The following are the settings that I use, and would notionally recommend, for the Engine Driver Android App for use on the four club layouts.

The ones in bold I would stongly recommend.


- Throttle Name - <Your name>
- Screen Orientation - "Portrait".   If you are using a phone rather than a tablet.
- Show Emergency Stop Button? – Ticked
- Show Loayout power Button - Unticked
- JMRI Clock Display - Unticked for club use.

Throttle Preferences

- Speed Units - Personal choice. Given that most of my DCC chips are 28 steps, I use 28

- Maximum Throttle Change - Unsure. I am using the default of 25.
- Increase Slider Height? - Ticked
