Maybe this is not the place.

but I'm looking for some help with my z21 (white box)

I got one recently and I wanted to use it with my Marklin locos (39500 and 37359)

I'm made sure the wires are correct, set to Motorola , and everything but they don't work :(

I set up the address as the ones that the locos had from factory.

37359 turns the lights on right away as soon as I set it on the track, but no responsive using the mobile app.

The thing says ... DCC and Motorola compatible ... am I missing a setting??

anybody could shine some light??

You can check at Z21 homepage and the answers.
I don´t have this digital system.

DCC means Digital Command Control.

Not sure if this helps, but I've had zero problems with my Z21 (black box), it might be worth deleting then re adding them?

Most Marklin mfx do not work with z21.

See Compatibility with external digital components FAQ on z21

Is MFX also supported?
No, MFX is not supported.

Why not? All Märklin mfx also support MM protocol, all Trix mfx also support DCC.

The locos discussed here should work using the MM protocol. And as far as I can tell this is what Pablo tried.
