Re: Keypad Software Status?


Fernando, you have related my thoughts so well, A very fine post and one that really makes you want to read it and understand it. Unlike some negative posts that literally suck the life out of you as you read them. 

I think the people who have really stuck with their project and made it a solid performing piece of hardware are to be congratulated .  I have faith. 
Also I feel the little disrupters  of my own work life due to multiple factors that involve the slow down from the Covid pandemic.  They just slow you down and make you feel less efficient and less confident.

This question about "when is V5.X keypad firmware coming out" has been asked numerous times on a weekly basis. And often AP has stated that the release is not ready yet because the beta testers have not had many clear nights especially this winter to continue testing the new software. And I believe the V5.X manual is being worked on carefully to make sure no mistakes are included, then a revision has to be made. Plus COVID-19 caused the manufacturing of refractors & mounts as well as the assembly, testing, & shipping of completed items & projects to be delayed significantly, unfortunately & I am sure the folks at AP are working hard on everything <including the new keypad firmware release>. 
Yes it's inconvenient waiting a long time for something highly anticipated but what's important is the final product is released when all the program testing is finished & no "bugs" make their presence known while the user is going thru the different keypad menus/routines. They've asked that people be patient & I'm sure an announcement will be made when the new keypad software is about to be released.
