   Probably so... I haven't had to call Kenwood for any help on mine. The
D700 manual has detailed instruction on how to hook up the GPS and as long
as it puts out NMEA @ 4800, it should work. I know that they probably
won't help you with any APRS clients programs!

	I think most problems now are there are so many different GPS' on
the market (with DB9's etc) that its making hooking up harder. Also
Trimble 450's have a Config program that you have to run to get NMEA

   All the Garmins I have hooked up (II,II+,III,III+,GPS120), the data
cables were bare when made installation a snap. And really all you need is
the ground and TX from the GPS is you don't want all those waypoints
flooding back to your GPS. I had that problem with the Garmins... getting
the data FROM the D700 populating my waypoints in the GPS.
