            Hi Everyone, I just purchased a new Garmin 18 PC (serial) to do GPS with my
            996T. Just curious if anyone is using this model and what do I need to do
            to set it up for the scanner? The Garmin comes with a CD do I need to
            download the software to the GPS ? How do I set it up to work with the
            996? I'm using Vista on the laptop will this work? The paperwork says it
            is compatible with XP but doesn't say anything about Vista. Any help or
            advise would be greatly appreciated.

            Thanks,
            Frank
