Bought this for our truck's APRS ham radio. Selected this model for ease of connection, wired a db9 plug to a 1/8" stereo plug and connected the GPS 18PC to the Kenwood TM-D710a radio.

Turned on GPS fx in radio and bingo! GPS icon started flashing in corner of radio's faceplate and we're sending packets with our location data.

We decided to try it on the dash instead of rooftop for two reasons. The cable was just a little short to extend out to the roof and provide me the inside routing I wanted. And, our Garmin Nuvi has always worked from the dash without any problems. Sure enough, the GPS 18 PC has worked perfectly for two weeks sending location info to our ham radio.

We dissected the cigarette lighter plug and removed the spring and button, replaced them with a pair of wires to an Andersen power-pole connector. This maintains the 5.7 volts to the gps 18, and allows us to plug into the switched accessory supply we added to the truck.

This Garmin gps looks nice, does everything it's supposed to. No surprises, no problems, works perfectly for the job.

Works fine, but be warned that the cigarette lighter plug contains a voltage step down converter that converts 12v to 5v. So you can't just cut off the end and hook it into a mobile installation.

I took the adapter apart and re-housed it. Now I've got mine hooked up to an ignition switched power source so I can use it to report GPS data with out draining the battery.

This is a great unit. Not many GPS receivers still come with a serial port, most have converted to USB. I needed a GPS receiver that would connect directly to a serial port and the Garmin unit was the best value for the price. It typically locks up on a satellite fix in 30 seconds or less from a cold start. I am using the receiver in my vehicle and it tracks perfectly, even in metro areas with building obstructions. I would definitely recommend the Garmin receiver to anyone who needs an inexpensive GPS solution with serial port connectivity.

I bought this to go with my Uniden Bearcat BCD996XT to enable the GPS area frequency switching features. It hooks up easily and worked immediately, acquiring satellite very quickly and in adverse conditions. for this purpose I'd highly reccomend it!

I bought this unit to hook it up to my Kenwood TM-D700a to use as GPS recever
for APRS. The main thing is the separate serial connection and power which already
includes all the components to convert 12V into 5V. All one needs to do is rig up
a connector to the rig and off you go with APRS on the D700a. As usual cables could
be a bit longer but other than that, works just fine.

I've had 2 of these units and they last just about one and a half years. Not well made I'm sorry to say.

I was able to do the repair myself. Loose connection inside of unit. Its ok now.

Didnt get em from Amazon, but they do the trick. The serial port way is a bit dated...but its what our systems needed.
If you connect these to your PC, and the mouse starts jumping around- unplug the gps power and it will come back- go to device manager, mice and ponting devices- it shows up in there as Microsoft serial ballpoint. disable this and plug it back in- should work.

Just so it's clear, this isn't a standalone GPS unit. It sends GPS location data via a serial interface to other devices that can accept data in NMEA 0183 format. I use this with my Uniden BCD99XT scanner. It works. I have the GPS antenna inside the car under the front windshield and I have never had a problem acquiring location and GPS data in less than a minute regardless of weather, location, etc. So simply put, it works exactly as you would expect. Just make sure that whatever device you are connecting it to works with NMEA 0183 format which this outputs.
