.Not familiar with the 600 series but the earlier one doesn't have 
APRS.  It  does have a TNC built-in (actually the same Tasco 
TNC-on-a-chip as the Kenwoods), but no APRS-specific firmware or display 
capability.    In standalone mode (no PC attached to the serial port), 
the Alinco is basically an NMEA dumb tracker.
