Montreal, QC – Automotive Data Solutions Inc. (ADS), makers of the iDatalink Maestro audio interface products, was granted US patent #9,619,144 on April 11, 2017 protecting the user interface method of programming used to flash the Maestro products.

Known as ‘Weblink’ to the ADS installer community, Maestro’s Web-programming interface is particularly appreciated for its intuitive visual configuration of steering wheel button assignments, choosing the factory systems to retain and even getting a vehicle specific installation guide.
