Re: D7 & RF only using APRSIS32
- Not to revive an old thread but trying to figure out if anybody has successfully run with a TM-D700 or TH-D7.
I have used a tablet PC with both radios using UI-View and would love to switch the mobile and portable units to APRSIS32. I personally tend to connect a seperate GPS receiver to the PC to input the data directly instead of passing it through the Kenwood though I can see where it would be useful to recieve it as well. Any chance support for the older 2 Kenwoods could be added in later versions of the software?
