On a latest version AP900 the tracking rate is not updated when goto

Well, that is an interesting idea. Most of the time, when you go to an object
like that, you will be wanting to track it for a while, but not always. There
are times that I go to the Moon or the Sun only to get a first fix on the sky
when it is too bright to pick up anything else. The next object would then be
a star or planet, which would allow me to further refine my polar alignment.
I do mostly imaging, which means I want to track sidereal at all times.
