Reply to "MTH R&D status"

@mth r&d. you are so spot on. due to the way both systems send out their respective signals. there is no hope for legacy to control dcs. on the other hand dcs controlling lionel tmcc and now legacy. that is truly almost a one remote fits all trains system. with a newly redesigned wifi remote comming down the pipe line. plus the new legacy control features in the works. this is truley a great time to be a dcs user.

btw if you havent already discussed it. please include a whistle slider on the new wifi remote if possible. that alone is the best feature of the cab2 remote. plus I have seen dcs quillable whistles that smoke you out of the room. this would make your product perform as well if not better than lionels. it works great with the app I realize,but for the dcs remote as you know its clunky at best.

we are truly living in the best time in the oguage hobby. thanks for all you do.

Good idea to add the slider.  I agree, when driving a nail, use a hammer.  The quillable whistle benefits from the slider.  It's the right way to do it.  We were limited with the remote as you know but, when we reboot, a slider is certainly doable.  I can think of a few other features that may benefit from it as well.  Also, we nearly added the Legacy brake feature.  Their implementation is arcane and even their head tech guy at the time we were writing code struggled to help us understand how to implement it.  We may give it another go as I think this is a pretty cool feature and I know it's important to the Legacy operators.

Thanks for the thanks.  It means a lot.
