If your Meade GPS thinks it's 2099, fix it for free with StarPatch!
Imagine if your telescope could access the Global Positioning System
so that it always knew when and where you were observing from. No more checking your watch, looking up site coordinates or fiddling
with the keypad to enter the date, time, latitude and longitude. StarGPS uses a single cable to connect your telescope to
receiver and automatically input these values... making your telescope
setup much easier and more precise!

If you own an Autostar 497/497EP or Audiostar controlled telescope
such as the Meade ETX, LXD, LX90, LX80, LT, LX65 or LX85 series or an upgraded LX200 Classic then we recommend that you consider upgrading to the StarGPS Package which adds a StarPatch registration key ($79) and USB-ASTAR cable ($30). StarPatch uses your Windows PC to perform a one-time,
quick and easy installation that reprograms the handset to accept raw GPS
data. You can then connect the GPS to your telescope, turn the scope on, and watch as the handset displays incoming GPS data
including time, number of satellites and signal strength as shown below. Once a location fix is obtained the handset will beep,
display the results and skip ahead to the "Align:" prompt. Click here for more information about StarPatch.
