Astro Fi 130 Alignment

Good evening all, Iíve just bought my first telescope ever (Celestron Astro Fi 130), and I got the wifi one because I thought it would be the easiest to learn with. Iíve just been trying to get is set up though and itís not so easy. I stuck it outside pointing at the Southern Cross, but when I chose one of the Crux stars on the SkyPortal app, the telescope turns in the complete opposite direction. It also said Jupiter is out of slew range. Itís almost like it thinks itís upside down. I have selected my time and location (Geelong, Victoria). Google and YouTube arenít at all helpful. Are there any tips I can get on aligning this thing? TYIA.
