My only issue is minor. The battery door tis the best place to put the stick tape for securing the module, but the door comes off easily if bumped. I am also having issues getting a power supply to work with it, currently running on batteries. It's supposed to work on 6-12vdc. I think my plug is not making good connection. It should be noted that I DID NOT purchase a supply from Orion, I was using what I had.

Anybody had any experience with the Orion version of the wi-fi control? How well does it work? Does it connect to a current Wi-Fi router or does it make its own network? Is it secured via WPA or ...? How long does a set of batteries last? The list of compatible mounts doesn't specifically list CG-5GT. But they make it sound like it works with any RS-232 interface mount. Anybody tried it with a CG-5GT? Does it also roast marshmallows?
It is the same unit as that sold by Car--I mean "Southern Stars," so reviews of that unit apply. It will work well with the CG5 and will _not_ roast marshmallows if you are lucky.

as far as cooking marshmallows, if one uses an external 12 power supply, it does convert extra voltage (it only uses 6V) into heat which is normal, but hopefully not enough to roast marshmallows, runaway pigs, and suchwhat.
