PS: Any word on any of the GPS units you used to sell with the OT-USB? Any available from anywhere? Was hoping to make my install a "Set it and Forget it" type like the Ronco Cooker ad says.
I've had good luck with the BR-355 modules. They're native NMEA RS-232. You just have to cut off the connector it comes with and wire your own 5v supply and DE9 as shown in one of the links below.

I've not included the pictured capacitor in any of my uses and have seen no ill effects. YMMV

PS. Make sure you get the BR-355 and not the similar model number that's USB!
