[aprssig] Scott's Nuvi Converter

Garmin's like the GPS 18 can run in simulator mode. I'm not sure if they
output the data in Garmin Binary when they run that way though.



Thank You,
Brian N2KGC

It's not NMEA that I need.  I already have an NMEA simulator, but this
unit takes Garmin binary data - and I need to be sure that there's not
some quirk in what's actually coming from the Garmin.
