    So I have a p2v+ and when I do a compass calibration it will sometimes flash green once the red 2 x's. Not getting red and yellow flashing lights but red and green.
    I know it probably is an issue with the calibration but it would be nice if I new exactly what it means. Please help me out! Thanks, Rick

    So when you initiate compass cal you should get solid yellow,
    then after completing the horizontal rotation you should get solid green,
    then after completing the vertical (nose down) rotation [may take more than 360 degrees of rotation] it will return the GPS status sequence you describe as green followed by red flashes indicating the number of sats. 'locked'... this is GOOD.

    Alternating red - yellow is NOT what you want as THAT indicates a compass cal problem.

    Cool! Im glad its a good thing! So far this has had no issues but my P2 had a few which would cause it to crash. You made my day!
