I struggle with technology, but recognize its value.
For instance, I think LC+ is a terrific technological breakthrough in the world of O Gauge trains because it has fun and interesting features, does not overwhelm me, is user friendly, and is affordable.
I've been running my 3 LC+ locomotives with their dedicated remote units, which I love. So does my 7 year old granddaughter. I have the Universal Remote and I downloaded the LC+ App on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, but I have not used them yet.
This morning I read the instructions and did a Forum search on LC+ to start educating myself about the Universal Remote and the App. I need to learn how to use them because I am purchasing an LC+2.0 switcher in the new Lionel catalogue, and the dedicated remotes do not come with the new LC+2.0 engines.
All of us who have recently ordered LC+2.0 locomotives need to educate ourselves about them. If you have any questions or concerns about them, you can raise them on this thread, where we can pool our knowledge. We have plenty of time to do this because I understand that Lionel projects delivery of the LC+2.0 engines in the new catalogue in the 2nd quarter of 2020.
I will start us off with the following:
According to prior posts re LC+ engines, the LC+ App gets updated periodically. I have the LionChief App Version 2.3.0 that I downloaded from Google Play Store about 1 year ago. Is that the latest version of this App?
