    The first result I got in Google says "First, it is a serial device (4800,8,n,1 with no flow control) so it does not require drivers to work, just a program that communicates across a RS-232 serial connection. "

    A number of other results suggest that a non standard string of "ASTRAL" needs to be sent to the unit to start it. I don't know anything about such units or whether standard software sends this string. Just rehashing what I read.

    Thanks, I'll look into it and let you know. What I need to find is the Tripmate Hack I've been reading so much about. I think its just to mod the unit so it sends ITSELF the Astral command, but I'm not sure yet. I'm still in the dark on the whole GPS thing

    Thanks again for the info
