	Do you know how it will handle bulletins and objects?

Thank You,

How cool is this?


I got the Nuvi into fleet management mode, and it adds menu items for 
messaging.  Shown here is my D7A sending a text message to the T2 (via 
an old Alinco DJ-F1T that's not shown).

Here's the messaging menu:


And the message composition screen:


It's going to have to take a destination callsign in the message text, 
though.  I think I'm going to make the default behavior to be 'reply', 
so if you don't include a destination, it'll just send the message to 
whoever sent the last message it received.

And when I get a chance, I'll see about tying it all into the T2's 
command processor, so you can reconfigure it from the Nuvi's message 

For the receive side, I think this beats the D700/D710 for usability 
already.  When you tap a message summary, you get a whole page to view 
the text (200 characters max, I think) and it's a very clear, 
daylight-readable display with a simple interface.  Can't wait to try it 
out on one of the big StreetPilots.
