Have you done any further testing? This is very
disappointing, as I sold my LX200 several months ago,
planning on getting a GPS in the not-too-distant
future. I always used continuous mode and would not
want to be confined to leap-frog mode. I was hoping
that the GPS would act like the classic LX200, except
that the cord wrap problem would be fixed. Instead,
it looks like they've turned it into a glorified ETX.
If the GPS truly can't do continuous mode, I'll just
have to get a used classic LX200, but probably a 10"
this time, instead of the 8" that I had before.
