Likewise with randy


I have 3 gps 18s and they work perfectly fine.


I also have the gps18 lvc which is the low voltage version and runs perfectly fine on 5 volts on an Arduino.

I have used Garmin GPS18 pucks with the DE9 Femail interface intended for connection to PC's directly into OT+ devices without concerns for levels.


They have worked without issue. 


If you hook a GPS18 up to a PC and verify that it is sending NMEA sentences at 4800 baud 8N1, then it will work correctly with an OT+, OTUSB, T2, or T3.


That has been my experience with the GPS18's that have the DE9 Female interface with OpenTracker devices. I have 4 GPS18's and have used them with many different OpenTracker devices as well as Byonics TT3's and Knwd APRS capable radios ( TM-D700, D7, D710, and D72 ). No additional level sense or polarity modifications were needed.
