Baron Mobile Link Now Supports Up To Four Simultaneous XM WX Connections

July 16, 2012, Huntsville, AL… Baron Services, Inc., a leading weather technology company, announced today that its popular Mobile Link device will now provide up to four mobile devices with the ability to simultaneously connect to and receive XM WX graphical weather data. This upgrade is the main feature in the free Firmware 2.2 update, which is available immediately for current subscribers.

The Mobile Link allows XM WX Satellite Weather subscribers to display onboard weather data by running compatible apps on their mobile devices, including the iPhone® and iPad®. The new firmware update will provide up to four connections for pilots, co-pilots, captains, crew, owners and passengers to view XM WX weather data with different apps on different devices at the same time, and not interfere with each other.

Bob Baron, President and CEO of Baron Services stated, “Our customers have asked for a way to run multiple devices from one Mobile Link unit. We believe that we have exceeded their expectations with the current capacity for four connections. As a pilot, I know what an advantage it will be for our customers to be able to view XM WX Satellite Weather data products on more than one app at a time.”

Radio Status Page
As part of the 2.2 update, the graphical features on the radio status page have been enhanced. While overall functionality of this page remains the same, there is now a radio status page icon that can be added to the Home Screen so that users will have easier access to signal information. Users have the option of naming this icon before adding it to the home screen.

Admin Panel
The admin panel has also received a fresh new look. User names and passwords will remain the same. With the new admin panel, users can access virtually all the device features simply by logging in. Firmware updates, making changes to the radio connection, renaming the SSID, and Mobile Link system information can all be accessed directly from the redesigned panel.

The Mobile Link Firmware 2.2 update will be available immediately for existing customers to download at www.baronservices.com/mobilelinkupdate. Setup instructions and a tutorial video will be provided on the page to assist customers through the upgrade process. All new Mobile Link units will ship with the latest firmware updates in place.  The Mobile Link device will be on display in XM WX Booth C3037 – C3039 at 2012 AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
