APRSISCE mobile installation

Has anyone in here set up mobile operations with APRSISCE?

Radio would be a D-700, and if possible, I’d like to use my Microsoft GPS receiver/antenna.

Do you actually have a Windows Mobile device, or did you mean to say APRSIS32 on Windows?

What exactly is a "Microsoft GPS receiver/antenna"?  Does it hook to your D-700?  Or does it deliver NMEA GPS strings to windows via a COM port?  if it is USB-only without an NMEA capability, it won't help.

And yes, the D-700 can be easily interfaced to.  See also:

No. I want to run the program on a laptop running standard Windows in my vehicle.

It’s a rebranded Pharos GPS-360. It interfaces with the computer rather than directly to the radio. The device also has USB-Serial and identifies to the computer as a COM port.

I have a few of those, and they originally ran with Streets and Trips, but then with APRSPoint for APRS use.
