    I found that post shortly after posting here. I just got so engrossed that I didn't come back here and make a note of that.

    I also found this post:

    OEM GPS Installs

    Which has EXACTLY what I was looking for as far as an OEM antenna. VWMike made a great post detailing what's needed. Speaking with him right now via email! Hope to have this stuff ordered in the very near future.

There's also Rockwell binary, Motorola binary, Trimble Standard Interface Protocol, etc. Most of the binary protocols allow for faster transmission and extra data, but require a bit more work to parse. See the list of vendor protocols here: http://gpsd.berlios.de/references.html
