I have a D710 myself. I can't recommend the GPS-710 enough from Green Light
Here is the manufacturers website: http://tinyurl.com/d8hsbb

I have two actually. I bought my D710 from Universal Radio and later found
out that it was back ordered. I had ordered my GPS-710 to go along with it
from the manufacturers website so it arrived plenty sooner than the actual
radio. To make a long story short I put the GPS up out of the way in a safe
place and forgot where I stashed it (Kitchen cupboard, why I put it there
I'll never know). I thought my wife threw it away so I bit the bullet and
ordered a new one. I found it a couple weeks later so I have a completely
working second GPS.
My D710 is hardwired to my battery so I can have the radio on when the car
is off... Killed my battery twice by accident. Oops. The GPS locks on in
under ~2 seconds from turning the radio on. Its great.
Anyways since I have a second one I can't use, I'd be more than happy to
just ship it to you so at least someone could use it if your interested. I
have all the original parts with it in the original static bag. GPS, sticky
tape, instructions, alcohol pad, and two adapter cables. One is a serial
cable the other is a power cable. You can see all the details on Green Light
Free no strings attached and nothing funny.
I know its weird to get something for free from a stranger on the internet
so I understand if your not interested for that reason.
Let me know if your interested.
