Thanks for mentioning this, Bob.
We are indeed working on HamHUD 4, the next generation of HamHUD that
will include a TNC (OpenTracker 2), as well as many other capabilities.
The ham radio functionality is fully integrated into a commercial
mapping package with turn-by-turn routing. It is wireless--no ugly
cables between the display unit and your rig. My test group has tested
many of the features in the prototypes, and has given me some good feedback.
However, due to some other commitments (day job), I am running late on
the development, and it won't be out in time for Christmas. I need to
change the website to reflect that.
I am shooting for Dayton 2009, but it might be available before that.

Not at all, and thank you for being a supporter of the HamHUD.
