    GPS is currently not wired to the pass through. It is wired direct.
    I am not sure if the stock antenna lead is long enough to reach the pass through.
    The black lead that is currently on the GPS board will need to go to the pass through connector.
    Then you will need a jumper to go from the pass through to the GPS module where the black lead is now connected.

    Teo can tell you the exact connections. But for now you can at least check to see if the black lead is long enough.

    It'll reach. It's not a nice clean route but it runs all the way with just a little slack left.

    Images seem to be broken. I use photobucket.

    Awesome! Thanks for those drawings. I get how the passthrough works now, and I'll be ordering a u.fl jumper soon to get the new antennas hooked up.

    Everything works! Got the jumper installed and everything buttoned back up, and I now get a GPS lock in 3 seconds, compared with a minute or two with the internal antennas.
