The Synscan and Celestron handsets are dreadful hangovers from the 1980's... a very poor text-based user interface with commands requiring ENTER and ESCape ... real dinosaurs from the early 1980s microprocessor era which is when the people who designed these learnt their trade.
High-time that paradigm was ditched and replaced with a graphical user interface to modern standards, along the lines of what SkySafari does, but fixing the interface between SkySafari and Skywatcher/Celestron scopes which is overly complex, still requires the handset and additional apps running, and very few actually get it to work - and even then its flaky.
Make an equivalent that works easily and directly just using the necessary hardware - without the Synscan handset, and without other clunky unreliable apps - would be nice; and using the location/date/time automatically from iOS and a rough bearing to N or S pole. And do it all wirelessly - cables are last century.
IMHO the user should learn the rest, starting with a Planisphere in one hand and Norton's Star Atlas in the other.
Better yet - using 2-3 stars, solve the Surveyors Equation in reverse to determine the transformation between the mount coordinate system and the actual sky coordinates, allowing for offset from the pole (equatorial or in altaz mode), plus a pointing model.
