Can my current handpaddle control a new ETX-80?

So, my question is if I plug my 497 into the computer to get the AutoStarUpdater program to talk to it, will ASU figure out what firmware I need, overwrite the alternative firmware I loaded years ago, and leave me with something that will be happy to control the ETX-80?
I assume I'll have to tell the paddle it's controlling an alt-az mount now, and probably something else as well.

Using a 497 to control my ETX80 with no problems. You will have to adjust the data settings, recalibrate, and retrain the drives.
You will have to go through the setup process and pick an ETX scope too for the type of scope. Better than the ETX-80, get the ETX-90 Mak-Cass, it's a much better scope.
