Re: D700 or D710?

I have the D710AG model and the GPS is built into the remote control head. As long as you stick it up on the dash or somewhere it has access to the GPS signal, there is no extra GPS antenna to install or mount.

I have both a TM-D700A (currently installed mobile) and a D710A (not yet installed).
Wire-wise, the 710 does not appear to be substantially different than the 700A,
If you buy the 710GA (or 710AG, whatever it is), with the built-in GPS, then would seem to simplify the GPS part of the installation. Rather than have to mount and run GPS wires separately, I guess you only have to place the rig's GPS antenna appropriately and then run the GPS antenna wire back to the main body.
Not having to fool with a separate GPS receiver would seem to be a plus.
Just my .02 worth.
