   You're not going to have any luck with any of the "modern" mapping 
GPS's, except perhaps for aviation units.  The only new mapping GPS out 
there with NMEA input/output that I'm aware of is the Avmap G4T, and it 
has gotten some really poor reviews on other lists I'm on, like the D700 
list on Yahoo Groups.
