Everyone please listen. 

I beg to differ with Mr. Bruninga.  Kenwood TM-D710 DOES NOT (I REPEAT) DOES NOT sell SmartBeaconing(tm) in the D710. 

HamHUD Nichetronix, LLC (my company) OWNS SmartBeaconing(tm), and I alone license it.  It is the most popular mobile tracker position beaconing algorithm to implementers, but so far, no large ham radio manufacturer has it in their radios.   And by the way, the algorithm is not, contrary to popular opinion, owned by the makers of either TinyTrak or OpenTracker.  It began with HamHUd II, which is still the reference standard implementation  for SmartBeaconing(tm).

Kenwood is NOT currently producing or selling ANY products that include SmartBeaconing(tm).  If and when they do, you will see the announcement FIRST on the HamHUD website, www.hamhud.net.
