    Does anyone have any Info on a WINDOWS 10 BASED wifi throttle that will work with JMRI. I Have used my phone to control trains with JMRI, but its old and the battery does not last. would like to use my windows 10 based tablet to control trains. internet search comes up with nothing only phone based throttles.

    I don’t recall that anyone ever wrote a throttle program for win 10 tablets (Or even win 8 or win 10 phones). Edit, I was apparently wrong, see below.


    Keep in mind Microsoft tablets also came in two flavors. Is yours the win 10 mobile software (like win 10 Phone) and mobile chipset, or win 10 desktop (like a computer) with laptop hardware?

    I don’t know which version this is for, but is what I found.

    Says for Xbox One, Windows 10 version 10240.0 or higher

    But I was able to google that up for you in about 30 seconds.
    Keywords: windows 10 WiThrottle or windows 10 engine driver. Forget which worked.

    Second EDIt: found website I think will help you also

    unfortunately no did not work on my tablet. i have a cheap Best Buys Insignia tablet that i suspect is the problem. software worked fine on my desktop computer. I reverted back to using Engine Driver with my amdroid phone.

    On a Windows 10 device It works as webpages in JMRI.

    Open your browser and type the IP address of your WiThrottle and add at the end of the IP address :)12080) This will pick up the JMRI Panels, and Roster anf also the Turnouts and routes.

    checkout a program called Digitrains Pro .... it works on win 10 as well as android and should do what you want.
