I don't remember the link, but I seem to remember earlier mails to the 
APRSSIG list about a small Java appl. for mobile phones that could take 
NMEA data from a Bluetooth GPS and send it to the APRS-IS via a mobile 
data connection (GPRS, UMTS).

Does anybody recognize this, and remember the link to this appl.?
