The best APRS setup! Fabulous software. I run it as a display and GPS for my TM-D710 via the new Kenwood mode, and also use it with a Mobilinkd Bluetooth TNC to a Chinese handheld. Woks brilliantly, and assuming you have the phone/tablet this solution is only marginally more expensive to spec up than a TinyTrak or similar tracker which provides you with no intelligence while out and about. Truly a no-brainer purchase, and worth every cent of the applications modest cost. Download the free APK first if you have any doubts. Ignore the negative reviews. Yes, you need to wait for approval to use IP based position updates - yes, it may even take a while. Big deal, get over it. Many other issues or questions that are mentioned can be solved by reading the documentation - something Hams should be good at. The negativity and one star reviews left because people couldn't get something working or had to wait a while astounds me. You're not owed anything, even if you opted to pay for it.

Works great now I originally tried this on a Samsung Galaxy S, but phone kept radio keyed. Tried on Motorola Droid Ultra, now works great. I use phone tied to either my Kenwood th-f6a or my Baofeng uv-5r, works great with both.

Finally a wonderful APP for APRS I have been using it for little over 3 weeks now and been doing a lot of traveling from KS to MI and back and it simply works great. Thanks for a whole new light on APRS and bring that part of Amateur Radio back alive for me. 73 - Rob K0RU
