    First, question. What are the two sensors on the legs of the new P2? (I know there is also an antenna down 2 legs as well.

    If one of the sensors on the legs is the GPS, has anyone relocated the GPS antenna?

    The one sensor (with the 5 conductor cable) is the compass. Moving it near metals or magnetic field creating devices is not recommended and it should maintain current or proper orientation to the forward or front of the a/c.

    The other device on the leg (besides the two antennas) is a 'CANBus' connector for adding accessories.

    The GPS module is located at the top of the upper shell inside the a/c. It is 'hidden' behind a metallic shield.

    Yaou can hide the CAN connector inside, but the compass should stay where it is.
