Hi Tom,

I also asked ESU for a developer device.

Hi,

today I received the Mobile Control II and...
andRoc runs on it. :)

The device is a bit clumsy, edgy and needs a good WiFi hotspot.

Which functions do you assign to the four knobs? Or is the user supposed to do the assignment himself?

I do not know yet except for the 'Stop' button. ;)
But I first must integrate the ESU-SDK in andRoc...

Oh Rob! That's very fine!
:rr_for_ever:

May i ask, what you have intended to do with the three knobs which are not used by andRoc by now?
Is there any possibility to assign user-specific functions by context?
f.i. F-Functions of the current-loco or decoupler on the layout, start/stop automode ...

Hi Ralph,

the ESU App does not use them either.
The two buttons on the left are volume +/-.
The button bottom right is not used.

All buttons are reported in andRoc.

User defined functionality is not a good idea.

Oh! That is a possibility to do it better! :D :coding:

Volume is imho senseless on a mobile control in the mode of train driving.
It is used for the normal android operation for sure.
anRoc should it imho handle differently.
And a knob without function is purely senseless.

So: What would anyone propose here for the three free knobs?
One (upper right=Pause) is emergency break, Rob? Or power off/on?

My proposal:
- 1 knob switches between automode on/off
- 1 knob is for a loco defined F-function specific for this loco

Either
-1 knob is defined a specific decoder-adress for the layout (f.i. decoupler)
or
-1 knob is for another loco defined F-function specific for this loco

Hi,

The 2 buttons for volume is for the headset. There is no speaker.

Ok, then the question: Who want's to listen to audio when driving on the layout?
