[aprssig] Nuvi GPS blast

My NUVI350 from the shack came with a cable but I have not yet
found any software - has anyone? I would like to store favorite
locations, selectively remove APRS locations without removing all
of the favorites or doing one at a time, etc. Ideas?

GO NAVY
GO TEXAS BEAT BAMA
