If you follow our Hot News & New Stuff forum, you’re already hip to the latest news on Traxxas Link: the formerly “Apple only” app is now available for Android devices. Thanks to Bluetooth capability, there’s no need for a physical “Docking Base” and connector to attach a device to the transmitter–it’s totally wireless. That means Traxxas doesn’t have to worry about plug compatibility issues, so it’s easy to go Android.
The free Traxxas Link app gives the Bluetooth-enabled TQi transmitter pro-level functionality by turning your phone or tablet into a touch-screen interface and display for the transmitter. Tuning adjustments, model memory management, and telemetry capability are all easily accessed, complete with automotive-style “dashboard” for telemetry data. Follow the hyperlinks for more info.
Bluetooth connection is easy and instant.
From this screen, you can jump to tuning adjustments (“Drive Effects”), model memory (“Select Model”), telemetry display (“Dashboard”) and other functions.
Here’s the Dashboard view for telemetry data.
If you prefer a larger numeric display to the dashboard’s analog gauges, you can select this view.
