How does the Palm III/V unit communicate through the serial port? I
have a Magellan 310 which passes NMEA messages to a serial port.
Therefore, I can connect it to my palm with a hotsync cable and a
null modem adapter. I'd assume that the Palm version does the same as
the handheld versions. If so, your software would be compatable with
a variety of GPS handhelds.
