELESSLY to enjoy a seamless experience using the power of your smartphone for additional features of each system.
By connecting the Linkswell GEN5 T-Style to a mobile or smartphone Wi-Fi hotspot, users can access the Internet through a browser that displays full web pages with multiple tabs and search capability. They can also use their subscription-based streaming services — Pandora® Internet Radio, SiriusXM® Satellite radio, Spotify® and more — by downloading the Android-compatible apps onto the unit’s 64GB of internal storage or add an outboard Sirius/XM tuner to add satellite radio (SXM connector provided – future firmware update required to activate).
For safety, the Linkswell GEN5 T-Style has three dedicated camera inputs for optional front, rear and passenger-side camera views. The reverse camera switches when the vehicle shifts into reverse gear, the right side camera when the right turn signal is applied, and the front camera is manually operated.
