I know I can using a Cig Plug extension cable for the CigB Plug of the Unit. But can I use an
DB9 extension cable can you extend the DB9 End of the Uniden GPS Unit.

If so, other than the cable what do I need to get.

Big thanks.

Normally you can use a "simple" DB9 extension cable with serial devices, but I would suggest you stick with a brand-name cable at a higher price, because sometimes the cheap cables will simply have too much internal voltage loss. "Too much" will vary depending on whether the device is using 5 volts, 12 volts, etc. as there are multiple standards. For the same reason, don't get the longest cable you can find, get "just enough".
