Interesting point. The D700 will generate NMEA waypoints ($GPWPL 
sentences) for
position reports that it receives and transmit them back to the GPS 
receiver on
the GPS port of the D700. Some GPS's will then display those waypoints.

Is there a PC-based APRS client that can read those waypoints from the RS-232
port on the D700?
