For Singapore cars, I think most of you are aware that there are 2 slots provided in the ERP IU holder. To improve IU reception, V-Kool material directly above the IU was also removed with a small opening by the workshop. What I have done is to pull out the IU from the 1st upper slot and insert it into the lower 2nd slot. This leaves an opening to place the Mobile 10x on top of the IU without V-KOOL blocking. The GPS fix is quick and the GPS signal strength is as good as installing an external antenna.

This is very interesting; appreciate some pics. BTW, have you experienced any problems with errors on the ERP IU with the 10X slotted above it? I thought the IU should have unblocked "view" of the ERP gantry to avoid errors.
