Vipec/link Dislay Unit

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen anything here about the Link Display unit. I have just bought one and will give a little report when I have had a chance to have a play with it but I just want to give a heads up for anyone considering buying one that they can be had at a good price here:

Link do not approve of their dealers discounting but I think this is a dealer unloading some excess stock. I paid NZ$720 for mine (they are usually over $1000) and there are 2 or three more for sale. They will fit Link or Vipec ecus.

It would turn on and off automatically. The tablet wouldnt.

It would probably have better/easier mounting options.

It's not going to stuff up ;)

Thats all I can think of

Pretty good price.

What would be the benefit of using that over a Windows Tablet to do the same job?

Not sure - I am not particularly computer literate and I don't have a lap top or a tablet and Link Display just plugs in and away you go. It has mounting facility on the back and I plan to use it to reduce the number of gauges I have ( as well as for logging afrs and injector flows etc). Will put up a few pics when I have time.

You probably find that the supplier is thinning down his stock now that Link/ViPec are offering the Race Technology Dash 2 as a direct plug in for their ECU's, I get the feeling they will stop making the Display Link at some stage.

Possibly but that dash will probably be at least $500 more!

Link are dropping that display unit as it didnt do very well at all.

They have now teamed up with an Australian dash company. Similar dash to a racepak etc.

Race Technology Dash 2 is a UK made item. Nothing wrong with the Link unit apart from the price so I am happy with my discounted one. The Race Technology Dash is more suited for track cars and is already used with the Link in the NZ Supertourers.

since Link is supposed to be compatible with the other brands of display...maybe u can consider others? like motec's? :D

btw...anyone knows if motec's SLM is compatible with the Link G4+ or Vipec?

It looks like the new Link+ & Vipec 'i' series have OBD2 capabilities.

I'm not 100% if this trickles down to the plugin units, but reading the Link page it looks that way.

Opens up the possibilities of using common place OBD2 data display units :)

I spoke to the Motec guys at WTAC in Sydney not long ago, they said it was.

I'm running a Racepak IQ3 with my ViPec.......but with the amount of shagging around I had to do to make it work, I would recommend just getting a Race Tech Dash 2 as it is just plug and play.

not just simple CAN bus connection?

for the SLM... motec controls it via software with table... does the vipec software have this?

Yes the LEDs on my Display Link can be programmed for a shift light so the Link/Vipec software does have that capability.

What about the possibility of using a windows tablet with the Viper software installed via usb connection?

Also does anyone know if the usb output from the vipec ecu would charge a tablet?
