I know I would! If the price were better than $600. I'm trying to roll
my own APRS station with an Alinco DR-135T, a T2-135, and a Nuvi 350,
but I'm having issues there. I'm now playing with the same Alinco, a
TinyTrak4, and a future PIC-based interface to the same Nuvi-350.
I'd really LOVE to have a D710, but can't do the $$$ in one shot at this
point. If I keep the components separate, I can justify the "other"
uses for the various components (Alico is voice, Nuvi 350 can be
standalone, HT + TT4 is IGate/Digi, you get the flexibility).
