I would think it should work.  Check at Garmin.com to see that it
outputs NMEA sentences on the RS-232 connector.

You might also want to look at the Deluo Serial GPS.  That would
give you the GPS module _and_ and antenna for around the same price.
Check the voltage input requirements carefully though.
