One step closerPros: Cons: Comments:
Using these cables in combination with the 9 pin to USB brought me closer to updating my Meade 497 AutoStar. Many problems with the software finding the controller. Once that was accomplished using the cables, the Meade Updater would not recognize my internet connection to run firmware and software updates.
