The LX3 does not have a real database. If you are seeking a "goto" conversion you are limited to acquiring a new mount. In a fork mount that means a Meade LX200 or LX200GPS. You can sell your LX3 (assuming it is functioning) for $500-600 and purchase a used LX200 for $1000-1200 or just about the same as buying the mount and fitting your OTA to it. You might get $150 for the LX3 mount if you have a working handbox. Pretty much the same economics if moving to a used LXD75 or ASGT CG-5. HTH
