I have released javAPRSME 1.0 for general use.  You can get it from
http://www.aprs-is.net/javAPRSME.htm

javAPRSME is a midlet (a Java application written for the mobile
platforms) which makes use of JSR 179 (the Location API for mobile
Java).  Some (not all by any means) cell phones with a Java virtual
machine support this API.  If yours does, then you can use your cell
phone to provide up-to-date tracking.  Update intervals range from 1 to
60 minutes with a transfer of about 100 bytes total per update.  HTTP is
used for the update so it should be compatible with most services.

Some phones known to have JSR 179 implemented are some Nokia's and some
Blackberry's.  Check your manual for your model.

Have fun.
