This kit provides:

(e)  Adds "peek"  function for use with Andrew Johansen's PEC editors.
(f)  Adds :gpr# and :gpx# serial commands for greater access to the GPS receiver.
(g)  *Remembers and restores a Custom Tracking Rate setting across power-cycles.
(h)  *Override "Not Aligned" test
(i)  Allow 25000% Guide Rate
(m)  *Turn OFF Front Panel Power socket (Fan) at boot.
(n)  *Ability to surpress "0 to Align" and "0 for Tour" prompts.
(o)  Adds Utilities/Take GPS Fix    ... to allow keypad-commanded
   update of Autostar Time via the GPS, even if it's already been done.
(p) Sets GPS-UTC Offset to -zero- after Reset.

..and a future update shall provide:
(l)  10x Finer Control of Custom Tracking Rate
