So if I want to respond back to the thread, that it's possible to use a mobile app over wifi to initialize the mount, but that you must unpark it from the last parked position, correct? Also, does that imply that they need to use Luminos, since SkySafari does not yet have the capability to unpark from "last parked"?

On my two mounts with CP4 I can fully initialize the mount with eitherThere is a difference, but it is not because of the CP5.
Unparking from one of the park positions is something many users will do with a mobile setup. Because the Mach 2's encoders always know where the mount is pointing, you must always unpark the Mach 2 from the last-parked position, and not from one of the park positions.
