• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Magellan SporTrak Color ?????????????????????? ANYONE NO THANKS

GPS units known and tested to work with the scanner includes:

Delorme Tripmate (with modification for autostart)
GARMIN eTreX
GARMIN eTreX Legend
GARMIN eMap
GARMIN Rino110
GARMIN GPS18PC
GARMIN 12XL
GARMIN GPSmap 60CS
Lowrance iFinder GO2
MAGELLAN Meridian Marine
Uniden Mystic
The above list is not all-inclusive. Basically any GPS that outputs serial NMEA standard data should work with the scanner. As other units are used and confirmed to work, this section should be updated to include the other models. GPS units that only have a USB connection will not work with the scanner (well, it is possible that some units could be internally modified to work, but we're talking off-the-shelf, here).

The scanner understands the sentences GGA (Global Positioning System Fix Data) and RMC (Recommended Minimum Specific GNSS Data) based on “NMEA-0183 ver.3.01”.
