The DiMAX Navigator 2.4GHz is a state-of-the-art, ergonomically
shaped, cab controller for digital model railroads. It offers an
extensive array of features and functions and an easy to use, intuitive
control menu. The control menu can be displayed in German, English,
French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and a few other languages.

symmetrical shape and balanced weight distribution, the navigator is
equally comfortable for right-handed and left-handed users. Its large,
back-lit LCD with a white background is easy to read, even in extreme
The navigator's split screen display, its dial control
knob and a set of 3 programmable function keys allow users to control
two separate devices at the same time (e.g. controlling one locomotive
via the dial control knob and another via the function keys, or
operating a turnout switch via the function keys while controlling a
locomotive via the dial control knob).
Communication between Navigator and central station is
bidirectional; the Navigator can send commands to and receive updated
information from the central station and other bus modules.
The DiMAX Navigator 2.4GHz is factory equipped a 2.4GHz
transmitter. It communicates with the central station either wirelessly
or via a cable connection.
Three AA batteries are required for wireless operation; alkaline or rechargeable (NiMH or NiCd) batteries are recommended.
The Navigator has the ability to charge rechargeable
batteries during tethered operation, a feature that can be enabled or
disabled by using the Navigator control menu.
