You guys want to make sure that the data are not fed back to the APRS-IS.
Tracking a vehicle on the free Google map is clearly infringing the T&C.

In "normal" APRS you are tracking a Radio Amateur, wherever he is. Here
it is the vehicle you track. Google has pulled the plug on a good number of
sites infringing their T&Cs.

Except where you have been specifically licensed to do so by Google,
you may not use Google Maps with any products, systems, or
applications installed or otherwise connected to or in communication
with vehicles, capable of vehicle navigation, positioning, dispatch,
real time route guidance, fleet management or similar applications.

I'm not going to pay the license fee for all the users of my GMaps for the
UI-WebServer. Entrance fee is USD10000 or EURO 10000 per year.
