Hi Ben

 

Do you think this one will do the trick

 

Data Cable (Mini B to Serial Pigtail) Garmin Part Number: 010-10813-00

I think maybe this one is too simple.

 

Thanks

Robin

Dave,

 

My vote goes to the Nuvi 350 and argent data systems cable for the Kenwood TM-D700A. I have a Wordpress article on that setup in case you have any trouble with it. Those Nuiv’s should be fairly cheap these days and gives a good display of other stations around you, if you need a display. There are other Garmin units that use the same fleet management cable conversion for the GPS. There is a link on that article to the Argent Data Systems cable and nice folks, written to them about a couple other devices. If you do not need the display, I recently used the BR-355S4 for a GPS. I used it for my IC-7100, but checked it out with the Kenwood also. Took a couple other cables/adapters, used a USB to old mouse adaptor PS2 connecter to power the GlobalSat BR-355S4 and a 2.5mm cable to the pins 3 & 2 and 7 for the ground.

I agree with the Nuvi350 and the Argent cable. Any unit that "talks NMEA" will work - I started out with a Garmin eTrek. The Nuvi350 is available on eBay, etc., as well as lifetime maps. Garmin hesitated to register a used one to me until they verified it was not stolen. They will accept a memory card and feed MP3 to your car sound. The navigation instructions mute the music so you don't hear both.

My next choice would be an AvMap unit but they are much more expensive.

You're gonna enjoy that D700. I have two of them in vehicles.

I use a Byonics GPS II  Had to make a cable to adapt the db32 connector to the radio, and feed it 5 volts. The db32 plastic housing cover from Radio Shack is perfect size to hide a LM7205 voltage regulator with no heat sink needed. Surprised me, worked first time I plugged it in.

You can certainly try it. After all, experimentation is a key part of our hobby.

I don't think you are going to find "trouble", as long as you take reasonable precautions.

Please, if you do try it out, let us know how it works.

Can I do this or am I just looking for Trouble?

Congrats, Steve

  If you have Excel 97 or later, I recommend you try my Excel workbook for programming the D700. Link to my site below.

  It is easier to use than the Kenwood program.  All memories are on one sheet it and each memory is on one line; italso does some real  time control and reads and saves all menus as well as all the "PM"s (the Kenwood program only saves the active PM).  The memory sheet has some things to meke entries easer such as autocompleting CTCSS frequencies (just enter 107 and the decimal value fills in for you). 

  You also have Exce's normal Copy and Paste to rearrange things easily.

  There is only one data cable and it does not come with the radio.  It is a standard "straight-through" (NOT Null modem) DE-9 RS-232 serial cable.

Re: Just acquired a D700

Hi Steve,
 
For programming via computer you will need a serial cable, I think it's RS232 (Not sure on that though), It's several years since I purchased in. Do make sure you get a straight through cable, Not a crossover.  If your computer or laptop only has USB connectors you will need a USB to serial converter to make the connectio to the data cable.  These can sometimes be a pain in the ass to source, why I don't know.  I obtained one from Maplins in the UK, although that isn't much use to you I know.  If you do need to obtain one of these have a look at USB Gear in Clearwater FL, they have a good selection of this type of thing.  www.usbgear.com/USB-Serial.html  I think the cost is around $12  so it's not going to break the bank.

Morning

I would scroll through and look at what is in the channel banks and the radio settings, write down what you can you then do a reset

D700 cables are different then D710.

The D700 I have I made the cable out of CAT5 cable and put the correct ends on it

If the gray matter is working this morning it is a 8 pin and 6 pin RG type plug

Re: Just acquired a D700

Hi Steve,

I had the same issue when I got my d700. First thing I had to do when I made my cables, just because my eyes are not that good anymore, was replace the fuse inside the radio. I crossed two wires. I have a few spare fuses just in case you make your own. I would purchase them, if you can find them. The biggest problem making your own is the ground wire is not sheilded and any loose strand can cause issues, like a blown fuse which is surface mount by the way.
Second thing I would do is go to the Kenwood site:
http://www.kenwood.com/i/products/info/amateur/tmd700a_700e_soft.html
and download this free program. Once you have power to the radio and a programming cable with a gender bender you can retrieve all the info and make an image of it. Chirp works as well but you can't program the APRS info with it, just the memories.
Third, have fun. This radio by far is the most fun I have had while mobile. I am just adding a nuvi350 so I can track data and stations on the go.
Enjoy
Ken

Re: Just acquired a D700

1) A reset depends on you - did the previous owner have some repeaters in memory that you might want?
2) Cables other than power are not the same. You can make them up. Check the files in this group.
3)You might try PacParts http://www.pacparts.com/. Search eBay - someone lists a 3 cable set, another lists a serial cable for programming, etc. You will need a gender changer with a generic serial cable. If your computer does not have a serial port, finding a usb converter can be (was for me) a problem. I finally found one that would work with both my D700 and D7 at Fry's: PPA Int'l Item#3312 made in China, of course, UPC 8 33250 00331 2. I am sure there are others.

My radio (my TMD700a) has a tendency of its volume to get louder and louder until its at highest volume without me touching the radio.

How do I fix it or where do I send it to get fixed. It's been replaced by a Yaesu FT-350r, yet I would love to get my TMD-750 back in action!!!
