"So I guess my concern is the dearth of *low-cost* display handheld GPSs with RS-232 data out." 

I'm looking at making a SirfIII GPS receiver with serial NMEA output. We 
use a SirfIII GPS receiver in our Digi Tracker and I've had several 
enquiries from users of the Kenwood radios looking for a serial 
receiver. Target price would be $70 to 80.

A question to the group...would a 12V powered GPS receiver be OK or 
would it need a battery power option?
