Works fine Works fine for me. On Nexus 7 with newest OS, and Galaxy S4 with current OS for VZW. You can use your EXISTING APRS-IS code from other apps (right in the documentation!), no waiting, no hoops. Put the code from my other APRS desktop software in and it went right online. Both tablet and phone are beaconing just fine over the network. Dont have the cables to hook to my Kenwood, but would like to give that a shot eventually. If you take your time, set things up (easy), and use the code from other software (easy to get, do a search. not going to post website here, if you are a HAM and use APRS, you can figure how to get the code generated instantly...) Have been involved in APRS off and on for 10years or more, with everything from trackers to IP based stations... I Recommend this app!

Great app but no updates! There is no longer any point to the wired mess of old school trackers! Although It's been a year since this app has been updated its still the most feature rich APRS app for Android. This app and the Mobilinkd BT kiss TNC create a much more powerful and cost effective APRS solution than you can buy commercially. Trackers are for WX balloons. This is a full featured APRS solution!

Moto G problem I've purchased your app while using my Moto Defy+ phone and now moved to Moto G 2nd (Android 4.4.4) I have a problem that cannot select the proper audio output to route the sound into my headset cable... Do you know any issue with this? Do you know any workaround? Thanks!
