In the past few months, I've owned two CGEMs. The first was a rat's nest of troubles, and the second was only marginally better. I wouldn't be the best person to speak about the virtues of a CGEM.
I traded the second one in on my Atlas, and am still shaking-out the software, etc., as well as getting ready to record a PEC curve to load via EQMOD.
The problem is the weather patterns we seem to be stuck in along the SoCal coastal area. Clear all day long, then the high, thin clouds start rolling in for the evening. It's maddening.

As for GPS, I just use an iPhone app for the location to enter into EQMOD. If I'm in an area with no cell service, I have an old Garmin handheld unit that'll do. I don't know how much it costs, but that's something you'll need to decide.
You'd benefit from reading both manuals a couple of times before setting up; one for the hand controller, the other for the mount. Become familiar with the terminology, etc. Even then, it'll take a couple of set-ups before you feel comfortable. We've all been there.
