    What is the end project?

    I've got one you can have, output is TTL level..  I'll check the specs when I find it, if it will accept 5v.  It may be 3.3 only.

    I believe one has a SiRF III chipset, same as one of the ones you listed.

    If that will work for you, I'll take a look for them (I have more than one).

    Hi Keven

    An Alinco DJ 580 and Tiny Track 3 plus were donated to CARA a while back.  Was thinking it could be used to provide a aprs beacon for club station or comm trailer.    Seems to be missing the   GPS unit. that would plug into the DB9 connector.

    Personally, I would just cut the end off and wire it myself. (Black - Ground, Red - 5V, Green - Tx)
