Error in the Software?
If one activates a function on the track layout shown on the iPad ( for instance points or signals) the whole layout disappears from the screen of the iPad and shall have to be re-called. Only the symbol of the activated function remains. The same thing occurs when you activate a function on the layout of the CS2, once again the layout disappears from the screen of the iPad, but still remains on the screen of the CS2. There has to be some kind of an error in the software.
November the 28. 2011 I have been contacted by Märklin who tells me that the version 5.0 of the new iPad2 has this problem, and that they are working seriously to solve it through the software of the app.
