Re: Multiple NMEA output

Samuel Barker <srbarker@...>

I've done this with a Garmin GPS 35, and it works fine.  I have the gps wired to my D700, and a DB9 spliced off from that (or is the radio connector spliced from the DB9?  Either way).  I run a Topo mapping program on a laptop, and APRS through the D700 simultaneously.

Subject: [TMD700A] Multiple NMEA output

I have this idea that I might like to use my Garmin GPS III+ so that
I can use it with both my D700 and very occasionally with a laptop
running Map 'n' Go.  The book with the GPS III+ indicates that it
will drive up to 3 NMEA devices simultaneously. I am thinking of
splicing the seriel cable such that I could leave the cable hooked to
my D700 all of the time and attach a serial cable to my serial port
on my PC when I want to use it for navigation.

My question is this -- Has anyone else done this?  Can anyone think
of a reason that it won't work?
