What I meant was that if the !DAO! thing had been there, I'm sure Kenwood
wouldn't have bothered adding datum conversion.  If you received a position
from a GPS receiver in AGD66 mode, it wouldn't be converted to WGS84 before
being passed on as a waypoint to your GPS receiver.  That's a lot to ask
from a small embedded processor.
