I am talking about all the extra mass floating around, why not put a  
DIN Male on a short pigtail from the PCB and do away with the DB9M  
on  the board and the DB9F and DIN male on the adapter cable.

Actually If you sold the board without the DB9 on it just pads for me  
to solder the wires from the DeLuo I would buy a couple. I would take  
the DeLuo Wire down to where the other are ziptied and either add a  
zip tie or cut one of yours off and put another on to include  the  
GPS Wire and then heat shrink it.
