The issue is probably fixed by PR: github.com/indilib/indi/pull/229
Can you test if we can close the issue?

Yeah, I've found it as well. Nice catch and brillant idea - and so simple to build.

Actually using good quality twisted pair cable can extend your serial link range quite substantially.

It uses standard system/libc functions to establish local time. Are you sure you have current timezone data installed?
Is your computer showing proper UTC/Local times? What is gpsmon saying?

Found the problem. NSE was using different name for the slewing mode switch (SLEWMODE same as eqmod and few others) while telescope_simulator and the template telescope driver as well as your middleware is using TELESCOPE_SLEW_RATE. I have switched the code and it works. Expect PR soon.
It may be a slight problem with OSX version since I remember that there was some issue around it. But I believe this version is better.

It works on simulator. It is not working with NSE - but this is my problem ;)

I probably did something wrong here. I'll check and get bak to you.

It works, thanks, but for some reason speed settings stopped working.
I cannot spot anything wrong with the code, maybe you can discover why it stopped working?
When you change the speed slider on SS screen nothing happens in INDI panel
(previously it nicely changed between four speeds).

Exactly. That will make tablet/phone/pc another nice client for indi. It would be better if they implement native indi protocol driver but as is it is already very useful. Actually, this motivates me even stronger to continue nse driver development. The tablet control at the scope makes it very practical and makes a nice controller from the rpi connected to a scope - and you do not need additional screen/connections to the scope.

The slew speed setting is working fine but the slew buttons on SkySafari screen do nothing. Judging from the source there is no support for M[eswn] slew commands in the driver. Would it be possible to implement them?

Great work!
Even the align function works.
But it seems that with nexstarevo driver I cannot manually slew the scope from skysafari by on-screen buttons.
What should I change in the nse driver to properly react to the movement and speed commands from the middleware.?

And if I may put down my two cents as a paying and satisfied customer of SkySafari 5 Pro - *please* at least consider implementing this bridge. It will make your program much more useful for people like me - running the scope from the RPi and controlling it remotely from the PC. Right now it is only useful for playing and demonstrations. If I want to do anything more serious I need to drop it and change to INDI.
I would also vote for Linux support - but that is quite different story... ;)

For me as a user of indi-enabled programs and skysafari the main point would be ability to use both at the same time without disturbing the calibration and workings of any of the programs. This is really the main point. The applications have strengths and weaknesses. I would love to use S-S on my phone at the scope while not loosing control from the client running on my PC (I use linux, you will probably not support linux in the near future ...).
Regarding UI - Jasem should weight on this but I think it should be reasonably easy to expose indi properties in your UI without disrupting your design. You have different setup screens for different mounts already - this will be just another one.
There are at least two android clients for indi (remote observatory and ipparcos).
