If you want a map, the Garmin GPSmap 176C and 276C work well. I just
picked up a 176C on eBay for about $200.
If you don't need a display, see http://www.rpc-electronics.com for
Deluo GPS receivers and adapters. I carry the receivers myself, but not
the D700 adapter. For whatever reason, Kenwood didn't include power on
the GPS connector and you've got to have an external power source.
