Product Questions

I have a LX200GPS and I'm pretty sure the handbox I have with it is the 497, the one question that was already answered said it will not work with scopes that take the 497 autostar, but in another answer it says it works with all LX200's that are 2001 or newer, so will it work?

Will this work with a RCX400? I ask since I understand the original one is a "display only" type while this product seems to be "inteligent". Could you please clarify?
Many thanks!

I have an LX200GPS 8" from around 2003. The AUTOSTAR II controller has become finicky and unreliable. I'd like to get this one to replace it. It is currently running ver. 1.6 (or 1.6b).

I was told that the memory is on the motherboard of the 'scope and that this controller might not work because the memory is in the controller. So I'm confused.

Can you help me resolve this?

Does this come with the cable?  I'm replacing a controller that failed and need the cable as well for an LX200-12 ACF.
