That's the thing, I need real output from a real Garmin.  I wrote my own 
simulator for the Garmin protocol, but I need to know the actual 
floating point values that are coming out of the unit.

If simulators ever get down to $2000 or so, I'll have to pick one up, 
and I'll be happy to evaluate GPS receivers for balloon applications. 
Last time I checked, though, they were closer to $12,000.
