GARMIN GPS 16HVS

Receive this GPS just now from 9M2CJ.This GPS is from Australia and belong to our senior ham, Haji Rashid or well known as 9M2RS. I was surprise to see the real size of it,but we as 'hams' don't care so much about sizes,shapes and outlook.As long as it can work and give us satisfactory as we need, that is really good enough..

Factory fitted with RJ45 connector,to make it more compatible with our use,and with a permission of the owner (of course),i cut it.I connect it to DB9 Female connector..what i realize from this GPS is,it has 2 DATA Input and 2 DATA Output..wahh..this really good! One is primary and the other one is secondary....hmmm..Maybe can be use for Garmin Mobile PC while the other one is feeding data to our tracker....So we can't get lost anymore..ha..ha
Enjoy the pictures ..
