Who is discounting it?  I have some apps where it would be nice.

Your findings are correct.  That is one of the reasons why the RC-D710 is
already being discontinued and heavily discounted at stores.  A combination
of poor marketing and what ended up being a pretty limited accessory.

Hi all,

    Am I correct in saying that the RC-D710 acts only as a  TNC and
display when used with any radio other than the TM-V71?  That is, if I
wanted to
use it with my TM-D700,  I'd still need to use that radio's control head
as well
as the RC-D710?

    From what I've gleaned from the RC-D710's manual,  this is the case
... but
it doesn't  seem particularly clear about it.   Too bad Kenwood won't
update the
'700's firmware ... even with a trip to the service
center.                   73
