ok just a little update. Took it all outside and it's only -5 hrs off. If I unplug the gps and hit reset in the gps screen everything goes normal. I can then do 3 star alignment in eqmod and everything works. So still at a loss but hope that helps with any info anyone can provide.
My advice? Forget GPS for the moment. You don't need it anyway. Just type in your lat/lon into EQMOD INSURING IT'S THE SAME AS THAT IN YOUR PLANETARIUM PROGRAM and make sure the laptop's time is reasonably accurate (does NOT have to be to the second or even minute of GPS time). Make sure everything works, then puzzle out the dadgummed GPS.
