Quick question. For my celestron avx mount , do I choose nexstar or celestron gps as a driver. I haven't tested it live but both seem to basically work. Thanks!

Both are the same driver but just different aliases.

I can't seem to tell from the driver description, but can this driver access the Celestron GPS adapter that plugs into the auxiliary port of the AVX Mount to obtain site and time information?

Despite its name "Celestron GPS", it actually does not use the Celestron GPS adapter, but the name stuck for historical reasons.

I'm wondering how this driver differs from the synscan driver? Because I've read somewhere to try nexstar or celestron GPS drivers for EQ mounts.

They're completely different drivers that share nothing in common.
