Sent: Monday, October 31, 2005 19:48:21 From: richard seymour (firstname.lastname@example.org) Attached is a patch kit for the LX200gps firmware version 4.0l This kit does not have -all- of the usual LX200gps kit features, due to difficulties in getting them all to fit in the nooks and crannies of this particular firmware version. I expect to be posting a more complete version later. This kit has most of the usual features, plus some new ones to counteract some of v4.0l's native 'features'. This kit has: Display and Editing of Drive Training Values Optional Automatic Satellite Track starting at down-count=zero Version number change from 4.0l to 4.0L Adds "peek" function for use with Andrew Johansen's PEC editors. Adds :gpr# and :gpx# serial commands for greater access to the GPS receiver. Override "Not Aligned" test Allow 25000% Guide Rate Turn OFF Front Panel Power socket (Fan) at boot. Ability to surpress "0 to Align" and "0 for Tour" prompts. The planned future update will add: (maybe) Display PEC values during Training/Updating Remembers and restores a Custom Tracking Rate setting across power-cycles. "? for SYNC" (for folks whose [enter] key is wearing out) 10x Finer Control of Custom Tracking Rate (0.01% steps) Unzip the file, read the readme, click the ClickMe, update... have fun --dick
