From what I can find, they don't have internal tachometers like the NXT motors, which I guess means they can't use the rotate() and rotateTo() Motor functions.
Can anyone confirm/deny that for me? Thanks.

I have used this motor connected to NXT brick multiple times, for example here

Also, it explicitly states "Allows you to connect your LEGO 9V electric systems to the new Power Functions!". The description of the 20" cable doesn't mention that.
