   The .fi maps are, of course nicer than the APRSWorld maps, but .fi is limited to 24 hour periods per view as far as I can see.
   Steve D. allows more latitude in customizing things by adding some parameters to the URL.  Like the past-duration (Start parameter) and magnification (degree parameter)

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/track.cgi?call=BUOY-4&start=1000&degree=.08

For example, make degree=.005 to really zoom in.  It seems to be speeding up to the SW as I look now.

It also appears to have been on the highway over the weekend.
