Will this work with sky sync?

Will this work with sky sync?
Asked by: John
Yes but currently there is a small problem. I updated the StarSense firmware about 10 days ago. SkySync gets time and location but then I have to switch back from GPS to manual to do alignment. Alignment works fine. I submitted a ticket to Celestron and they are investigating. Others also have submitted tickets. I've been using SkySync and StarSense for several years without problems until now. I'm sure this annoyance will get fixed. You may not experience this if you don't update.
