Adding to what the others have said: I have been using an eTrex Vista with
the TH-D7 for quite a few years, now with a TM-D700. No trouble.
With NMEA out AND in (as in my eTrex), you'll also see stations received by
your TM-D700 as waypoints on the GPS display. 
I have previously been using GPSMAP76 and the older unit GPS45xl
occasionally in my car, all showing other fixed and moving APRS stations as
waypoints on the map (or the map-like screen on the 45).
