My LCS WiFi module was delivered a couple days ago and after setting it up and using the iCab app for about 15 minutes, I was pretty disappointed. I have a mix of TMCC, ERR, LC+2.0, and Legacy locomotives and lash-ups and I’d like to be able to hand an iPhone to guests so they could control any of the locos/trains. This was one of my main motivating factors for purchasing the LCS WiFi module.
I think this is well known, but the iCab app doesn’t seem to have all of the features available on CAB-2 and the interface could use some love.
I also noticed at least one pretty serious (IMO) bug that made me want to stop using the app completely - when switching between engines/trains, the speed graph would show zero even though the engine/train was still moving. This is confusing and makes it difficult to run multiple trains at the same time and adjust speeds, temporarily slow down/speed up, etc.
I’ve been searching around for alternative apps and the Highrail app looks nice but it doesn’t appear to support trains or switches.
Is this a pipe dream or is there actually a well designed app out there without major bugs that can do everything (or close to it) that the CAB-2 can do?
