After many years away I've setup my old CGE1400 but I don't have the controller because I sold it because I used to use software.

I'm having issues with serial to usb etc so bought a skyportal wifi dongle.

I like that its wireless and the interface is adequate but the app seems to think the starting position is somewhere underground.

I don't know exactly where because I've always stopped it before it does damage.

I twice got it to align and accuracy was okay but then off it went pointing in strange directions.

I've tried two devices (tablet and phone) and the first time it works okay then it goes weird.

I've installed and reinstalled etc but that doesn't make a difference now. 

Any ideas?
