Bathroom automatic air vents

We want to move our bathroom sink to another wall and wanted to find out if you have had any experience with automated air vents under the new sink rather than running a new air vent out of the roof for this relocation.

Check with your local building department as to code restrictions of using a Studor vent in lieu of conventional venting.

I never been seen like that most of the time they also move it.

It still might be possible to re-use the existing vent if you can connect it in the attic.
The studor vents are often allowed. I know of one jurisdiction that won't allow them unless there is no other alternative
