Many NVNTRAK events include a JMRI WiThrottle server so that throttle apps on phones or tablets can be used to run trains.

To use the WiThrottle app:

  1. Ensure you have installed a WiThrottle app for your phone or tablet. Recommended apps are:
  2. Connect the Wifi Network advertised by the JMRI WiThrottle server.
    • Network name or SSID is NVNTRAK1, NVNTRAK2, or NVNTRAK3
    • Ask the Layout Coordinator for the network password
  3. Open the WiThrottle app. It should automatically connect to the JMRI WiThrottle server.
  4. Enter your locomotive address and run trains.
  5. Remember to dispatch or release your address when you are done.
