    Do you mean the wire like the one in the attached pic, or are you talking about a different wire?

    That link to the antenna isn't really pointing to an antenna, it's an integrated antenna/revceiver from garmin, which comes in different flavors (USB/Serial/TTL)...

    sure it wasn't this one: http://www.gpscity.com/item-garmin-g...enna/ga27c.htm

    Intella:
    From what I can tell you only use 4 of the 8 wires that come off the 15L, right? 2 for power that I'll be getting off usb pins, and 2 going into the COM port 2. Is that correct, and if so, what are the other wires for? I will be (hopefully) installing this tomorrow if I can find something to use to connect the wires to the pins. Any suggestions would be great.
    Thanks again for the excellent writeup (which should really be a sticky so more people will know about the OEM route).
    Cheers.
