Tracking Rate For Meade LX200 GPS

I would like to enter custom tracking rates instead of just sidereal and lunar rates for my LX 200 GPS 10-inch scope. When I go to the appropriate menu, I'm asked to enter a number. Unfortunately, there is no mention in the owner's manual about what the number means. Minutes per rotation? Percentage of the sidereal rate? If I want the polar axis to revolve once every 1440 minutes (solar rate) instead of 1436 (sidereal rate), what value do I enter?
