1)    From the page linked above:

"This version of the GPS 18x includes a cigarette lighter adapter and a 3.5mm 
plug that allows it to be connected directly to the Kenwood TM-D700, TM-D710, 
TH-D7, and TH-D72 radios. The data cable is approximately 15 feet (5 meters) in 
length. "

The Kenwoods need a  2.5mm plug!   Or is this a typo?

2)    What would a scanner do with a GPS?
