Not quite.

If you want the maximum amount of APRS data displayed, your answer is correct.

But _any_ GPS capable of plotting standard NMEA waypoints (or, IIRC,
Magellan style waypoints) over a standard NMEA serial interface will
plot simple waypoints with callsigns on the GPS, assuming the D710 (or
700, ro D7, or I suspect the D72) is correctly connected and
configured.

The old serial eTrex units will show waypoints from the radio.  My
first generation Garmin MAP60C works fine as well, as do many others.
