Default Whats needed for GPS Scanning

In preparation for the release of the new scanners, I am doing a little research. This will be my first GPS capable scanner. What is needed. Looking at the wiki, I see several different things. Is this all that is needed?: Serial GPS Receiver for Scanner and Marine Products - Accessories at Uniden

That is all you need (although there are other possible solutions).

bookmaked. Thanks. Just thought maybe you were hinting at something to come.

By the way, I can't wait to have the BCD536HP in my hands. Thank you for all the help.

GPS capable scanner, a GPS with a serial output........ and sometimes a custom fabricated cable.

I've used a couple of Garmin units along with the Uniden GPS unit. Probably the most important thing to consider if you choose something other than the Uniden GPS, is a means to keep it charged while travelling. The Garmin units I had operated with batteries that did not last as long as my trip.

If your plans are only for scanner applications, I'd suggest the Uniden GPS. If you do other things, such as hunting/hiking/boating and would use the GPS for that, then the Uniden won't do you much good.

Also, keep in mind that some Garmin Nuvis can be used with an Argent Data cable. That will allow you to use one GPS for BOTH vehicle navigation and feeding data to the Uniden scanner.
