I received my LZV200 yesterday and the biggest change I see is that we now have 64 functions! I can't see all those being used in my lifetime, so it's a bit of a nuisance. The reason why is that I use live volume control on F27 & 28 which are on function group 2 (3 out of three, with the first being 0). Now with two clicks I can alter the volume, but then have to go through the rest of the empty groups to get back to controlling a loco. A minor gripe I know and I'll get used to it, 64 functions!
Anyway, the battery is now easily replaceable, so there's a plus, but I doubt it'll go flat in my lifetime. :)

No way of remapping that I know of; it certainly isn't in the manual. Not the end of the world I know, just a little niggle. Some of my sound decoders use more than 16 and all of them use F keys 27 & 28 for live volume control. I can't fathom anyone needing 64 functions. I liken it to an answer without a question. I'm pleased with it though and like the old LZV100 it does what it says on the box. I have been asked for feedback by the Lenz distributor here in Australia, which he will bring up with Lenz at his next online meeting with them.

Sorry for the delay, we've been away for a couple of days. You'll be pleased to know that the manual that I downloaded and the one that came with it have instructions to alter the volts to track. I use 14v to give a nice amount of headroom for the 16v stay alives. I then change the top volts that the motor receives with CV57 in my Zimo decoders. Some of the modern motors are so efficient that I have one running on 5v and another on 7v and still enough speed.
