Flashlink | Fortin Flashlink | What is Flashlink? | User Guide

  • updated 3 yrs ago

Flashlink is the name of the software and the tool, made by Fortin, and required for programming (flashing)  most Fortin interface and remote start systems/modules.


The FLASHLINK V2 device is a round red puck like device that connects to your Windows PC (not compatible with Mac) via USB and allows you to utilize the Flashlink software to program (flash) your interface or remote start module. Consider it a bridge between the hardware and software of your Fortin product.

As of late 2018, there is also a mobile version available, called the FLASHLINK Mobile (it is more expensive that the FLASHLINK V2).
