ok after doing some digging and endless searches ive come up with this:

Pinout on usb:

pin 4 = ground / black wire
pin 3 = Data + / green wire
pin 2 = Data - / white wire
Pin 1 = Vbuss / Red wire

Now for the pin out for Meades Autostar 497

pin 4 is Ground
Pin 3 isnt connected
Pin 2 is Transmit
Pin 1 is recieve

Makes sens for me to connect Pin 4 of usb to pin 4 of RJ11 connection on controller
Pin 1 of usb isnt connected to controller
so do i wire pin 3 of usb to pin two on controller and pin 2 of usb to pin 1 on controller? or do i have it backwards?

ok so no matter what i did, i could not bypass the serial connection for this wiring, Ive made my own cables with a usb to serial port adapter, all and all it cost me $30 to make my own cables, so as much as i wanted it to work, usb straight to RJ10 does not work.

Finally got it lol!
