Does the TM-D710 have GPS receiver built in, or, does it require a separate GPS receiver connected via cable to the D710?

Hi,
     The TM-D710 does not have a GPS built into it,   the TM-D710GA does have a GPS built into it.    You can plug an external gps into both models.

Depends on the version of the 710 you have.  The 710 does not have built in GPS.  This You will have to use a hockey puck type.   Byonics.com has them at a reasonable price.  Green Heron Labs used to sell a GPS that attached to the control head.  There also was a ham that sold a GPS to attach to the head.  The last option is to purchase a GPS module and install it in the Control head.  Directions are on the web.  

The 710G has  a GPS built into the control head.

Wow, I figured it out.  Occam's Razor applied to Murphy's Law.  So I said to myself, "It's the cable stupid! "  Sure enough, using a new cable resolved the issue.  I can only assume that hardware flow control was shot and the data flow overran the buffer. I could not test the theory  as the lowest baud available was 9600 at the computer. So, this issue was a bad cable .Both cables we're FTDI, same driver.   Thanks for the input!

Tm-d710g manual query

bobsayers2000
 

Hi, All, 

I'm returning to APRS again after a break of a few years and trying to get to grips again with the amazing range of features and commands of the 710.

I'm doubtful if I shall use Packet again (any input from UK hams on the level of activity would be very useful) but am trying to understand an anomaly in the documentation.

Page 39 of the "basic" manual shows a serial cable connected from the PC port on the main radio unit to the serial port of a PC.

However, page PACKET-1 of the more detailed manual says "do not connect a computer to the PC terminal of the TX/RX unit" .

Or does this latter sentence mean not to connect in this way when there is also a connection to the PC from the DATA port to the PC?

Best regards, 

Bob, G8IYK

I found out that to get the computer to work with the Radio, you don't connect the cable to the back of the radio.  You connect the Din connector to the back of the control head.  I saw a Youtube video before I did anything.   Having never read the manual, I had my radio working both Packet Radio and Winlink in about 10 minutes from setup.  I would have been pissed had I not seen this.  I haven't tried the back of my radio myself, because once it's working why bother.

Re: FOR SALE

 

The TMD-700A (G) DOES NOT have internal GPS as in the 710G, it has a port for a GPS to be attached! Any GPS with NEMA output with work! I have several Garmin and another company that work great! My favorites are the  276C and 478C! When using a small handheld GPS, I use my laptop to see what's going on!

Keyboard with D-710G

bobsayers2000
 

Looking back through Messages I can see that a number of people have enquired over some years about the availability of a keyboard to use with the 710, and have always been advised that this third-party accessory was only ever available for the 700.

Were such an accessory be available for the 710, I wonder what the level of interest would be? 

Would someone who still owns and uses the original 700 model be able to provide any information on the manufacturer or distributor? 

Best regards, 


Bob, G8IYK

APRS and GPS

bobsayers2000
 

The GPS navigation message contains date and time information in the form of a sequential week and seconds counter, which first started on 6th January 1980. As the week counter rolls over every 1024 weeks, it will do so on 6th April 2019 for the second time in history.
 
Systems using GPS for obtaining date and time are required to ensure that a correct progressive week count is maintained.
 
EASA has issued a bulletin on the subject which you can find here.

It took a bit of searching my old email records, appears I picked up one of the these kits back in 2012 for my 700 go kit:


W2FS still has a web site up:  http://coastalchip.com/

But nothing there about his old 700 keyboard interface kit.  Too bad, it's compact and works great.  I'm far from my house and rigs for the next several months or I'd offer at least a photo of the PCB, perhaps he might be persuaded to at least share the schematic if one asks nicely?

Thanks very much for that, Mark. It's a pity, he has some nice, and obviously fairly recently introduced, products on there, but the site certainly seems designed to avoid contact with potential purchasers!

I'm on the case, though, and will try and make contact by other means. 

Many thanks,
