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.
