[aprssig] GPS info

Tomtom Go only runs Tomtom software and lacks a serial output to get NMEA 
data out of it.  The Ique does send GPS as a COM port, so if you could find 
a Palm or PocketPC APRS program, it would work within the unit.  However, 
the Ique does not send NMEA GPS data out to a computer or a D700, 
etc.  This is in the Ique manuals.

As for the Quest, it seems it only has USB, so you're probably out of luck 
there too.  It sends Garmin's protocol to the laptop, so it would work with 
some products that are compatible with Garmin protocol.  It does not 
support NMEA.

I use the Garmin GPSMAP76S on my D700, but I realize that you want 
autorouting and the other features the Ique, Tomtom Go and the Quest provide.
