I've used Skysafari Plus's "basic encoders" a lot to connect with my DIY telescope digital setting circles. (See https://github.com/vlaate/DobsonianDSC and the linked Cloudynights thread)
It seems to work in a simple way: sending a "Q" query command, and expecting and encoders position response.
Sadly, when I configure the telescope as "Basic Encoders", even if set the type as "alt azimuth Go-to", the goto button remains disabled.
It would be very easy for the Skysafari developers to send a "G" command (analogous to the current Q command) followed by two encoder positions, so that the Skysafari "Go-to" button could be enabled. This would make it enormously easier for DIY builders to make go-to telescopes using Skysafari as a "hand controller".
When the scope type is set as " alt as push to" the goto could remain disabled to prevent issues with legacy Nexus systems.
Then the type is set as "alt as push to", this new go-to command should be usable.
Is this something we can hope for?
