Interesting...   I stand corrected.     My original assumption was 
partly based on the fact that the letter "N" is directly next to "M" on 
standard QWERTY keyboards, easily leading to my conclusion of a typo.

However, I still maintain the presentation is clueless marketing since:

1)    The undefined acronym was used in the context of a page oriented 
to APRS. 

2)    According the the TMC website, this service doesn't seem to be 
available in the US, making it even more irrelevent to a marketing 
effort directed towards US APRS hams.

3)    Even if the service WAS available in the US, it wouldn't have much 
to do with APRS.
