I don't currenlty have the hardware to set up APRS via radio, so I've been using my Droid phone with APRSDroid software that uses the GPS data to upload over the phones 4G internet connection.

Now, I have a netbook and an inverter so I can have it in my car, which has a USB gps dongle, along with Windows 7 and Kubunutu OS's on dual boot, and it can tether through my phone. Is there any software out there that is like APRSdroid that can take GPS data and upload position reports through the internet? Most of the software I've found on google viewers only, or upload via TNC or speaker output connection to a physical radio.

Thanks all!

Aprsisce. http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/. It is not only for ce based devices but there is a windows version that is being constantly developed. You can pre load map tiles and use very little data if you have your filters set right to the IS.

I run Kubuntu on my main computer as a dual boot.

try xastir, it is in the repository. I havent figured out how to get other maps yet but it will work to get you on.

I have been using YAAC (Yet Another APRS Client).  It is written in Java and is multi-platform.  Even though it says Alpha, I have not found any issues with it.  It is in very active development.  I use it under Linux so I can't say how it runs under windows.  Worth a look.  73's, Jeff
