I have seen a previous thread that the way to connect is to leave the mount blank and only connect to the guide scope. However this thread dates back to 2019 and I note that Staradventurer can be now chosen in the drop down list of mounts. Has this changed anything?
Should the Tablet on which the Stellarmate app is running be connected to the Stellarmate hot spot or should the tablet and the Stellarmate both be connected to the Staradventurer wifi?
Thanks in advance for any guidance

Did you have any luck connecting to your mount? I recently added Stellarmate OS on a Pi4 to my Star Adventurer 2i and was successful in connecting it. I have a micro usb cable from the mount to the Pi and an st4 cable from the guide cam to the mount. Seems to be working well that way so far.
Interesting solution to connect SA to RPi4 using USB. I need to try it too. I have a similar designed ioptron SGP astrotracker.
I wonder if this combination of connection allows you to control the mount on the RA axis via EKOS Kstars?
Yes, it's interesting to try and test. Luckily you don't have to wait for good weather to do it. You can simply run EKOS Kstars at home and connect SA to it and try to control the motion of the RA axis with the GOTO command
Just as an update, I had previously reported trouble with my Canon 550 D not connecting reliably.
I updated the Canon firmware - and also reflashed Stellarmate on a new sd card - so I am not sure what resolved the issue but I was able to connect to all three devices in EkoS on a laptop and using the Stellarmate app on an android tablet. Experiencing crashes with my iPad.
