I use an Airlink 1.01 with the TNC on a Kenwood D700 without difficulty.
However, the Airlink does not work when trying to configure a TinyTrak3 or an
OpenTracker 1.x.  (It works fine with other things such as a Garmin eTrex.)

Byonics offers a USB-serial interface that is supposed to work with the
TinyTrak.  I just ordered one and should have it in a couple of days.  My hunch
is that it takes a better cable to work with the simple devices.
