I'd suggest that brain dead trackers should be replaced with TNC's and
flexible application software.   A tracker gives you a small portion
of APRS functionality and no "communications" capabilities.

By changing the path on the fly, or using better software to control
the path, you can probably more then make up for the few extra bytes
created by the long NMEA sentences.
