Scott:

How about "standardizing" on the same plugs the D7A and the PocketTracker 
use for their serial connections?  I don't know the proper name, but it's 
like an 1/8 inch stereo headphone plug, but smaller (3/32").  I've been 
wiring all my trackers lately with that plug, so they're all 
interchangeable.  So for any tracker, I have a special programming cable 
with a DB9 to connect to my computer.

It wouldn't include power (would need a 2nd plug for that), but you (and/or 
all the rest of us) could easily make pigtails to connect the GPS of our 
choice work with it.

David, KY7DR
