QUOTE The Lenz (xPressNet) group is always looking to add the latest bells and whistles hence Lisa's comments on rewrites of the system. To me as long as you can update the firmware this is a non issue and can actually be seen as an advantage.
Another beginners question.

The question is can all xPressNet items be updated as new firmware becomes available?
Are updates distributed via the web, are they free & how are they input into the equipment?
Are updates manufacturer specific or could I, for example use a Lenz update in a Hornby system. I doubt it. If not then the commitment of the manufacturer to providing updates becomes important and the best gauge is past record. What is the past record like for Lenz? Hornby obviously haven't got a past record but I would be suspicious of a non specialist manufacturer really being into things like distributing firmware updates. If no upgrades were forthcoming it would appear that a purchase is likely to be a dead end before very long.

Taking it back to your dealer is OK if you have a local dealer to take it back to. I am not very keen on the idea of mailing my system around the country but I don't have local dealers.

The idea of a computer link & either a download or a CD is much preferable.

Am I right in thinlking Digitrax use the CD distribution method?
