Any handheld capable of connecting to a USB cable or has nema 0183 connections will work. I use a garmin gpsmap76cs to feed data to the laptop.

Thanks! I didnt know that.

Just to be sure: Any of these Garmin 62 will work with OpenCPN? https://buy.garmin.com/en-GB/GB/GPSM...AND475-p1.html

The one I glanced at supports USB and 0183 data transfer. So you should be able to connect it to a laptop running Ocpn with a USB cable
