Someone here gave a hack to use the negative output of the RS422.
That works nicely with a HAMA USB to RS232 cable. For the pinout
converter I simply cut off the cable from an old Logitech mouse.
Then half of the work is already done. Just solder the plug to
the Lucent.

Does that mean there is new supply? I did my best to dry up
the last wave of non GPS units :-)
