Re: ftm-350 without GPS

Does it support GPS In and APRS out as independent settings?  My suspicion is that it's an either/or mode, not a both/and.

Eventually I may put in some sort of GPS passthrough, but there's virtual serial drivers out there that will do that also with no modifications of my code, although there may be port sharing issues with that approach.  The only platform I see this being useful on is Windows Mobile where I can take the internal GPSapi feed and generate NMEA output.

The radio does support GPS in via the serial link with newer firmware.  But you did answer my question.  Is there any plans on supporting GPS out to radios?

If you're asking for the GPS information to flow along the existing
serial cable to the FTM-350, I don't believe the radio supports that.
The FTM-350 is, IMHO, a very closed platform. We're lucky to be able to
get the decoded APRS packets out of it!

Besides, currently APRSISCE/32 doesn't provide any GPS data output.
