Essentially this is what a Kenwood TM-D700 is!   Actually the D700 (and 
it's hand-held counterpart the TH-D7) actually go beyond this in that 
they have APRS-specific firmware that turns the front panel display into 
a text-based APRS client.   

When you use the built-in TNC with an external program on a PC via the 
radio's serial port, the command syntax is very similar (though not 
identical) to a TNC2.
