Thanks for answer.
There is a new GPS from Garmin:
with 9m serial cable and 188.8.131.52 section says it handles CMOS serial output
levels 0 Vdc to 3.3 Vdc - looks like my case.
and also needs separate Input Voltage 8-33 Vdc
So would You say this is a better choice ? I can't see it on GPSD compatible
Generally I need device to put it on the roof of the bus, so it needs to be
waterproof and temp ranges from -10 to +50 Celsius.
However Garmin needs clear sky, and in urban environment there are tall
Could You recommend some device ? ;)
