I am wondering if the KPC 3+ is even usefull as tracker, if I remember 
right all they did was filter the nmea strings from the gps and feed 
that to the UI frames.
nmea trackers have a tendancy to overload the frequentie with their long 
frames, especialy when using the long paths and or high rates.
