The GPS Problem with some older versions of Meade AutoStar has been fixed and updates are available. Here is the message I just received:
"I wanted to reach out and let you know that we have a solution for the GPS rollover issue.
All the information can be found on this page https://www.meade.com/support/ if you scroll down the page a bit you will see it. Would you mind passing along this information to anyone who has a question on the 4M?
If you have any questions, please do let me know! Thanks Bill!"
I tried the link and scrolled down to the bottom area of the page and all the information is there for the various versions of AutoStar. The new AutoStar Updater 6.1 is set up to download the software with the fixes for the various versions.
