The problem with APRSplus is: NO NEW MAPS! APRSplus only worked with
Delorme Street Atlas. The last version of Street Atlas worked with it
(Street Atlas "Classic" Ver 9.0) is now 5 years old and out of print.
The current versions of Delorme products that use the new-style
interface (Street Atlas "Deluxe", Street Atlas "Road Warrior, SA 2004,
SA2004, TopoUSA, etc) WON'T WORK with APRSplus (or any other APRS
application). Except, of course, as a source for static screen caps of
UI-View works with the last three versions of Undertow Software's
Precision Mapping, including the very latest current version PMap
Version 7.0. UI-View also supports, in a limited way, the current
versions of Microsoft MapPoint 2004 and MS Streets & Trips 2005.
All three of these products cover Canada at street level, which Street
Atlas never did. As a result, APRSplus was never really usable in
Canada; UI-View is.
