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.

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.

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.

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.

To my knowledge, the Earthmate doesn’t have and option for standard NMEA output, which the D700 requires.  I know the Tripmate will work though….

Re: Two problems with wireless/ TNC Resets

DL2RUM <dl2rum@...>
 

I have the same problem. I've found out, that this will happen, when I 've
tuned to a digipeater and there is binary traffic on it.
When somebody is up- or downloading binary datas in the chanel no monitor or
dx - announcements catching is possible, due to the steady resets.
I have informed Kenwood Germany, but no response yet. (4 weeks)

Secondly, and this can happen whether I'm using UHF or not. The radio just
drops out of TNC mode, the TNC and BCON indicators vanish and the frequency
numerals change to being large as they do when the TNC is turned off. It
will stay like this for a few seconds and then it drops back into "Opening
TNC" mode, and is back to normal.

Has anyone else noticed anything like either of these, or got any ideas?

Thanks.

Keith, don't know how long you have had yours or where you got it, but I had
noisy tx audio and I called HRO (where I got it) and they sent me a new unit. So
far this one has performed as advertised. Still don't like the amber display. I
would strongly recommend that you try for a replacement. I have worked
electronics for about 45 years and seems like when you get a new rig that give
strange problems right away they remain dogs as long as they last Good lock

Re: DISPLAY

Samuel Barker <srbarker@...>
 

I think the big deal in the recent past was with the "cool blue" display
they put on the TM-V7. I know I had some problems with that one.

I have my control head mounted on the ceiling of my pickup, just above the
mirror mount (Toyota T-100) I do have problems reading the display from the
drivers seat, but it is due to the extreme angle that I'm viewing from.
It's really reflection from the plastic on the front panel that from the
display itself. When I've had it mounted in a more direct "line of sight"
position it's been great, except for the most direct sunlight, but even then
it's readable.
