GPS strings in a KISS packet but give it a different port ID (like
MKISS), but then put in a CRLF just before the GPS string(s) so that
software which is looking for $GPGGA/$GPRMC at the beginning of a
string can find it. It'd be kind of like running an HSP port but
without the string corruption you get with HSP.

PicoPacket mode, after the Paccomm dual-port PicoPacket (which I
have one of somewhere) which first implemented it. Hmmm. Forgot I
even had that TNC... Might have to hook it to my HamHUD for a bit
to play, if I can still find it.
> How exactly is it supposed to behave?The computer sends a Control-E out the TNC port whenever it wants
the TNC to send it the GPS string(s). Otherwise the computer is
receiving packet strings from the TNC.
