Hornby launches HM7000 App

Hornby has launched its revolutionary new HM7000 Bluetooth® digital app control system. Available for use with iPhone Operating System (iOS) devices initially, an Android version will be available soon.


The free to download app has been designed to bring Bluetooth® operation of layout control and sound functionality to the palm of the hand and has been designed to ensure locomotives fitted with the company’s new Bluetooth® and DCC motor control or Triplex Sound (TXS) decoders run without connectivity issues.

Hornby’s new HM DCC app also allows you to transfer free sound profiles directly onto the company’s new TXS digital sound decoders, with a selection of custom steam and diesel motive power profiles available. The TXS decoders are supplied with a generic sound profile which can be overwritten by using the new free-to-download app. While the decoders also work on DCC systems, the sound profiles can only be updated through the app.

The new HM DCC app will also operate across scales and is compatible with other manufacturer’s locomotives. See the May 2023 issue of Hornby Magazine (HM191) - on sale from April 6 2023 - for a first look at Hornby’s new HM7000 Bluetooth® digital control system app and TXS decoders.
