Engine Driver Throttle

About using the Engine Driver throttle with the DCC++ base station.

This page shows it being used and goes through the process of installing Engine Driver on your phone.

This assumes that you have assembled your base station with WiFi capability. If you have not, this link takes you to the tutorial on how to set it up and get the kit necessary to set it up.  DCC WiFi Control

Once you have your base station set up, you can use Engine Driver on your phone.  Consider using an older phone that you have laying around.  That will give you a dedicated control unit that will not be interrupted by phone calls.

If you use it on your regular phone, you will have to take an additional step.

If you normally have your phone automatically connect to your home router then you need to turn off the automatic connection ( very inconvenient I know) otherwise it will arbitrarily disconnect the AP and connect to your home router because it thinks it’s a better connection.

Install it on  your phone.

To operate it with the DCC++ software installed using our tutorials, you will need these defaults
