[aprssig] d700 minidin question

The 350 is the first (lowest) nuvi that has FMI interface.  FMI makes the
unit boot into rs232 mode on the usb cable and it'll be in garmin binary
mode.  Scott Miller's T2 tracker will talk to the garmin in this mode as
will a yet to be released protocol converter.  The procol converter will
accept kenwood format data from the d710, and will input/output NMEA.
Be aware that other models of the nuvi leave an annoying breadcrumb trail of
stations when plotting rx'ed stations.  The 350 correctly moves the icon
instead of creating one icon for each station's position as they move.  The
models that do the "breadcrumb" method will fill up their waypoint memory at
an incredible rate.
