Well at this point I have the sharp serial cable, a gender changer to female , then a db9 to rj45 then a rollover cable to the device. Any idea what /dev the serial device is? ttys0?
Either ttys0 or ttys1. I don't remember which; I've reflashed my ROM and haven't used my GPS with my Z6k since, so I don't have a config to look at. But, it's the same as an external serial GPS would be. You can just hook it up to a PC with Hyperterminal or whatever to test it out if you don't have a Cisco device lying around to test it on. (I do; I've got 3 2500's sitting around.)
The cables get kind of ridiculous... heh... I had to roll my own gender changer and null modem cables from spare parts around the house, and I ended up with this 20 foot Frankenstein's monster for a short time, till I broke down and went to Rat Shack.
