MobiLinQ

MobiLinQ is a Linux based, central communications platform specifically designed for in-vehicle installation. MobiLinQ is all about choice!

Choosing the best peripherals to meet your specific business requirements. Whether Discreet or Smart Taximeters, Roof Lights, Driver Panic Button, Rear Seat Point of Sale, Passenger Information Monitors, Printers, Cameras, Accelerometers, Seat Sensors, Vehicle Data Bus, or 3G/4G USB modems, MobiLinQ offers it all, while connecting wirelessly to an Android Smartphone or Tablet.

An integrated WiFi router within MobiLinQ turns your vehicle into a mobile hotspot, allowing for wireless connectivity between the driver’s Smartphone or Tablet and offering the driver freedom to take the mobile device with them (up to 100 meters).

Installation of MobiLinQ is straight forward. The small enclosure can be mounted discreetly under the dash, seat, or in the trunk of the vehicle, out of the way of the driver but easily accessible to the vehicle technician. MobiLinQ has the ability to provide regulated power to connected peripherals, simplifying the installation process and providing greater control and protection over your equipment.

Even without a connected Smartphone or 3G Tablet, the GPS equipped MobiLinQ can connect with a 3G/4G USB modem, providing real time Vehicle Tracking, Status Monitoring, Point of Sale processing (additional POS equipment required), and even driver distress annunciation. MobiLinQ also offers a CAN Bus interface for on-board vehicle diagnostics via the OBD-II port.
MobiLinQ bridges the gap between the latest Android Smartphones or Tablets and conventional RS-232, USB, and Discreet technologies while delivering a host of new capabilities for mobile applications.
