[aprssig] Best way to hookup Garmin 276c

I'm using the 276c (with City Select 7 too). Both serial ports (and 
power and voice) are in the same jack but and the USB is below it. You 
can download the manual from the Garmin website and have a look.

Your best bet is to use the supplied pigtail cable. I've got mine hooked 
into an unused switched circuit with external power on/off set. I 
canibalized a cheap PC speaker for the audio and am using COM2 for NMEA.
