GPSBabel supports the Navilink protocol used by the Locosys GT-11 and GT-31 GPS receivers. These are sold under a variety of names including:

NaviGPSBGT-11Amaryllo
NaviGPS-BTGT-31 
GT-11BGT-31 

This format is used for both the serial protocol used on the USB link and for the files which can be copied from the internal memory to the SD card using recent firmware versions.

If you specify a serial port for the file (.e.g. "COM1", "/dev/ttyUSB0") to be read or written, GPSBabel will use the serial protocol. Specifying a file, either on local filesystem or on a mounted flash card reader, will results in the file-based format being used.

To access the device using the serial protocol over USB the device needs to be in Navilink mode, which can be activated from the main menu of the device.

Details of the Navilink serial protocol can be found here.
