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).
