See the Tracker 2 www.argentdata.com  It is able to make use of the 
Nuvi's FMI. However, waypoint upload only works properly so far for the 
Nuvi 350. The other models create a new waypoint every time a station 
moves rather than updatiing the position. It is hoped that Garmin will 
provide an update for the other models.

I don't think there is any way of interfacing it with anything on the 
APRS scene other than the Tracker 2.
