I had the SPIII installed in my truck with a Kantronics TNC and Yaesu FT-150 and it worked like a charm.  The SPIII bit the dust and I would like to replace it with one of the newer Nuvi's.  I've been told I can use the 680 but what cabling do I need with the present configuration?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The latest Nuvi 2797 or the RV or Trucker versions are excellent, and larger than previous Nuvi's. In other words they are readable with "older eyes"

I don't know that they would support APRS - you'd have to check that for yourself -

Argent Data systems makes an adapter cable that will translate Garmin's Fleet Management Interface protocol to NMEA:

Check the web page to see what units output this protocol.

Another option is the Garmin Montana series.  They're more rugged than a Nuvi and have an NMEA serial interface (when used with the appropriate cable).
