Hornby Bluetooth system control app hits Android today

It has been available for iOS users for a while and now you lovely Android people get get “on-track” with it. The HM7000 doesn’t have the trippiest off the tongue name wise certainly but for what it delivers to scaled down track and train fans this is a minor siding. From precision control, shunting to within millimetres and a sliding wheel function on steam engines to speed control, creeping speed for coupling up to maximum throttle speeds and load compensation selection. Adding further to the shrunken realism of your layout there are over 30 free sounds available for diesel, electric, and steam locomotives. Three sound can also be played simultaneously – horns, whistles, brakes or coal shovelling, wheel slip, injectors or any combination of three and you’re able to set the volume level for each sound individually or all at the same time, oh, and you can control on-baord lighting should you have any.
