New Version Of MTH Smart Phone App Released

Allows Apps To Run DCS Explorer

November 21, 2017 - M.T.H. Electric Trains has released a new version of its smartphone and tablet App for controlling a DCS layout wirelessly to the Apple App Store and Google Play stores.

The revised App allows users to control the DCS Explorer, the all-new DCS component found in M.T.H. RailKing Ready-to-Run starter sets. Unlike the DCS WIU WiFi Interface Unit, the DCS Explorer does not provide users with all DCS functions. The new app flags those functions not accessible on the DCS Explorer so that users will know why the function isn't operating when triggered by the App.

When the App is updated (via Google Play or the Apple App Store), the user will be asked to select the hardware they intend to control with the App: DCS Explorer or DCS WIU. Once selected, the App continues to behave as normal, albeit with a limited feature set when controlling the DCS Explorer. If the user wishes to control the other hardware type, they will have to select that hardware type in the App Settings section of the App. Failure to do so will result in an error message from the App declaring that no hardware had been found.

The update is available for all levels of the App, including the Standard and Premium versions allowing those users to control the DCS Explorer or a DCS WIU. However, even when controlled by a Standard or Premium version of the App, Standard and Premium users will not be able to access all features of DCS when their smart device is connected to a DCS Explorer. This is because the DCS Explorer has a limited feature set, unlike the DCS WIU which has access to most (Standard App) or all DCS features (Premium App) if controlled by a Standard or Premium App.

The new version of the app still provides access to the M.T.H. website allowing visitors to quickly find the latest news, search for products, watch product videos and much, much more.
