I've been looking at doing it as a project using this eval board:

including a case for a unit. Using the Eval board above, it would be nice to
have a case, DB-9 connector, and power supply. Alternatively, it would be
cool if they made a kit for the Garmin 16x using the schematic from here:




The 16x has an RJ-45 connector so that would simplify life for people using
