That makes sense.   

I'm just wondering if there is significant temperature and humidity change at localized heights.
I sorta feel like humidity varies even within just a few feet of the ground.
Also, I'm not even sure how much humidity affects the pointing model.

In an observatory I suspect the environment is a bit more consistent.

I'm out in the open.   The computer is mounted on the pier... tho there's a USB hub on the OTA.   
Right now I have MGBoxV2 on the OTA which is kinda convenient to keep it out of the way.

I was not sure what the GPS would do as far as acquiring signals as the mount slews, so I have my MGBoxV2 mounted at the top of the observatory walls, i.e. immobile.  The PC is also not on the OTA, so the SUB connection is easy.  If you have a PC (NUC, mini-PC, ASAIR) on the OTA, then your situation is different.
