[aprssig] Help setting up Kenwood D700A

every Garmin I've seen has a delete by symbol option (kinda hard to find
on some models).... since the d700 generated waypoints are always
defaulting to dots, I just periodically delete all "dot" symbol
waypoints.  The other option is to limit the range on the d700 to 100 miles.
