Yes...sorta. I have a Garmin nuvi 1450 which was a 2011 model, I 
believe. I've used it with a GTRANS2 cable from Argent Data which 
provides NMEA0183 data over RS-232 via a DB-9 connector. Note, that's 
GTRANS2. It's not listed in the Argent Data store, but Scott can 
provide it on request. The newer nuvis get their power through the 
mini-USB connector, so the GTRANS2 has a pigtail for 12VDC power.
