ok i must be dumb
- ok i got the tracker2 working AGAIN. anyways, now i cant seem to get messages onto the 350. i try to send aprs message from the findu site but cant get them. Do the messages have to be sent direct or can they be sent over the network? i'm using k7cdl-14 thanks for any help you all can be. yes i can send commands to the tracker2 from the nuvi350 and get something back.

I see messages from N7HRI-9 to you being sent directly over the
APRS-IS. As has been discussed here many times, for that concept to
work, the local i-gate must be configured to take messages from the
APRS-IS and deliver them to the local RF network.
Get N7HRI-9 to send the message over RF. He's being gated by the
i-gate in Gillette, so the RF path is viable.
If you can see and send messages properly that way, then the next
likely culprit is the i-gate configuration. That would be up to K7RDC

Unless you have done modifications, the Nuvi must be powered from the
cradle or at least the rear connector and the FMI cable connects on the
right side of the Nuvi. If you can send commands to the T2, the GPS must
be in FMI mode... e.g.
Try this one and see if it beacons:
See if anyone else can decode it. Then get someone near to you to send
you a message. When I say near, that could be within earshot, or one or
two digi hops away. They could even be somewhere else if a nearby IGate
was configured properly to gate messages to local stations... as long as
you had beaconed so the IGate would know that you were there.
