Go through the 3-star GOTO alignment procedure, then go back into the alignment menu and a "Polar align" option should have appeared at the bottom. Follow the instructions displayed on the handset, then do another 3-star alignment to get the mount's GOTO accuracy back. You can repeat the polar align function as well to improve the accuracy.
