[21st June 2023] Hornby’s recently-introduced Bluetooth controlled DCC system, HM7000, is now available on Android mobile devices and phones.
When launched earlier this year, the Hornby HM7000 system was available for iOS (Apple) users only, the system can now be used by Apple and Android users.
Locomotives with the appropriate decoders can be controlled from the app using Bluetooth and it also allows users to install a wide range of sound profiles onto decoders for locomotive sound effects and to view and change the settings on a decoder.
The apps are free-to-download for both IOS and Android.
Andy is a lifelong modeler, writer, and founder of modelrailwayengineer.com. He has been building model railways, dioramas, and miniatures for over 20 years. His passion for model making and railways began when he was a child, building his first layout at the age of seven.
Andy’s particular passion is making scenery and structures in 4mm scale, which he sells commercially. He is particularly interested in modelling the railways of South West England during the late Victorian/early Edwardian era, although he also enjoys making sci-fi and fantasy figures and dioramas. His website has won several awards, and he is a member of MERG (Model Railway Electronics Group) and the 009 Society.
When not making models, Andy lives in Surrey with his wife and teenage son. Other interests include history, science fiction, photography, and programming. Read more about Andy.
