I do not know that because here I directly attempted to connect to mount itself rather than going via the app. 192.168.4.1 is the mount IP.
I am guessing the default mode.of this mount is AZ? Because I have to chose AZ or EQ first when we connect through the SynScan app.

I am connecting to the mount via the SynScan Pro app on the Android phone . I have not yet figured a way to directly connect to mount wifi

None of the above drivers worked apart from indi_synscan_telescope. If we can connect to mount directly that will be great. Will follow up with Skywatcher.

EqMod Driver does not work alas. tested bunch of other drivers only indi_synscan_telescope works.

SynscanAltAz did not work for me with EQ mode setting on the mount. I had written to skywatcher to tell me on how to directly connect to mount without having to go via the app. I'll try what you say and report.

Sorry, I am not following what you intend to do here ? If you have the skywatcher AZ GTI you don't need to buy a wireless adapter. It should work both with the hand controller and with the inbuilt wifi.

Here is the update from PHD2 forums on this.

PHD2 requires the driver to support the INDI GUIDER interface, and apparently the synscan driver does not provide that functionality. It provides the ordinary mount capabilities like slewing, syncing and parking, but no guide capability. I think you'll need to post in the INDI forum to see if the driver can be updated to provide GUIDER capability.

Mount ; Skywatcher AZ GTI
GuideCamera : ZWO 120mm-s

I am trying to connect the new skywatcher AZ GTI in EQ mode to Phd2 . When I run the wizard and chose indi mount, I do not get any option to chose the indi mount drive; the drop down is empty/disabled.
Even trying to start Phd2 from ekos, PHD2-mount connection fails. Mount connection window in Phd2 shows that indi is connected . When the indi button is clicked it loads all the indi properties including the mount. Enabled verbose logging also shows me the mount commands, yet phd2 doesn't connect to mount.

I am using indi_synscan_telescope as mount driver and do not have troubles controlling the mount via ekos.

This is from phd2 debug logs.I am not sure if this error with indi or ekos. Any suggestions?

Did you try 2x2 or 3x3 bin? for plate solving this should help in speeding up the process.

Also if you can attach the ekos debug log that should help understanding what is the command sent to solver process.
