Re: Looking for RAM Mount for GPS & Kenwood D700a

Rick Giguere <rick@...>
 

I used the free RAM mount that Kenwood was giving out at Dayton. I've
been very, very happy with it.

I only made one change .... instead of mounting the control head
to
the Kenwood-supplied bracket and then mounting the bracket on the RAM
mount plate, I drilled two additional holes on the plate that correspond
with the mounting screws on the control head and mounted the control head
directly to the RAM mount plate.

I intend to purchase a second RAM Mount to use for my Garmin GPS III+.

Looking for a GPS for my D700a or...help

William \ Hawk\ Bennett <nighthawk@...>
 

Hello,

I am sorry for cross-posting this question, but I would like to maximize the
possibility of getting an answer.

I have the Kenwood D700a & bought the necessary cables to attach my Magellan
Tracker to the radio (data/power cable with loose wires). I have been very
unsucessful getting the lines to match up & getting the items to "talk" to
each other.

The D700a has a DATA IN (from GPS-red), DATA OUT (to GPS-white), & GROUND
(shield).

The Magellan Tracker has a POWER (red), GROUND (black), NMEA+ (orange),
Data+ (yellow), Alarm (white)

No matter which I hook up, & configure the GPS, I can not get them to
"talk".

SO, the "real reasons" for this message:
How to get them to talk or
What inexpensive GPS will talk to the D700a sucessfully (tried & true)?


Mounting of control head

TOM BLACKWELL <radio@...>
 

Has anyone mounted the control head of a TMD700A on a goose neck?

Are there any preferences as to which goose neck to buy? Any plusses or minuses
for this kind of mounting?

Hello!

One thing I often do in these circumstances is insert a half dozen (or
whatever) diodes in series in the power input: assuming the appliance is
internally regulated, this does 2 things: bring the voltage range "more
safely" within the 16V or whatever, and reduces the heating up of the device,
by reducing the actual voltage on its input...

I also did this using the Rand McNally, although you can run the GPS
receiver on 13.8V without a problem. They have been tested to 16V without
issues. You'll need some velcro to keep the receiver from walking around
your dash or rear deck.

Send an APRS message to EMAIL; then in the message section put the
email address, two spaces, then the email.
i.e.
To: EMAIL
Msg: whoever@... This is a test of outgoing email on APRS.

Note, this will only work if you are inrange of an IGate

You can send an email with any APRS device by sending a message to
<callsign>-IM and the message will be delivered by email. If you send a

Just did this yesterday.
Bought the Rand McNally at Best Buy for $79 and they printed out a rebate
form for $20 at check-out, not a bad deal.
Since I did not wish to use the GPS with a laptop, I cut the bottom section
of the GPS cable off, leaving a single cable going to the GPS unit.

The R/M GPS Unit has 4 internal connections going to the cable with three
wires and a shield:

White Wire - Data Out (Connect to Red Wire on the Kenwood 2.5 mm GPS Jack)
Yellow Wire - Data In (Connect to White Wire on the Kenwood 2.5 mm GPS Jack)
Black Wire/Shield - Ground/Shield (Connect to Shield on the Kenwood 2.5 mm
GPS Jack)

Red Wire - 5VDC from PS/2 Port
Ground from PS/2 Port (Connect to Shield on the Kenwood 2.5 mm GPS Jack)


You will need to provide 5VDC to the Red wire that normally got it's voltage
from the PS2 port. I wired a 7805 voltage regulator to a lighter jack and it
got a bit warmer than I expected it would. It is now external to the jack on
a small heatsink while I figure out the next step. Maybe there is enough
room in the GPS unit for the regulator. In any case, it seems to work well
so far.

Re: Mods

Samuel Barker <srbarker@...>
 

To my recollection (it’s been a few months) the green wire only opens up the radio for MARS/CAP, but the resister opens the radio up for the  commercial bands.  Depending on what you want to accomplish, you’ll probably want to remove both.

 

As a side note, I’ve opened my radio up, and it performs very well.

Just ordered a TM-D700A, and was wondering what the proper mod is for
the extended transmit/receive range.  I've seen a couple on the net,
one requiring removing a resistor as well as the green wire, another
with just the wire.  What's the proper mod?

Tnx in advance.

Re: new D-700S model

hi all
i find it in some lists
Just to set the record straight and not let this rumor get out of
hand. Kenwood USA decided not to make the optional GPS available to
the general (US) market.
There are so many full featured GPS units available
and is difficult to compete. Kenwood felt that most US operators
would opt
for one of the available GPS units rather than to buy a Kenwood GPS.
NO
New versions of the TM-D700A units will be introduced other than what
is
available now.

Re: Rand Mcnally GPS

Jim Murray <james31@...>
 

Just did this yesterday.
Bought the Rand McNally at Best Buy for $79 and they printed out a rebate
form for $20 at check-out, not a bad deal.
Since I did not wish to use the GPS with a laptop, I cut the bottom section
of the GPS cable off, leaving a single cable going to the GPS unit.

The R/M GPS Unit has 4 internal connections going to the cable with three
wires and a shield:

White Wire - Data Out (Connect to Red Wire on the Kenwood 2.5 mm GPS Jack)
Yellow Wire - Data In (Connect to White Wire on the Kenwood 2.5 mm GPS Jack)
Black Wire/Shield - Ground/Shield (Connect to Shield on the Kenwood 2.5 mm
GPS Jack)

Red Wire - 5VDC from PS/2 Port
Ground from PS/2 Port (Connect to Shield on the Kenwood 2.5 mm GPS Jack)


You will need to provide 5VDC to the Red wire that normally got it's voltage
from the PS2 port. I wired a 7805 voltage regulator to a lighter jack and it
got a bit warmer than I expected it would. It is now external to the jack on
a small heatsink while I figure out the next step. Maybe there is enough
room in the GPS unit for the regulator. In any case, it seems to work well
so far.
