Post Icom 7100 D-Star & GPS
Hi all.
Lets see if anyone can help me out.
The Icom 7100 D-Star works fine for me.
I'm thinking of taking it out mobile in the near future.
It would be nice to be able to make use of the GPS
features that D-Star offers.
My question is,

What would the best GPS unit to attach to the radio?
(without spending silly money)

I do have an Etrex by Garmin, this worked fine on an old Kenwood 710.
But i'm guessing that the connecting cable i have is a different pin configuration than the Icom.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Happy new year and regards to all.

Hi,

I used an old Garmin GPS3 with my Kenwood Rado's and to use it with my Icom ID-880 and my IC-7100 all I had to do was swap the wires on the tip and ring of the 2.5mm plug to work with my ID-80 880 & IC7100.

See attached drawing as this might be similar to your Garmin GPS.

Cheers,
Mike G1ZRN.

After a considerable delay in getting round to sorting this out.
I have at last made my lead and now have gps on the ic-7100.
The Garmin Etrex works fine with the mod shown.
Many thanks Mike. (albeit delayed).
Regards.
