Important information before you spend $5 Have to install the device you have to get a passport . And then takes you to a web page where you enter and your ham radio license grid square and email address you then receive an email back telling you that from one day to two weeks they will give you the passcode. You then get a follow up email telling you to take a picture of your ham radio license and send it into them. So if you like to wait this is a great program.

Solid app Use it both via TCP/IP and a mobilinkd Bluetooth adapter, works well. Would be more useful with some additional features -decode weather strings -show icons instead of entering the character code for them -show distances in either metric or imperial units Be sure to check out the website for a version with offline maps.
