- Aug 5, 2014StarPatch updates a 497 Autostar at about a 115 kbaud rate, not 9600.
(sneaky compression and programming)
(a) if you're paid the registration fee.
(b) if you're using the Free version, it runs at 115kbaud for *half* of the update, then drops to "Meade Speed" for the 2nd half.
Meade's ASU (at 9600 baud) takes about 20 minutes to update a 497.
StarPatch (free) takes 11 minutes
StarPatch (registered/paid-for) takes 2 minutes
StarPatch performs better error-checking during the update, too.
StarPatch does NOT have the "user object library" functions that Meade's ASU has.
