While I can't profess to be an expert on the TrakBox, (I just got one 
and am in process of setting up), I think that you should read the 
software manual carefully. You have an option of north or south pointing 
and you can set limits of travel. The difference in travel on yours is 
that it turns 450 degrees. I don't think the TrakBox can deal with the 
conversion of the extra 90 degrees wrapping around (Experts weigh in 
here). But you can program the ADC limits so that it will track 0-360. I 
don't see any logical reason to change the scale on your azimuth meter.
