Looks like I'm going to get a Garmin 2720, I have an Ipod so what do I need and how do I hook them both up to the intercom system and so I can hear both through the headsets? Thanks

I thought that a 2720 didn't have an audio output connection.Kenona2002,
Probably the easiest/cheapest way would be to get an A/B switch from Radio Shack and connect it to the aux input. Hook both to the switch then select which ever one you want to listen to. The downside is that with the 2720 you will only get GPS info, no music.
The next option is to buy one of the Kennedy cell sets (or similar). They will incorporate your MP3 and GPS into the audio system (I don't have one so I don't know the particulars).
My preferred solution would be to spend a few dollars more on the GPS (2730). It plays MP3s, audio books and magazines, etc . It comes with the GXM30 XM radio antenna for XM radio and weather/traffic info.
I bought one on ebay for a "Buy-it-Now" price of $185 shipped. I saw another later that was $165. These are refirb units, but have a 1 yr Garmin warranty.
The difference in price of the 2720 and 2730 is probably still cheaper than buying one of the Kennedy cell sets or similar system.
In looking at the Garmin site the 2720 does not have an audio out jack. However the 2720 uses the same hardwire power cord as the 2610; the audio out jack is in the power cord. :thumbup:I thought that a 2720 didn't have an audio output connection.
