If Joel will be connecting it to a laptop in his truck, then the GPS18 USB
with the Garmin software would do the job. No matter what, I couldn't get it
installed on one laptop, but successfully installed it with another and it
did what it was supposed to do. If Joel wants to connect it up to something
like a TT3 or OT, the USB version would be out though.
