I don't know about that, but I do know the D700 has two speaker  
output jacks - so you could set one side of the radio for APRS and  
set the radio to use separate jacks for the separate sides of the  
radio.  You would lose voice alert, but I don't think that would  
matter (has *anyone* ever made a random voice alert contact?  It  
seems to be far easier to work rare DX than to talk to another APRS  
user).
