Actually they DO sell the display head/TNC/APRS terminal separately for 
about half the price of the radio.  Think of it as a commercially-built 
Ham Hud.   You can "upgrade" a TM-71 to a D710 (RF chassis is 
identical),  or with any other radio where the RF control functions are 
lost but the APRS functions remain.
