Must be just a matter of time as MRC have stopped supplying the Prodigy Advance.
As far as I can see, the squared is just an updated version with 28 functions.
A radio wireless option is available for the N. American market too.

Prodigy Advance Squared

ultimate DCC experience

If you're a
multi-user, multi-cab club with a complex layout and you're ready to take
advantage of everything the ultimate DCC experience can offer, Prodigy
Advance Squared is the system for you. It is also the first DCC system so
brilliantly designed that it eliminates the complexities of operation
without sacrificing sophisticated technology and comprehensive features.

Advance Squared features

    Universal consisting

    speed steps for precise speed control

    buy to get started]

a "pro" in minutes

The New Prodigy Advance Squared - What is new since the Prodigy Advance?
What set's the Prodigy Advance Squared apart from the Prodigy Advance and
Prodigy Express is the fact that the new Squared comes complete with the
N.M.R.A.'s new protocols that use up to function 28, [F28], with no other
upgrades needed. The Squared also comes "Wire-less Ready"... What this means is
that as soon as the Wire-less add on is released, this unit is ready to accept
it... Just "Plug and Play"!!!

Athearn is a trademark of Horizon Hobby, Inc.

I must say that I find this device a very complete and feature rich. It is an upgrade to a good product that delivers even more requested capabilities to the user. The sound guys will be very pleased with this. I think that there is going to be plenty of wireless DCC in the future. MRC is looking ahead and not just sitting back and watching the world go by.

I wonder what Gaugemaster will do with all the Prodigy Advance units that is has here? According to MRC, the old Advances can be upgraded to the newer F28 function and wireless add-on.
