I got 2 of these when I purchased 2x of the latest passenger train (connected back to back). I removed the hub and motor at the rear and used it in my Emerald Night. I tested with bt remote and phone app .... 2x motors (one reversed), lights and colour sensor all work perfect. However, I have the passenger loco running with a motor in port A and the lights in port B, but I have nowhere to plug in the sensor ? We need 4 ports per hub or y split-er, so we could do .... 1x motor 2x light 1x sensor (my passenger train) 2x motor 1x light 1x sensor (my emerald night) 2x motor 2x light We also need long and short extension cables please Lego !

Overall, I see what Lego wanted to do with the new PUP system. It eliminates the IR weakness, removes the need for a separate receiver, and updates the system to be "app-enabled" like all the cool toys are now. I think that also brought some new limitations that Lego CAN remove, but hasn't yet. I'm looking forward to seeing the PUP system appear in Technic sets to see how Lego handles that.
I am excited by the potential provided in the new version of the Powered Up App. Tying together the best of Boost, Powered up elements and even WeDo sensors, as well as offering a variable level of complexity , in a unified platform is exciting. I am happy after running these tests that I should be able to control a train powered by a simple M motor running, being controlled using in line tiles.
