Which GPS Units Are Compatible with MWM?

We have another division that has been trying to find a GPS unit that is compatible with MWM for quite some time now. The last time we asked which units were compatible we were told any unit that meets NMEA standards. They went out and found a unit that met said standards (according to the vendor that we purchased them through) but the GPS units failed to work with MWM.

The unit that our division uses is no longer manufactured. Which GPS units (& model numbers) are you all using that are also compatible with MWM?

Any assistance you can offer is greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately we don't publish a list of GPS units that are found to work well with MWM.
    The only way to know for sure is to get a free (or cheap) sample and to try it out.
    I know that Garmin tends to work well but is more expensive than the others.

    Look for ones that connect to a USB port and don't need a lot of supporting software except for
    (perhaps) the driver. The key here is to find one that is NMEA compatible and lets the USB
    query the GPS info directly from the device.

    Sorry I can't be more clear than that.
