[aprssig] TH-D7 and Megellan Meridian Color...

After our local club meeting last week I had a gent ask me to help him 
set up his GPS to work on his D7. I tried some combinations of the setup 
to no avail. I didn't spend too much time on it because it was snowing 
that evening and I wanted to get home before it got worse. I told him 
I'd do some further research, but I'm not coming up with much. Perhaps 
there is someone else out there with this setup:

* Kenwood TH-D7
    - NMEA96
* Megellan Meridian Color GPS
    - NMEA Options:
       o v1.5 APA
       o v1.5 XTE
       o v2.1 GSA
    - Speed
       o 9600

Which one of the NMEA should I use? Since he is using a gender bender 
between the radio and GPS, I'm not sure if his serial cable is correct 
either. I'm hoping to be able to at least have the correct options 
selected before looking at his serial cable. Or is this GPS incompatible 
with the D7?

Thank you!
