See Stephen's reply about USB!

When I said "connect it to a terminal program" I was forgetting that you
probably have the version of the GTRANS cable that connects directly
to the D710. Mine has a 9 pin DE-9 for connecting to an RS-232 port,
so it's a lot easier for me to connect it to a terminal program and see
what it is spitting out.



You would have to make up an adapter to go from the 3 pin connector
on the end of the Kenwood version of the GTRANS cable to go to a serial
port... ground, transmit data and receive data. You could just haywire a
stereo jack to a DE-9 and then connect that to your PC, or to a USB to
serial adapter if you don't have any RS-232 ports.
