[aprssig] Open GPS Tracker via SMS

Here's a web site that describes how to make a GPS tracking device using a GPS
Module, a custom board/processor/firmware and a specific cellular phone.
<a href="http://www.opengpstracker.org/howitworks.html">Open GPS Tracker: How
it works</a>

The tracker firmware interfaces with the phone and sends the location using SMS.

Sounds like it would be easy to be modified to send APRS positions to the
APRS-IS. The only question that I have is what other phones this may work
with.

Has anyone else looked into it?
