Let's get the "Nav" part of this new area started!

I am looking for a color map GPS for my vehicle that also has a serial (RS232) interface NEMA output. It seems that all the nice color ones have usb :( . The output will be connected to a radio device not a computer so usb adapters would do no good. I would also like to keep it under $500.

How about a Garmin 60CX, has seperate USB & Serial ports, plus is an excellant hand held unit, and can be car mounted with an optional kit.

Manual is HERE, page 75 shows how to interface

~$370 from HERE


or HERE

edit: forgot to mention the $50 rebate.

Wow! Thanks that looks like it will fit my needs perfectly! I am going to see if I can find a store locally to get a feel of the size then order one :) It seems Garmin has gotten the message to keep NEMA output which was missing in some models.
