Google earth works fine...  The APRS application just needs to provide a KML web 
server that outputs the appropriate information when queried.  That also allows 
multiple users to have access to the same view, controlled from a central source.

The issue of what to do when you don't have an internet connection, is getting 
to be a smaller issue.  My verizon USB modem works amazingly well.  With D-Star 
data radios, there are possibilities there too.
