         OK, that's a good start.

         Going from memory, I think the GPSHEAD and LTP commands are 
the only ones that make GPS operation work.  IIRC, the four BLT's are 
just like the original BEACON, and I don't know what LTRACK does at all.

         Put the TNC in GPS mode and connect the GPS.  Let it sit 
there for maybe 10 or 15 minutes.  Next, disconnect the GPS and 
connect the TNC to your laptop and do a DISP G.  That should get a 
list of the GPS commands -- when you do that, copy them to us 
here.  That's probably the best way to get this going.
