I have an ETX125 Pe and a Mac computer and an application "Autostarx" on my computer that I am trying to use to put a patch file (Version43gg) on to the 497 handbox .  Has anybody out there tried to use this autostarx app. and has it work OK.  And if it has work, what is the steps you took?   I can not seem to find to much info. on the autostarx on the internet.. I need it to enable the 909apm adapter  for guiding.  An info would be appreciated..  Thanks..

Yea;  Your right but this app is for the Mac "autostarx" but I am not sure if it will work..  I don't want to mess up my 497 handbook.  So I haven't found anybody yet, that has had success using it..  You can find it at:   www.rti-zone.org/macosx_autostarx.php   And there is not much instructions on it or a Manuel .   So I am stuck, unless I invest in a  small window based Laptop..  I thank you for your respond, and hope someone out there has had success.
