just realised the VBOX2 II which i ordered, shows 60 programmable memories in the manual, and on the box, NOT the 99 as advertised.

i dont think i'll ever need the 99 tbh - but should I send back on point of principle or just live with it.

what would you do?

There is so little choice on V boxes now. What would you choose instead?

Have you tried to store a satellite position in P98 or P99 on the box ?

lol YES! it worked, i managed to store all what i needed - 42 sats - and then as a test i tried storing one at position 88 and it worked....
all set now! working a treat on that motor, wonder how long it will last in the winds...
:) - will still keep the polar mount and actuator IF it all goes pear.
thanks again for all your help @moonbase - sorry for all the questions.

I think the manual might be carried over from an earlier model that had 60 programmable positions and they did not update the text regarding the number of positions available to store satellites.
