Yeah, but the printed command protocol doc from AP indicates that it is looking for and giving longitude in a 0-360 format. I think the firmware author needs to chime in to solve this one......

as the AP protocol is extending the LX200, I read back the LX200
description (
This indicates the presence of the sign, and that East longitudes are
negative (so -180 to 180 is the expected range).
The trace from ASCOM - and the log from PulseGuide both show a value
near 360 (but wrong: 355*50 for E 5 50).
