WiThrottle for iOS

By Zemkies $9.99

Developer's Description

Use your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as a throttle for model railroad control!**PLEASE NOTE** This App is not a stand-alone product! Other hardware and software are required.Link to the popular JMRI software through a local Wi-Fi network to access throttle, address, and function controls wirelessly.Digital Command Control (DCC) is now the most common control method for earnest model railroaders, allowing multiple trains to be controlled simultaneously anywhere on the track. JMRI is an interface program that works with most brands of DCC and is very popular because it simplifies DCC programming, signaling, control, and many other aspects of running a permanent layout. It is also free and multi-platform. Instead of direct control through the DCC system, WiThrottle links with JMRI. This provides a universal interface to many possible combinations of technology and model railroads. As DCC evolves, JMRI is updated as needed to match current technology.Requirements:- JMRI 2.8 or higher, JMRI 4.0 recommended- DCC system interfaced to a computer and a model railroad- Local Wi-Fi networkIf you operate at either a club or private home that uses JMRI for operations and has Wi-Fi, access to the local network (host may need to share their password) is all you need. Multiple iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad mobile devices may use their own WiThrottle simultaneously during an operating session. If you would like to sample WiThrottle, we offer a Lite version at no charge. This allows you to confirm compatibility before buying the full App.Please visit our website for additional information. Our goal is to enhance your model railroading experience by providing convenient, wireless control of your existing system. WiThrottle is the final piece of the puzzle.
