Hi Jasem, does it make any difference to ekos / indi if the latitude is displayed as -3° or as 357°? It seems to try and default to 357°, and I change it
cheers

Hi Jasem, worked like a dream.....many thanks, hope it helps other users out.... I found that the driver crashes when you ask the scope to park..just after the command is issued, ekos/ indi indicates a driver crash. the scope keeps on moving to the home position. I've included the log file from the latest trial..
thanks again,and clear skies..

Hi Jasem,
here are the two log files.....one with long/lat in the correct place, which puts my starting point in the southern hemisphere, and the other inversed....which works? I'm at 48:23:44N 3:17:43W(-3:17:43)...cheers Terry

Hi Jasem,
it almost works on the 'old' install... Compiled from source. The one problem that happens now, is that in the site info, latitude needs long, and long needs lat? if I put the data in correctly, my home position of west 0°dec suddenly appears in the southern hemisphere, and if I inverse the data, it starts correctly? very strange....
thanks again for your help

Hi Jasem, here are the logs as requested. The PC log is an older install that upgraded to v0.7 of the driver a couple of weeks ago, and the Raspi one is a fresh 'bleeding' install this afternoon.
Many thanks

Hi Jasem, Thanks for the reply....unfortunately the new version does not work on the laptop or the raspi 3B+. Both are running ubuntu mate 18 (have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions). I've also tried astroberry server, and still the same problem. I get the [ERROR] map::at. I have an old pc running mate 18.04.2 x86_64 and version 0.5 works fine.... Is there a way to install v0.5 on a newer library, or is the a link to a v177 indilib.git that I can compile from source.
Thanks and clear skies
Terry

Hi, thanks for your reply...I only know the basics of compiling from source..... Is using travis any different?

Hi, has anyone got a copy of the 0.5 driver still? No matter what I do,rebuilds etc I cannot get version 7 to run. I've been struggling with this for the last week or so.
cheers
