For this project I'm using an OT3 with a Garmin GPS18 puck and Argent
splitter cable. From the reading I've done I understand I can't get a $GPGLL
stream out of the NUVI 350 setup I'm currently using in my van, so I can
change out the GPS receiver and put the 350 in my car instead.
Which tracker do you have? I'm planning to add that to the OTUSB and
T3, but I'm not sure there will be room on the T2 or older units.
