Default Piko DCC System

I purchased a complete Piko system including remote switch control a few months ago. The original setup works well. The problems started when I tried adding another Navigator (Piko for handheld remote). 1) It's supposed to automatically link up with a change in the ID but didn't. 2) They state the Central Station can operate up to eight Navigators but what they don't say is the wireless receiver (35018) can only handle four. There is only one place to connect only one wireless receiver. Right now I am waiting for Piko in California to get back with me on why I cannot connect two or more Navigators to my system. Piko sent me a third Navigator to try but that failed also. In speaking with Piko I understand there are three other people who have this same problem.

Note, I choose the Zimo 20amp system at 24 volts to the track (POwer input is 30 volt).
It is expensive, but has many bells and whistles other systems are missing.



2 outputs..8 amp and 12 amp which can be programmed for voltage and current limits or tied together for 20 amps.
Also has hard wired internet, 3 handheld wired jacks, range of over 300 feet wireless, colored touch screen handhelds, and many future options to come.

Well, bringing a 5 year old thread back to life, I used the NCE system for years, and liked the service and menus and ease of use. I still like it a lot, but my Zimo system improves on everything, except readibility in full sun as the NCE was a mono LCD system and color LCDs cannot be seen as easliy in bright sun.


But as Dan says, and the title of this thread is the "best" across the board, I pick the Zimo, in fact I have 2 of them.

Default Jmri

tried to download JMRI into my Mac and the computer said it could not guarantee security of this app. Has anyone else had this problems?

No, but could be that the JMRI people refuse to pay the Apple "toll" for approved software.... if you have issues, you should go to the JMRI forum, very few people here running it, and fewer on a mac...
