I came across this on the German ESU site.

Borrowed my kid's iTouch; found the free application in about 10 seconds on the appstore; downloaded it and had it running in about 30 seconds; had full control off the ECoS in another 15 seconds.

A photo of the iTouch, the ECoS 50200 and the SNCF 140.C.314 being controlled wirelessly:



Works brilliantly.

This is the current loco list:



A video linked from the German article. There are a few more on YouTube. Check them out:



For info, the price of the ECoS radio (50111) = 220 street (248 list)

The price of a 8GB iTouch (152 @ applestore UK) + the Touchcab App full version (5.99) = 157.99

More info at Touchcab.

TouchCab is already well known as a very cheap and effective wireless handset for the ECoS.

The price of an iPod Touch or iPhone = 0 (if you already have one) + the Touchcab App full version (5.99) = 5.99
The ECoSControl Radio has a job competing with that.

I've been avoiding iPhones. They tie you into the belief that everything mobile is Mac.

I'll play with my kid's one (if he'll let me use it) and see how it works before getting one. I actually have a 50111 paid for and on order, but I have no idea when that will come - neither does the shop I think...
