Autostar 497 new
      #5572125 - 12/15/12 08:05 AM

Both my ETX-125 and LXD-75 call for an Autostar 497 controller. Can I use the one from the ETX on the LXD?

Thanks,

Bob

Disregard...answered my own question . The LXD is listed in the set up menu on the ETX handset, so looks like all 497's are created equal.

you have to reset, recalibrate, and retrain every time you change your 497 to a different mount.
