One key question for your friend is: Does he want a unit that is good 
for car navigation, or a "normal" outdoor version? There aren't that 
many choices that are designed primarily for car navigation and also 
have an NMEA 0183 output. But if an outdoor model is what he wants, 
there's still a pretty good selection of GPS-receivers available that 
come equipped with a serial port.
