Given the interests of the list, I think that you can easily find a 
member who will swap a navigation receiver by your timing GT+. Or you 
can buy one from China in the usual site.  Cheaper than flashing yours 
at Synergy, I think.
I have a UT+ which fortunately outputs both formats, so I´m served.

Regards.
