Pro Edition Wireless Updating

Pro Edition Digtial Dash with the external NexLink Pro ECU Interface

Updating your NexGenEFI Pro Edition Digital Display

You can watch the video below but its best to read the instructions since it contains the login/password information that you will need for the connection/update process.


The Pro Edition series has the capability of being updated directly by the end user via wireless connectivity.  This will NOT UPDATE the LAYOUTS, only the firmware for the custom PCB in the NexLink Pro ECU Interface.  Please read the Pro Edition Layout Updating page for instructions on layout updating.

DO NOT EVER connect a USB C cable to the NexLink Pro ECU interface unless EXPLICITLY INSTRUCTED by NexGenEFI. Damage can occur by doing so and WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY!


Enabling Wireless Updates

Accessing the Configuration Screen is done on any layout  by touching in the area around the GREEN LOCATING DOT (outlined in yellow in the example below).  There is a touch sensitive area in that location.   EACH LAYOUT will have a GREEN LOCATING DOT notifying you where to press in order to access the Configuration Screen.  See example below which is the “Futuristic” layout.

After clicking in the general area indicated above, you will see the Configuration Screen below. 

The WiFi Update option is under the General settings.  Press the General button.

Enable the WiFi updates by touching the RED OFF button.  After enabling the button will display a GREEN ON button indicating the Pro Edition Digital Display is ready for direct wireless connectivity.

Once you see the GREEN ON button, DO NOT PRESS ANY OTHER BUTTON ON THE DISPLAY.  DO NOT PRESS CANCEL OR SAVE.  If you do, no big deal, the Pro Edition dash will restart and you will need to re-enable the WebServer.

Once you see the GREEN ON button, the Pro Edition Digital Display has enabled itself as a wireless hotspot.  You will be able to connect to it wirelessly.

The hotspot name is: EFIDash
Password is: EFIDashpass
