Re: [NTLK] GPS on 2000 or 2100?

I use a 2000 upgraded to 2100. But, the only other person I know of that
actually uses GPSMap, is using an MP120. So either 2000 or 2100 will be more
than adequate. I use a Garmin ForeTrex 101. For a cable, I use bits and
pieces of old cables I had laying around. But once I figure out how I want
to carry this setup, I will be making a custom cable. At that time I will
post pin outs for the Garmin ForeTrex line.

Does it make more sense to do a GPS solution with a 2100 (because it has
more Heap) or a 2000 (because a 2100 is overkill for GPS)? Assume the
MessagePad is basically just doing GPS and Notes, no NewtWorks or a lot of
other Extras.
(*) Bonus - what GPS device and serial connector are you using these days?
