NO! The Nuvi 350 is the ONLY garmin display GPS that does everything that the Tracker2 family of TNCs expect it to do. All others will either not display station icons or will display a bread-crumb trail behind moving stations with clones of the objects.
This particular installation (KJ4OVQ-9) is in my wife's van (she's KJ4OVQ) and she doesn't care about the station visibility, but we use the messaging. I'm hoping that the messaging will work and I plan to tell the Tracker2 to not pass any station information along to the GPS.
At least, that's my understanding of the Garmin Nuvi FMI situation...

Are you guys implying that the 1490 can do what I see everybody talking about with the 350 series nuvis? I have a 1490 in my vehicle and would prefer to keep the traffic functionality. I have a Kenwood TM-D710A radio and am using a cobbled-together GPS18x setup right now to feed it, but if I could use a cable with my 1490, not only would that give me a display screen, but I'd also have one less device to power off my car's 12V circuit.
I actually have one of those GreenLight Labs GPS-710s on its way to me to replace the GPS18x. Could I use it in concert with the 1490 with a fleet management kit, or would that be overkill?

I ordered this cable (along with a back-ordered one with Traffic) from
another company about a week before you announced that you have them.
They took this long to get it delivered and they say yet another 3 weeks
before I'll see the other one.
Thanks for the info!
