Celestron's CGE GOTO

I was ready to buy a Celestron GGE GOTO mount, but after reading the March S&T review I've changed my mind. The reason I opted not to purchase is the mount's inability to track for more than 10 minutes past the meridian.

The mount appears to be a good value, in terms of stability and accuracy, but the tracking limitation is too serious a shortcoming, IMO.

Does anyone own one of these that can relate their experience with it? Does any know if Celestron is planning to modify this feature?
