Banks iQ

New!  Banks iQ™ Dashboard PC upgrade your Tuner with Switch

The all-new Banks iQ represents the reinvention of the art and science of vehicle-user-interface. We’ve given Banks iQ the power of a true PC and opened up an entirely new world. It’s not just information, it’s total control. Use the 5” color touchscreen Banks iQ to adjust power levels, control downhill cruising speed, adjust braking intensity, custom-tune numerous performance parameters, measure vehicle performance, read your altitude and GPS corrected speed and so much more, all on the fly! Listen to music, watch videos, play games and review Microsoft® Office documents. Banks iQ opens a window into the vital inner workings of your vehicle’s ECU, letting you see what’s beyond your dashboard gauges. Set audible alarms, read and clear trouble/diagnostic codes, log data, and measure horsepower and acceleration... while even customizing your own layout, content and colors!

The best news? Banks iQ is fully expandable and upgradable. You'll always be able to run the latest software and download a host of new programs as they become available, too!

Banks iQ is an easy upgrade for customers who already own a Banks’ PowerPDA.
