[aprssig] D700 or D710 to Nuvi Waypoint Symbol Converter Module

It'll get position and velocity data from any Fleet Management Interface 
capable model that has the mini-USB style connector.  Electrically it'll 
work with the 18-pin type too, but I haven't made up any of those yet.

Waypoint display has so far only worked right on the nuvi 350.  The nuvi 
360 and a few others leave duplicates, and some just don't display 
anything at all.

Garmin *tried* to add a POI function to FMI v2, but screwed it up pretty 
badly.  On the 650, you can upload custom POIs ONCE, and then the file 
is locked until you connect a PC and delete it.

If and when they do it right, I'll add support for other models to the 
cable - the firmware is field-upgradeable, if you hook it up a a PC 
serial port.

Here are the FMI-capable models:
