Interface into OnStar's GPS

The OnStar System is becoming more and more common as GM installs it by default in many of their vehicles. At the heart of this system is a GPS receiver, manufactured by Motorola, called the Oncore. Once you make a serial connection to this Oncore GPS, you can recieve real-time positioning information on your Laptop or PDA - In either Motorola's proprietary (but well documented) format, or in standard NMEA format.
In order to do this, you will need the following items:
A vehicle with OnStar
RS232-to-TTL Serial Level Converter
· Torx T-10 (star shaped) screwdriver/bit
· Solder Iron/Solder
· Screwdriver/Wire Stripper/Pliers, etc.
