      can lead you in the right direction. I have just ordered a custom cable
      from them that goes between the 700\7 and the Garmin 18PC.

        I think that you're out of luck on that. The Nuvi only has a USB
        interface and the D700 expects to be connected to a GPS that has a
        serial port.

        If you find anyone that has a device that will allow the use of a USB
        peripheral with another device that wants to connect to a serial
        peripheral let us all know. If such a thing exists it will have to
        have its own built in CPU to do the conversion. If you search for a
        serial to USB interface you will likely only find the other interface
        that allows a computer with a USB port to connect to a standard serial
        peripheral.

        I too want to get a Nuvi 350 but will have to get another GPS with a
        standard serial port to connect to my D700.

        Good luck,

          Thank you everyone for your input, as most of you know
          and I found out there's no way to link a Garmin Nuvi 350
          with a D700A. I have a eTrex with a cable already so I'll
          just I'll keep using it. No matter I did go ahead and get
          myself the Garmin Nuvi 350 at a great price, very cool GPS
          unit by far much better then a AvMap G4T and a lot cheaper
          on the pocket. Just wish Kenwood would like a way to link
          a USB with the D700A. We have two newer laptops and a new
          desktop and none of them have serial peripheral ports.

            Thank You for contacting Garmin International,

            I will be happy to assist you with this. The Nuvi 350 and in fact the
            entire Nuvi line are strictly automotive units and consequently do not
            have
            a NMEA output capability. In fact the units will not output any
            position
            data at all.

            If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.

              Having said that, I have heard rumour that someone has found a way to
              get a NMEA feed from the 2610. I opted for the 18PC instead to get my feed.
