The controller is almost the same, but the alignment procedure is different. YOu have alignment stars (pick 2 stars on one side of the meridian), and then calibration stars (to calculate the cone error on the scope), where you can pick upto 4 stars on the other side of meridan.
With the latest handset fw you can do a fancy pseudo Polar align called Allstar align which can use other stars once you are aligned to calculate where Polaris should be. I'm just about to start playing with this feature for AP.
