I have yet to see a complete wireless solution for goto mounts. Even mounts for complete automation have wires connecting them directly to the computer.

It'd help to know what you intend by a complete solution. If you mean complete control of everything in the observatory by wireless link from somewhere else to the observatory computer, lots of us do that. If you just mean a wireless link from a handbox to a computerized mount, that's not uncommon either. Meade offers such a controller for their setups and Orion offers a generic solution for most mounts. Lots of Tak users use a PDA with Bluetooth for the same thing.
