I actually don't have either of those pieces of equipment, but I
recall mention of difference in the NMEA string and some setting in
the D700. I believe it had to do with the number of digits in the
decimal portion of the lat/long.
It's possible that he has it set right for positions but not for
objects. (at least let's hope that Kenwood included settings for both.)
You might be able to experiment with entering less digits on the
object to see if that helps, but some time with the Kenwood manual
might be in order. Last I knew they had it available for download at
their site. I took a copy on an exercise with me because I knew the
next station had a D700. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to copy it
when I switched computers, since I don't have a D700.
