      For those that know the Kenwood command set, here's what KWD700(RO+GPS)

      <OpenCmd>LOC E 0</OpenCmd>
      <OpenCmd>LTMON 5</OpenCmd>
      <OpenCmd>LTMHEAD OFF</OpenCmd>
      <OpenCmd>GPSTEXT $GPRMC</OpenCmd>
      <OpenCmd>XFLOW OFF</OpenCmd>

      You can try these with a terminal emulator connected to the D700 and see
      what you get. It'd be good if you had a GPS actually connected and are
      also receiving APRS packets for this test!
