Help!

I have recently got a TM-D700e with a view to using the GPS on air.
However I find I dont understand the jargon in the handbook (must be
getting old or just a bit thick!). I have a Garmin street pilot (old
orange screen not colour) this has a four pin data socket on the
rear which I use for uploading maps to the gps from my pc and also in
the car to provide power from a seperate lead. I know I need a lead
to go from the rig to the GPS but not sure what pins are what or
indeed which is needed for power as I still need that as well!

As I said previously I dont understand the jargon in the handbook for
the rig so could do with some help to set up if some one can give it
to me in plain english!

I am also on APRS one the web and have that running ok but not with
the GPS connected.

Can anyone out there help me get this going please?

Many thanks

I can't help much as I'm not too much ahead of you... Lack of time, understanding, etc... I do know you will have to make your own cable, and the garmin ends are found here:
