Awesome! I love this app. For the folks having passcode issues, if you use or have access to Xastir, go to the command line and type callpass and it'll give it to you instantly.

Great I know it is available for free, but I bought it from the play store to help support the author. It is really that good!

Works great First, the *developer* does not provide the pass-code. It's handled by a third party, and you have to email them a scanned copy of your amateur radio licence. Did you do that? Don't just send them your callsign, genius. I got my pass-code in under an hour. Second, you *only* need the pass-code if you are going to connect *over radio*. You can still use the internet side (APRS-IS) *without* the pass-code. Your cell data connection will work fine. Third, this app works fantastically with the Mobilinkd TNC2 over Bluetooth! It shows maps and (nearly) raw packet traffic. It even sends AFSK audio through your speaker or headphone jack. Completely flexible. The only way it could be improved would be to have an option to eliminate GPS entirely and just use it for AX.25 packet (other than APRS).

It just works! This is great for noobies! As an introduction to aprs I have learned more than I thought was possible about aprs. Works with IS and RF. Well worth the money.

This slow for a paid app? Can't tell you how it works because they still haven't provided a pass code.
