GPS & Compass
Turns out I was calibrating the accelerometer and compass correctly.  Same as I used to do in my drone building days. 

I must have had a bad external GPS antenna because the GPS never connected to a satellite when using it.

I went back to Amazon and bought a Garmin marine GPS antenna and am really happy with the performance.  Even inside my house, the OP GPS will lock onto 12 satellites within seconds, then bounces around between 8-12.  Outside is even even better.  I was a little worried that this antenna would be compatible, but turns out it is.
