Are you using the 2.5mm jack connector for this?
If yes is it possible to use the "PS2" jack from the TNC on the 710 so 
that you can use the NUVI to send messages?

It's pretty easy sending messages and receive them even when the radio 
is in APRS mode. This way you can use the radio as usual but get the 
extra functionality as a keyboard via the NUVI and yes also the maps.

I would love a smal unit doing just the NUVI "thing" because using a 
Tracker2 is overkill if you are using a 710 ;o) So a smal translator 
board interfacing the 710 with one PS2 connector and one 2.5mm
