     There is a provision on the Kenwood to set the number of
characters sent to the unit via the Waypoint NMEA string, this is
because some gps units are limited, others are not. One thing to point
out is if you are going to use this gps with an opentrac or tinytrak
the serial in on the gps unit needs a wake up voltage of about 1 volt
to allow for serial NMEA to come out of the gps. It is a power
conserving feature.
