This cable connects to a Fleet Management Interface (FMI) capable Garmin navigation system with a USB mini-B style plug, and provides an NMEA 0183 output stream for compatibility with automatic vehicle location (AVL) systems or other NMEA-compatible equipment. Supported models currently include:
- Garmin nüvi 300 series
- StreetPilot c340
- StreetPilot 7000 series
- StreetPilot 2820 series
- StreetPilot 2720 series
- zumo 400 series

Output is 4800 baud with GPRMC, GPGGA, and GPGLL sentences. The cable terminates in a 9-pin female D-sub connector. Waypoint input is accepted in GPWPL or PKWDWPL (Kenwood proprietary) format. Please note that only the nüvi 350 is so far known to display received waypoints properly - other models may display duplicates for moving stations, or no waypoints at all.
The GTRANS cable is not required for the Tracker2 or Tracker3 series trackers. For those devices, use the Garmin 010-10813-00 cable.
Overall length is 80" / 200 cm.
Please note that you must have the GPS receiver powered through its cradle for the cable to function. Power will not be provided to the translator cable if the unit is on battery power.
