    hey all,

    I'd like to place a 3" x 3" sticker on top of my P2 right above where the GPS unit is located under the shell. I was wondering if anyone had experience with decreased satellite sensitivity after placing a sticker or full shell wraps (or even paint) on their P2?

    thank you

    As long as it's not a metal foil sticker it will have no impact.
    You can use a handheld GPS inside a fibreglass boat hull or in your car.
    The GPS works fine tucked under the plastic shell of your Phantom and won't notice a sticker or coat of paint.
