NCE are about to release firmware upgrades for the PowerCab and PowerPro systems at the end of this month.

If anyone has either system they should ensure that the registration card has been returned to NCE as they are dealing with upgrades direct with customers.

There will be a small charge for the upgrades - two options are upgrade with notes ($8) or upgrade with revised manual ($16).

More information about the upgrade is on our site at http://www.bromsgrovemodels.co.uk/ncedccinfo.htm

Do remember that, if you have purchased your system since 1 Jan 2007 the upgrade is FREE - just send a copy of the sales receipt and the registration card to NCE.

I have emailed NCE and complained about the fact that they do not accept credit cards, and also that they haven't allowed us to act on their behalf and accept credit card transactions in Europe for the upgrade. I haven't had a response yet........

Just out of interest, the following is a list of current software versions used by NCE, as of 30 March 2007.

>ProCab itself: V1.3 (No radio)
>Cab04e V3.1
>Cab04p V3.1
>Cab05 V3.1
>PowerCab: V1.28
>Radio in any cab: V1.4 (What you see fly by on procab display)
>Radio Base: V2.0
>Smart Booster: V1.28 (V1.28a)
>PowerPro: March 1, 2007
>Switch-it: Rev C
>Decoders: V3.5 for most or 3.6 (Decoder dependent)
>EB3: V1.0
>Switch-8: Rev A
>Snap-it: Rev C (no manual updated)
>Switch-Kat V1.0
>DCC analyzer V1.0 proto...V1.1 when hits production.
>AIU-01 V1.0 (No version given in manual or PCB)
>Booster No way to tell but typically PCB REV F or above.

I have just finished having a long conversation with NCE and they have agreed that we can handle the upgrade for the UK on their behalf. So, for anyone who hasn't returned their card yet to NCE you can now upgrade via us - this means you have a variety of methods to pay. I have added a new section to the NCE catalogue on our web store called NCE EPROM UPGRADE. Below I have copied the text at the header to this section:

You can order your EPROM upgrade for the NCE PowerPro and PowerCab systems here. This means you can pay by credit card and get your upgrade package despatched from within the UK and not have to pay US currency/money order charges. All orders will also be postage free - please select NCE EPROM UPGRADE as the postage type.

However, in order to get your upgrade you will still have to return the card you were sent by NCE - but return it to BROMSGROVE MODELS by post together with a printout of your order. If you do not wish to provide your credit card details over the Internet you should opt to pay by cheque but write your credit card details on the order form you send to us - this MUST include the card type, number, expiry date, last 3 digits on the back and, if paying by debit card such as Maestro, the start date and/or Issue Number.

Any orders sent via our secure web store that include payment details by credit card wil NOT be processed until we have received your NCE card as proof of purchase.

Please note: We will NOT accept telephone orders for the upgrade as we need printed proof of purchase.


I'm only sorry this has come so late (I have been battling on your behalf!!), but I think NCE have made a number of assumptions about how easily we can carry out foreign transactions here - hopefully this will give a number of you various payment options.
