Received info on replacing the GPS ceramic patch as part # 931-1026-ND.After doing research found that that patch is 12mmx12mmx4mm with a gain of -.02Dbi. The patch that's in the P2V+ is 25mmx25mmx2mm With a gain of 2Dbi. Want to increase gain so I need a part # 931-1126-ND 25mmx25mmx4mm with a gain of 5Dbi.
If you use the 931-1026-ND your losing Gain

Yes I believe that patch is 2Dbi the same as the factory patch that comes on the P2V+.

hunch, it depends on how fast someone wants it. It'll be about $8 if you order from digikey above. But, be prepared to wait ~10 days to receive it.

I guess you're not a fan of Amazon Prime ;)

My Digikey order was shipped via USPS from Fargo, ND on March 9th. It arrived to me in Harrisburg, PA on March 17th. Perhaps I'm just the exception though ;)

they most likely have different wharehouse's and ship whichever has stock at order time. Also I seem to remember they had many shipping options to pick from, I may have chosen a faster shipping for a buck or 2
I got mine back in Jan when many were starting to do this..
I actually ordered 2 different ones to test in my 2 p2's and both worked great . OEM sucked bad , had hard time getting 6 often.

no matter the source its a great cheap upgrade well worth doing

Does one work better than the other? Or, are they pretty close?

when both were running 3.08 I would say maybe the 1126 in the plus had a slight edge over the p2v1 with the 1015 .
BOTH were so far superior to OEM it like getting a new quad.. I could actualy get sat lock now !

But it was only a few weeks till 3.12 , I updated the plus but not the p2v1 to 3.12. to me it hindered the gps somehow, but at this point I am not sure.
It still locks fast and with good counts.

I would use the 1126 if I were doing it again though.
