Is the -12 used for anything other than driving the RS-232 signals?  I expect 
that would work with almost anything.

ntp has a refclock module that talks to some Trimble units.  Looks like gpsd 
has Trimble support too.  I don't know if they talk to this particular model, 
but there is at least some readily available code to look at if anybody wants 
to write their own.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
