The Latest Vehicle Interface System

USB-Link™ 2, the next generation vehicle interface from NEXIQ Technologies®, has arrived. Dependable and rugged, the new USB-Link™ 2 is five times faster than its predecessor. It has sixteen times more random access memory than the old USB-Link, and it supports heavier bus loads on simultaneous channels. USB-Link™ 2 is available in both a Bluetooth edition and a Wi-Fi edition.

Bluetooth Edition

The Bluetooth edition supports wireless communication via an enhanced data rate (500K b/s J1939). For even more reliability, we’ve upgraded the USB connector to a more robust, automotive grade connector with a latching mechanism. The USB-Link 2 is compatible with a wide range of OEM software applications.

Note: For best results with the Bluetooth edition, Class 1 (100 m range) Bluetooth® USB adapters are recommended. Class 1 adapters are recommended because of their greater operating range.

Wi-Fi Edition

The Wi-Fi edition supports dual band (2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz) 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, which is designed to avoid interference and maximize throughput. For even more reliability, we’ve upgraded the USB connector to a more robust, automotive grad connector with a latching mechanism. Both editions of USB-Link™ 2 come with a latching USB Cable, and a 6- and 9-pin Deutsch Adapter. Each is compatible with a wide range or OEM software applications.


Each USB-Link™ 2 edition is supported by a range of accessories.
