The Linkswell GEN6 T-Style multimedia center replaces the factory display screen and climate control center in Ford F-series pickups, enhancing the dash with a 12.1-inch, multi-touch panel encased in a factory-match bezel. The climate controls are recreated on-screen, and under the screen between the volume and tuning knobs, allowing the driver to access all related features.
The Android 11-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 optional SIM card, 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.
Adding a SIM card is now an option! The GEN6 allows you to insert a SIM card to provide the radio with its own data source so you can access the Internet through a browser that displays full web pages with multiple tabs and search capability. You can also use your subscription-based streaming services — Pandora® Internet Radio, Spotify® and more — by downloading the Android-compatible apps onto the unit’s 64GB of internal storage.
With the SPDIF (optical) output, the GEN6 can function as a state-of-the-art head unit, with the addition of aftermarket amplifiers that accept this ultra-clean signal.
The included WIRELESS Car Play (Apple) & Android Auto (Android) capability allows you to enjoy a seamless experience using the power of your smartphone for additional features of each system, while the optional DVR camera functions as a “dash cam” and enables recording and playback of all of your trips (SD card required for recording – not supplied)
For safety, the Linkswell GEN6 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.
