[aprssig] Best GPS with audio

The site kicked my email back to me. It would not let me send the pictures
so if you want to see them let me know and I will send them directly to you.


 

 

Hi Mike,

 

I am not sure if the 276C is newer then the SPIII. The 276C is sold as a
marine unit but you just switch it over to automotive in the setup menu. It
does use all the same maps as other Garmin GPS units use. It has two serial
ports but I don't know if they will work at the same time. I think it does
but I don't want to give you bad information.

 

I sent a picture of it mounted in my Jeep and a screen shot after I received
a packet from an APRS user (KC8WCC). 

 

I hope that helps you,

Brian

Brian,

Is this newer and better then the StreetPilot III?  Also, does it have

regular maps, someone told me it was marine only?  Also, as the other

gentleman asked does it support 2 serial ports at the same time?

I have the 276C and I like it a lot. It works well with my D700. I will try

to post a picture of my setup later today.

I've just ordered a gps 276c.  It has two serial ports AND usb.... I'll

let you know how it works with a d700 when it comes in next week.  I

have conflicting info about using both serial ports at the same time,

but I hope to be able to use 1 serial for kenwood NEMA IN/OUT, and

either the 2nd serial or USB to connect to my laptop.

 

One other neat thing about this GPS is that you can edit the icons.  I

plan to edit them to match APRS for the most part.  Not that the d700 is

going to assign them anything other than the default dot... but For the

few stations i care enough to track, I'll manually change the icon.

 

Also, many of the handheld garmins do USB and serial on the same port -

just like some PC mice will auto select USB/ps2.  Depends which cable

you have plugged in.  A friend just bought a 60CS and it does both.  The

5xx series rino units auto select USB/serial on one port.

 

BTW, when my kenwood pushes a waypoint to hte gps, it gives it a dot for

 an icon.  If you change the stations you "care" about to something

else, then when your GPS memory gets full, you can simply delete

waypoint by symbol.  This lets me delete hundreds of icons at a time

while leaving my wife's car icon as a car.
