I have had great results with most any of the serial units. My first was 
  the Delorme TripMate, then the Rand McNally, and even the closeout 
Radio Shack DigiTraveler...

All that is required is that they are serial and NMEA output. I modified 
the TripMate with a 5vdc regulator and feed it the same 12vdc that the 
radio (D7/D700), uses...

I have not modified the DigiTraveler as I have yet to use it long enough 
to need the batteries replaced. It turns off when I shut the radios off. 
When I turn the radio on, the sync up is pretty fast, maybe a couple 

But, to answer your question, no... Not that I am aware of. But just 
soldering on the miniature stereo connector was no big deal...
