Connecting the Mobile Link unit to your receiver doesn’t change your account status, so no phone calls to customer service are required.

What are the weight and dimensions of the Mobile Link?
The Mobile Link device is 4.4” W x 6.4”L x 1.2” H. The unit weighs 0.4 lbs.
Is the Mobile Link FCC-certified?
Yes, the FCC ID code is TK4-WLM54GP.
What is the Mobile Link’s wireless signal range?
The maximum reception distance for the Mobile Link is 30 meters (98’).
How long is the USB cable for the WxWorx weather receiver?
It is 2 meters (6‘ 10”) long.
What kind of power connection does the Mobile Link accept?
The Mobile Link is power by DC power from the vehicle, through a cigarette lighter plug-in cable (included). A DC-AC converter is also provided for electrical conversion.
How is the WxWorx receiver powered when connected to the Mobile Link?
The WxWorx receiver is powered through the USB cable from the Mobile Link.
Can a Bluetooth WxWorx weather receiver provide data to the Mobile Link?
No, weather data is transferred to the Mobile Link through the USB cable which is a hardwired link between the two boxes. The Mobile Link is not Bluetooth-capable.
What is the Mobile Link’s voltage range?
The Mobile Link has a power range of 9-18 volts AC/DC. It is equipped with a fuse that protects the unit from any electrical surge that may occur during normal operations.
Will the Mobile Link work with a 28-volt system, or do you have to install an inline resister to reduce the electrical power down to accommodate the unit?
The Mobile Link has a power range of 9-18 volts AC/DC. If you’d like to power the device with 28 volts, you will need to purchase a power converter.
Can the Mobile Link be hardwired into an aircraft’s electrical system? If so, how?
Yes it can, as long as there is an inline fuse (1.5 amp/250 watts) wired into the power cable. The power can be wired off a 2-amp circuit breaker, but if a permanent power installation is performed, an STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) and FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) form 337 must be submitted to the nearest FSDO (Flight Standardization District Office). This is not recommended for Part 135 operations.
If I already have a XM WX Satellite Weather subscription, can I use it on my mounted unit and mobile device at the same time?
No, only one display unit per subscription can be supported.
How do I know that my Mobile Link and WxWorx receiver are communicating?
Open the web browser on your mobile device and go to the status page (http://10.1.11.1/radio.html). This webpage has a lot of useful information (signal quality, radio ID, etc.). To verify the connection, look at the Radio ID section of the Status Page. If there is no Radio ID, then the Mobile Link and receiver are not communicating.
Is the satellite weather subscription through WxWorx, or SiriusXM?
XM WX Satellite Weather accounts and subscriptions are with SiriusXM. If customers already have a WxWorx weather receiver, there is no XM WX activation required. However, if you purchase a new receiver, you will need to call SiriusXM Customer Service at 1-800-985-9200 with the new Radio ID so your subscription can be transferred to the new unit.
