The Navigator DCC system is a digital command station which has been developed for model railroaders who operate a small or a midsize layout and who do not want to abandon contemporary control techniques. Thanks to its bi-directional infrared technique, the Navigator allows wireless control of your locos!
The Navigator is still available as extended version, the DCC version is sold out.
The Navigator DCC controls up to 40 locomotives; locos speaking DCC are appropriate. Depending on the decoders´ abilities, the Navigator DCC switches up to 21 functions per locomotive and is able to handle up to 9999 addresses. Of course every loco can be named and assigned individually with an adequate symbol.
You can also drive multiple consists with the Navigator DCC; up to 6 locomotives can be moved at the same time. During consist operation access to the functions of each loco is granted - at any time; e.g. you are able to activate the horn of the leading loco.
Switch magnetic accessories
As is expected of a modern digital command station, the Navigator DCC also switches your magnetic accessories and turnouts; you may construct up to 100 magnetic accessories on your layout and switch them. The Navigator DCC handles DCC decoders only.
Sometimes you cannot avoid changing the settings of your decoders during digital analog operation. The Navigator DCC supports you with the programming of the decoders via its clearly structured operation interface. All CVs of DCC decoders can be read and changed on the programming track.
This Navigator DCC version is not equipped with a computer interface and has only been available in the USA.
