This query as  posted, makes no sense.  

o     What does "The D700 is connected to the D700 serial port" mean??? 
>>    This should have been "The IPAQ 4705 is connected to the D700 serial
port"    

o     What is a Socket Cordless Serial Adapter?  Is it a bluetooth-type 
dongle?  A serial-to-USB converter? or what?

>>    The Socket Cordless Serial Adapter is a Bluetooth to RS-232 adapter.

o     "(Note: TNC Type shows "None" and I can not select anything else 
from the pull-down menu."  in what program or application? 
>> As stated above, the application is APRS/CE.  I am using version 1.02.

o     Does the Street Pilot have a serial port? 
>>    Yes, the StreetPilot 1 has an RS232 port.   

o     Is it connected to the dedicated GPS port on the D700?
>>    Yes

Thanks, Allen
