YouChoos Tweak and Drive PC Software

Let's face it, decoders (and especially sound decoders) are complex things with so many options that it can be difficult to understand how to change them to achieve what you want!

YouChoos has developed Tweak and Drive to help with this, providing easy-to-understand controls to tune every aspect of your Zimo decoder. In fact, it supports any DCC decoder, but has specific helps for Zimo.

Tweak and Drive runs on a PC computer with options to connect into a variety of DCC systems including SPROG, DigiKeijs DR5000, ESU ECOS, PIKO Smart, Roco Z21 and Lenz. We even have packages which include Tweak and Drive PLUS either a SPROG or DR5000 - so you know you're getting a great combination!

Tweak and Drive's Throttles can be one of 3 different sizes allowing you to tailor the display to the size of your screen, and how many Throttles you want to have visible at the same time...
