I work APRS with my D7 and a Garmin eMap. Works great. I would really like to be able to also connect up my Sony Clie NX60 and run PocketAPRS.
I think I'm doomed here, but maybe someone else has figured this out. The Clie's connection to PCs is via USB. I have a USB to serial adapter, but that adapter (I think) depends on the 5 volts that USB sources like PCs usually provide. Obviously the D7's "PC out" connector has no DC. I guess I could rig up a small battery pack to provide a bit of power to the adapter, but before fooling with all that, I thought I'd check the experts.
My fallback would be to bring my old HandSpring Visor out of storage, but I really like the Clie's screen resolution. Any comments on using the USB to serial adapter with a 5 volt source wired in?
