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
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?
