The MTH One Gauge Big Boys are now in-fact shipping and have some on the way.  My orders will be filled in the order they were originally placed but from what MTH has indicated the full delivery of engines should be here in the next 3 weeks.

Wanted to give you guys a heads-up that MTH has announced a new Wi-fi hardware device, the DCS - Explorer Track Interface Unit w/Wi-fi built-in.  

 

Separate topic has been started in the Battery forum:  

 

 

     - New WiFi Hardware: DCS - Explorer Track Interface Unit w/Wi-Fi built-in (50-1035) - $129.95 MSRP

                - Availability date: Unknown

                - Control your trains via Wi-Fi with your smart device (phone/tablet)

                - Will not require TIU or WIU and will be like a TIU and WIU combined with a more limited feature set.

                - Expect this will be the device that One Gauge battery operators have been waiting for.

April 17, 2017 - The latest version of the software used in the DCS system is now available for download. The download is FREE and includes new DCS Hardware Software (Version 6.00) that allows the TIU to control Lionel Legacy locomotive features when the TIU is paired with the DCS WIU WiFi Interface Unit. Both the DCS Remote and TIU Track Interface Unit should be updated with the new software however, once updated the Remote will NOT have Legacy function control. Legacy control is only available when DCS is controlled via the DCS Premium App.

The new DCS Software allows the user to control the TIU from the DCS iOS and Android Premium App available from the Google Play and Apple iTunes online stores. App control of DCS also requires the separately sold DCS Wi-Fi Interface Unit (WIU).

The new DCS Consumer Loader Program (Version 5.0) must be used to reprogram the TIU. Older versions of the DCS Loader Program are incapable of making some firmware changes to the TIU that allow the TIU to interface with the Wi-Fi Interface Unit.
