Earlier versions of the Select allowed for the decoder to have the pre-set direction (default) changed by holding down one of the “Direction Arrow” keys for more than 3 seconds. However, it was possible to make accidental changes to the Decoder’s Default Direction when holding down a “Direction Arrow” key for too long when attempting to change a locomotive’s running direction. In Select version 1.2 the Decoder Default Direction is now set with a two key operation.  This is now achieved by pressing and holding at the same time both the “0” and one of the Direction Arrow buttons which would be specific to the direction you wish to change for 3 seconds.
