km only ? Am I missing something or is distance only in km now. I could have sworn that you could choose between miles and km in previous versions. Other than that its great. I've been using for some time and am a long time APRS user. Can't wait for the tablet version.
Works...Sorta It works on some things. But forget about weather bulletins and objects. Well at least the objects work for a few minutes. Then they stop working. Bulletins never come through from AE5PL-WX. Nothing compares to APRSISCE.
Lacking ability to easily send a message more than once I bought this to spot myself for SOTA. Unfortunately you cannot easily resend a message (spot) as it takes 7 steps each time to resend the message once more. I am sending as audio from the speaker on my S5 to the mic on my ham radio. Works fine but for SOTA spots it is lacking. Would also be nice if you could decode any ack/duplicate etc messages right after you tx the audio.
Great app. And a lot of fun. Coupled with a Mobilinked TNC, cable free tracking off road. Works great. It works great as a mobile only app as well. For those complaining about Passcodes, you need to read the FAQ!!! Or learn more about APRS and get your APRS-IS passcode, and just use that. Easy stuff for a Ham. Anyway, this is a fun app to use and for use with a TNC and Radio, saves a ton of trouble, work and money. Highly recommended.
Great Program Works great on phone and tablet. Setup is easy and software does exactly as intended and advertised. APRSIS password is easily found online if you have a callsign. It's really a non issue and is not tied to just this software but any APRS software you use. Best $5 I've ever spent! Give this author a break.
Very fun app. So far I have used it with an arduino running MicroAPRS firmware via a bluetooth connection, and at other times a audio cable directly to my android device. I just ordered a mobilinkd TNC2 to use with this software also. With the audio cable I am stuck using a radio with VOX which means I use my UV-5RV2+. But when using an external TNC with PTT signal I can use my VX-6R.
