Decoder Pro is available as a FREE download. This program makes it easy to set-up the decoder just the way you like. Much easier than playing around trying to set-up the decoder on the controller. This is all done on your computer. I have it on a laptop and is easy to understand. When you download it does not really show you much until such time as you hook it up to your layout
Decoder- Pro allows infinate control of Loco's including sound and running.
You may need to purchase a booster that helps the computer talk to the decoder in the loco. I use a Cirtronics brand. it can be purchased on line. About $60 .00 if I recall correctly. This is the one recommended by JMRI ( Decoder Pro )
Have a look at it, I think this nearly as good as sliced bread. And the price is right.
PS Even I can use it and I have troubles sending a email.
