First things first. Your P2 is v2 not a v3. Next the compass has not to do with the mini iOSD. The mini iOSD is part of a system which includes a GoPro camera, 5.8Ghz video transmitter and a diversity receiver/monitor. Do you have all the other equipment? There is a list of the equipment I use in red at the bottom of this post.

If you do not have any of the other equipment I mentioned if not then the mini iOSD is of no use to you with out it. The function of an iOSD device is to supply telemetry information of battery, altitude, distance, direction, speed, pitch and roll onto a monitor screen. Need I go further??

The Mini-OSD has a CANbus in and CANbus out for this purpose. There are dozens of different configurations of the P2 (which is why I love it), so only you can decide on the best installation of the iOSD on your P2. There's dozens of videos on You Tube describing various installations, but all of them will require some soldering.

Upload a photo of the front legs of your P2 and not an extreme closeup.

Yes that's the can-bus connector for the iOSD module. Why not take a photo of all the other equipment that will be used for your FPV (first person view) to see what you have so if changes are needed it can be done before testing.

If you noticed that the two videos I sent they are installing the iOSD inside the shell. It makes for a cleaner install plus they are using plug n play cables which both faster than soldering and safer. So if you follow those videos it you make your life a lot simplier. Here a photo on how I installed mine.

Before thinking about replacing antennas just work with what you have at hand to see how it works for you. Look you spend allot of money on equipment just to find out it's not working any better than what you already have.
