MRC WiFi Module 1530
Run your Prodigy DCC Railroad wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet. Unlike other systems, only MRC delivers plug'n play simplicity. There's no wiring needed. No need to navigate complex JMRI software. No need for a computer interface. No need for a Bluetooth connection. No need for a home network to run your layout. All you need is this MRC WiFi module, an MRC Prodigy DCC system (Express² or Advance²), and the WiThrottle or Engine Driver App for your smartphone or tablet.
Just plug the MRC module into any handheld jack on your Prodigy DCC system. It creates its own local Wi-Fi network to run your railroad and transforms your smartphone into a wireless throttle. The module acts as an interface between the two most popular smartphone apps: WiThrottle for iPhone, iPod, iPod Touch (available on the App Store) and Engine Driver for Android devices (available on Google Play).
You'll be able to operate your railroad and switches... and more. Depending on which Prodigy system you use, you can:
- Control train speed, direction, sound, lighting and functions F0-F28.
- Handle long and short addresses.
- Adjust throttle sensitivity for over the road running or yardwork.
- Create and store rosters with customized function labels.
- Advanced Features Include: operating accessories including lighted accessories, throwing track switches, creating universal consists... and more. You'll even be able to display two throttles on a single smartphone to control two locos at the same time.
Invite friends to run on your railroad... all they need to bring is their smartphones. Once the appropriate app is downloaded, each phone becomes a wireless throttle. Run up to eight smartphones on a single module.
The MRC WiFi module had a range of more than 90 feet. And unlike Bluetooth®, the MRC Wi-Fi system will work through tunnels, and isn't impeded by obstacles in the home.
The MRC WiFi module works with any brand loco or any brand decoder. If you are considering buying a DCC system, choose Prodigy and enjoy the wireless smartphone advantages of this MRC WiFi module.

Quick easy installation and set up. Works great with my iPhone and iPads. I hesitated purchasing because I thought there my be a delay in response from controller to locomotive. But there is nothing to worry about. The response is pretty much instant. I am very happy with product.
