I am looking for a GPS unit that I can install in my vehicle for use with a Kenwood TM-D700.  What I am looking for is something like a Trimble unit that would get installed in a trunk or under a seat and have an antenna mounted on the roof.  I am not looking for a GPSIII or anything that I need to look at.  I sort of want to install it and forget it is there.  I have a Navman/IPAQ when I want to look at a pretty interface.  Can anyone recommend a unit that can easily accomplish this?

Most of the mid/lower end Garmin units seem to have a power/data port on them and come with a PC cable (DB9 female connector).  I use a Garmin GPS-76.  About $200 and has the power/data port and an MCX-type external antenna connection.  I'm not sure if the low end Garmin e-Trex series has the power/data port.  Some people try to get a hold of a (now-defunct) Delorme Tripmate for a simple GPS receiver for mobile APRS.
