    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe,
    The single GREEN blink is indicating ( you are in GPS MODE )
    The 2 RED blinks, indicate ( weak GPS signal ) 5 satellites
    The single GREEN blink ( GPS mode ) same as above
    The single RED blink ( ok GPS SIGNAL ) 6 satellites

    Ultimately you want a single GREEN blink ( GPS MODE ) with MORE than 6 satellites.( no RED blink )

    Maybe another member can confirm! I read the manual, this seems correct!
    I have a P2V, mine is a bit different, but I like to read all the manuals to different
    Models, like to know as much as possible!

    Hope this helps!
