    ... yes - but it has to be connected to the serial data port. NEMA will not work over the USB port - only Garmin-Garmin over USB

        Subject: [GarminGPSMAP60C_60CS] NMEA input to GPSMAP60CS

        Hi Everybody,
        I notice that one of the options in the Interface section of the setup
        menu is to have NMEA input active. Can the GPSMAP60CS be configured to
        accept NMEA from an external GPS? Does anyone here know what NMEA
        data/sentence can be fed into the GPSMAP60CS?
        Reason I'm asking is that I have access to an OmniStar DGPS receiver,
        it has no display of it's own, so I would like to feed it's position
        info into my Garmin.
        I'm going to give it a go and see what happens, but thought I would
        ask here as well.
        Regards,
        Michael.
