I purchased a CN-16 unit from Opticsplanet. The unit works great right out of the box. Just plug it into the AUX port of the CGE, set up the GPS option on the CGE and you're done. All information including latitude and longitude and real time are displayed on unit. Just two star align and you're viewing. This can't get any simpler. Great price and service. Thanks Opticsplanet.

Pros:  Enters time, lat. and lon. correctlly. Improves goto accuracy.
Cons:  Hard to find CN16 brackets for your scopes...
Would recommend:  yes

If you observe from different locations the CN16 will put your exact latitude and longitude into your telescope, plus it will enter the exact time. It does improve goto accuracy, since the data entered is more precise than what we normally care to enter. If you observe at the same location all the time, then it is wiser (and cheaper) to find your exact lat. and. lon. and enter it manually and make sure that you enter exact time taking daylight savings into account.

Author: Marcia , Newbie who spent too much $ on useless accessories, from Mahwah, NJ on Feb 16, 2009
Pros:  gives long & lat of new locations when traveling
Cons:  does NOT help with star align
Would recommend:  no

Forget that whole Polar Align speil...the reason you get a GPS is to help with alignment which this doesn't. You still have to align your scope...you just know where you are faster. And if you're always in your backyard it's even more useless. Save yourself $200 - look at a clock and then look up your Lat & long.
