Re: Software Update to V5.XXX for Existing Keypads

Joe Zeglinski

    I would add ...  besides software, will there be a Kit, or at least instructions,  to Upgrade (or retro-fit)  that terribly dim Keypad display module with a more readable  OLED one, so we can actually see more than just a blank screen, even on a cloudy day?
    AP may not have considered some people doing solar observations,  and a need to control the mount by hand, but I find it easier to check out or service my AP mounts,  using that rugged AP Keypad.
    Also hope some future new Keypad has an “innovative”  external,  slide-in battery access coin-slot rather than dismantling the delicate Keypad fibre optic  internals etc.
    But, I am certainly looking forward to the expected software features.

Is there any estimate on when the new V5.XXX keypad software and membranes will be available to the other mounts that use the GTOCP4 or GTOCP5 ?
