Hi Richard:
This is the kind of cable you might want: 
as you can see form the list of units it will work with, you have plenty 
of choice of GPS and that is just for the models that take this cable. I 
use a Garmin 60CS in the vehicle and it works well, depending where you 
put it. OK on the dash, not as good on low on the console but acceptable 
most of the time. BTW, pick a cable that not only connects between the 
GPS and the radio but also powers the GPS through the cigar lighter 
plug, unless you prefer paying for batteries or using rechargeables etc.

You could pick up a relatively inexpensive unit such as the Garmin III+ 
on eBay and at least have a display where stations received will show, 
not on a map (unless you want to invest in that but the map memory is 
extremely limited), but just on the monochrome screen.
