I've hooked it up and demoed it with JD RTK. I unhooked an AGPS system and ran the GGA NEMA messages into the FMX. I used a dumb FMX (WAAS) with WM-Drain ($8000). I'm using this setup at a farm show right now sending GGA messages into the FMX from Lance Lefebure's GPS simulater program on my laptop.
I set the WM-Drain GPS receiver to Generic NEMA Receiver, Port A (ext GPS), 38400 baud rate or whatever you need to match the JD output, Parity to None, Data bits to 8 and Stop bits to 1.
Hook the Intellislope cable from the JD globe to your FMX port A using cable P/N 67091. That cable powers the globe and splits off to a serial connector to go to the Intellislope. I think you can also get a serial cable to hook to your GreenStar display with a serial connector.
You will be able to run WM-Drain with this setup. You will not be able to use the IMD-600 pitch sensor because that only works with the internal Trimble GPS receiver in the FMX.
