8/29/2005 - StarDate GPS Adapter Firmware Revision 1.1 is released. This revision fixes a problem communicating with the AS-GT series telescope mounts. This is a critical update for AS-GT owners! Also fixes a problem where telescope time would occasionally be off by 3-4 seconds from GPS time. Telescope time should now agree within approximately 1 second, which is the resolution of the NMEA time data from the GPS receiver.
