Re: E-Link use with iPad

Thanks, but it doesn't work on my iphone either, and conservatively speaking, I've probably entered the password (correctly) a dozen times on each device. Guess I'll have to wait for the dealer to get an answer from Evinrude for me. If there is a solution, I'll post it for the benefit of others.

Re: E-Link use with iPad

If you can get access to an Android device try that, if it doesn't work you likely have a defective E-Link.

Re: E-Link use with iPad

Apparently none of the new E-links are working with any device. BRP are apparently working on it.

Re: E-Link use with iPad

The password located on the rear of my E-Link hub reads "EvinrudeELink". Today I discovered a recent post on another site that stated the E-Link password had been changed to "EvinrudeiLINK" (presumably after my units' manufacture). Entered the new password, and bingo, connected instantly.

 

I wonder whether the "issue" that BRP is feverishly working on involves learning how to communicate beyond corporate walls, as even my dealer hadn't been advised of the problem or solution. 

 

Thanks to all on this site who tried to help.

If you have version PGF479_A3, the password should be EvinrudeiLINK. Version PGF479_A1 is the old password, EvinrudeELink. They are addressing current inventory and will have new labels to reflect this change.

 

Thanks for bringing it to our attention
