Re: APRSIS Pass through GPS feed broken with Kenwood D710A

I emailed the XML file as well as my notes for how I installed the software. I recall being instructed to be sure to use the D710 APRS12 mode to maximize the ability for the transceiver to decode the packets and display information as well as the software to show the locations graphically. I don't know if this was from Julian Moss's video or from the yahoo groups messages. I will try to find the reference. I recall this working for a long time but sporadically and now not at all. Previously I would have to uninstall the software and reinstall using the above procedure to see my position and speed again and it would work for awhile and then stop working. I was never sure why this was happening. I sure would love to see a moving map display and have been trying on and off for a few years to get this running reliably and am not sure why I can't get it running consistently. I sure appreciate all of the hard work you have put into this and sure hope I can get my Jeep running consistently as several of the Dad's in our scout troop want to use this to track our vehicles on the overlanding campouts if we can get this working.

Please e-mail your APRSIS32.XML file to KJ4ERJ@.... Or dig into it and find your <Open/CloseCmd>s for that port. I suspect it isn't properly telling the D710 to send NMEA data out the serial port.
Are you running KISS (which doesn't support NMEA from the D710),
APRS (which I don't remember) or Packet (which I know does) mode
on your D710 port in APRSIS32?

I’ve confirmed the COM port settings are good. APRSIS32 opens the TNC properly and I can see all of the stations I hear post onto the map and into the scrolling list I see their call signs appear as I hear each packet arrive. Their position data and pacs are fine via RF. The only thing missing is my personal GPS feed. My speed and location are not passing from the transceiver to the software. It says I have no fix even when I do have a good fix. The speed doesn’t change and shows a dash even when I am moving. If I try to beacon It tells me it won’t beacon until I get a fix even though on the D710 itself my position and speed indicate the GPS is working properly. If I run APRS without using APRSis32 it works normally. I’ve tried now with the Bluetooth serial adapter removed to eliminate that variable Using the RT systems cable and it still doesn’t pass my GPS information to the software somehow ...
