    Default Factory Lenz DCC decoders, can I add stuff to them?

    Hi guys,
    I'm looking at this:
    https://www.hiawathahobbies.com/N-Al...e_p_20266.html
    But I want to add a functional beacon to it, can I do this with the decoder it comes with or would it need to be replaced?
    Did someone say whitcomb?

    Can you look up the specific decoder to see how many functions it has?

    Just looked it up, looks like 2 function, so unless I want to give up a light the answer is no

    The Lenz decoders Atlas used for years ...... is very basic at best . But I think you just found that out . Even the CV's are limited IIRC . The NCE ones they used recently are a better decoder , but still has limited functions
