    howdy

    I've had my p2v for 3 weeks now. no major mishaps but my gps will no longer lock onto more than 5-6 satellites. it actually toggles between 5-6 going back and forth blinking yellow then green. could a sensor be knocked loose in the shell?

    thanks in advance!

    It usually flashes red then green when it hasn't got enough sattelites, it flashes yellow and green when the course or home lock is turned on have you checked you're switches?
