One thing they were showing and operating was the AVMAP GPS
Which is a large screen GPS that plots all APRS positions (just
like any other GPS, but it has separate icons for those that are
moving and those that are fixed.  This makes it esier to see the
mobiles.

The GPS comes with a D700 compatible cable, so it is just
plug-n-play.  This is the AVMAP GPS that we have seen advertised
in Kenwood adds for several months.  I think it is in the $800
class.
