I would try AGWTracker.  AGWTracker needs to use the SV2AGW AGWPE packet 
engine to interface to the TNC, but it is very nice. It can use UI-VIew 
maps, can use maps directly from the Internet, or can even use MapPoint. 
George also has a Unicode version that allows AGWT to be used in many 
different languages so it is sure to gain momentum worldwide over time.

If you want to have a Digi and Igate, then also download AGWUIDigi. It's 
also free and interfaces to the TNC the same way. Bu using AGWPE, 
multiple programs can access the TNC.

The problem with UI-View is that the author died and he wanted the 
source code destroyed.  In doing so the program is an orphan. No 
enhancements can be made to it. It is frozen is time.


First, download AGWPE and install and get it working with your TNC. Then 
download other programs and install. Very easy. If you run into trouble, 
just write.

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!" -- Winston Churchill
