nooo...

it's also used as an interface to the TNC. yes the rs232 port is also used for programming, but I have my laptop here running my mapping software and also uiview.

I use the "data" port (the 6 pin thing) for sstv and so forth.

The TMD700A is serial only. No USB.

However, you can use a USB to serial adapater and a regular 9 pin serial
cable to talk to it.
USB to serial adapters cost about $20 and have many other uses other
than the radio. I've done this to hook up my laptop to the 700 (which
is mounted under the drivers seat in my car) to program it.

Re: USB Data Cable

Randy Allen
 

The short answer is no. The D700 was not designed to work as a USB device.

You can get Serial to USB converters, but they are flaky in that what works with one device on one persons computer might be totally non functional on yours. It's a matter of trial and error.

What I did on my shack machine was to move my old Palm onto a USB to Serial converter and it worked fine. Using the same cable and trying to run PSK with it caused my TS-820 to start transmitting as soon as the cable was plugged in.

Good luck.

General install advice from an (now EX) Motorola installer who
has worked
on various covert and overt law enforcement, undercover and
emergency
response vehicles.


Rule #1 Find a location of your closest power distribution module
with
sufficient capacity -- in modern SUV's and crossovers, these may
be under
rear trim panels, under the rear seating arrangements, or under
the spare
tire well if it is stored in-vehicle. Not every vehicle has
these, but
it'll save you from running all the way to the battery if it's
more
convenient to install the radio's RF deck elsewhere (See notes
about making
custom cables for these radios).

Rule #2 If you paid close attention to rule #1 and do NOT need to
go
through the firewall, whichever side gives you the 'easiest' run
to your
destination will work (typically passengers side due to lack of
entanglement
with driver controls and vehicular wiring). FIND A GROMMET IN
THE FIREWALL
WHICH YOU CAN PASS CABLES THROUGH BEFORE MAKING ANY PERMANENT
INSTALLATION
PLANS! Common cheats:
- Find a factory grommet for a clutch master cylinder (if it was
offered in
your model).
- Look for plugs both through the front of the vehicle AND UNDER
THE DASH!
Remeber - you can not see the bottom portion of the firewall
from 'up top'.
- ALWAYS seal the hole with silicone. Typical household variety
dollar-a-tube dries clear type works just fine. Buy a caulking
gun for a
few bucks, after your friends see this you'll be doing many more
installs!

Rule #3 -- Figure out how to 'get here' from there. It may sound
dumb, but
it's very true. Many vehicles are 'snap together' trim pieces.
Gently pry
starting at one side and working your way to the other. If it's
not coming
loose, don't force it -- try from another point on the panel.
Generally
speaking, snap clips are 30 cents a piece and can be obtained at
the
dealership or generic replacements at the auto stores.

I suggest you invest in a cheap pry tool ("Trim removal tool")
at your
local bargain basement tool store (harbor freight is good).
Remove all the
trim panels that you feel comfortable removing up and down the
side of the
vehicle of your preference.

Professionally this is the tool i used the most! :
http://www.tessco.com/products/displayProductInfo.do?
sku=52983&eventPage=1
Note: You can use many other tools -- flat blade screwdrivers,
pry bars,
etc. Wrap a plastic grocery bag around the tool when prying to
avoid
scratching painted surfaces.

Rule #4

If possible, get some split loom (convoluted plastic tubing) for
your
wiring. While this may make some things bulkier, if your running
your
control cable under carpet, it'll prevent all the chafing and
abrasion which
will eventually be its demise. Do not run split loom through a
grommet --
cut it on each side, silicone it, and then re-attach after the
silicone
cures. Saves nitemares when moving cables around!

Rule #5

BE CONCIOUS OF SAFETY SYSTEMS! By all means, READ THE FRIGGIN
OWNERS
MANUAL! I have had law enforcement (local, state, and FEDERAL)
request
installation in places that would be FATAL if the airbags
deployed. Be
concious of the frontal, side impact (sides of the seat usually)
and side
curtain 'canopy' air bags in modern vehicles. All of these
deployment zones
are laid out in your owners manual. Bear in mind that the impact
may jostle
the control head free, so be sure to strain relief the control
cable
somewhere (zip tie it to something a few feet back, but leave a
little
'slack' room so you can adjust it and remove it without
struggling).

DO NOT TAMPER WITH ANY YELLOW COATED WIRES, SPLIT LOOM, TAPE,
ETC. - THIS
IS THE INTERNATIONAL SAFETY CODE FOR AIR BAG ELECTRONICS.

Rule #6

Keep your RF cables away from any telemetry systems on board.
IE: On board
GPS, Sirrius, XM, Onstar... as well as any supplemental control
systems
(yaw control; ie: Electronic stability control, traction assist,
etc. your
owners manual can help you out there -- not all traction control
systems are
yaw based, but yaw based systems are electromagnetically
sensitive.

Rule #7

TAKE YOUR TIME, DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME, AND BE PROUD OF WHAT
YOU'VE
DONE. It's not easy working with the confines of modern
automobiles, but
hopefully this bit of advice can help each and every one of you.

Feel free to contact me if you need more info or insight...

Make sure nothing else is using that port. I had similar problems on a
laptop when I figured out that my Palm Hotsync software had grabbed the
port even when it was not syncing up. I exited that software and
everything started working.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
