Pinouts confuse me (along with almost everything else but I digress) but it
sounds like you've got it right UNLESS PIN 2 is the data out of the gps
serial cable.  Did you try PIN 2 to ring on the radio plug?

After some experimenting, I still can't get my earthmate to work.  First off

my RS Digitravlier works with my D7 and D700 NO Problem.  The Earthmate 
works with the included software and a computer either USB or Serial DB9 via

the battery box and cable.   I am using the shield to pin 5 and Red to pin 
3.  Delorme told me I needed +5 on pin 4 DTR in order to output NEMA.  With 
+5 on Pin 4 the green LED will flash and so will the amber on the battery 
pack.  This GPS will not output to the D7& or D700.  Am I overlooking 
something or what gives.  HELP!!  Thanks.
