[aprssig] GPS FIX MOUNT FOR MOBILE USE???????????

What's the connector on the D700?  Is that the 3.5mm jack?  Does it provide 
power too?

I resell the Deluo GPS Lite, which is great for inside mounting but you 
probably wouldn't want to permanently mount it on the outside of your car. 
The Garmin GPS 18 should work for that, and it's under $100.

The units I'm selling come with a DB9 connector for use with the 
OpenTracker, TT3, and probably the KPC-3+ though I haven't tried it.  If 
there's enough demand I could probably sell them with the right connector 
for the D700/D7A.
