Is there anyone coming to Baltimore, MD 18 Sept for the TAPR/ARRL Digital
Conference that can bring their Android app and show it?


George, can you send me some screen shots I can add to my presentation?

Hi All,

After another long phase of intensive development, I have just released
APRSdroid 1.1 to the Android Market.

APRSdroid is an open-source APRS-IS application for Android devices.

The new version comes with several major improvements compared to the
last 1.0.3 release:

 * APRS Messaging (you can send and receive messages, there is
  automatic retry support for TX and Android notifications for RX;
  the tracking service has to be active all the time)

 * preliminary Bluetooth TNC support (I hope that one or the other TNC
  manufacturer will provide ready-made solutions soon, so the code can
  be tested in depth. Right now I consider it beta quality)

 * New option to "Keep screen awake"

 * Improved performance: the Hub and Map should perform much better now,
  even with very many stored stations.

You can support APRSdroid development by getting the Market version from

You can also just download the binary from http://aprsdroid.org/download/

As always, I am glad to get feedback either on this list or via e-mail.

You can also follow @APRSdroid on twitter for update notifications and
beta version releases.

The APRSdroid home page is at http://aprsdroid.org/m

Of course, you will need an APRS-IS passcode to be able to make full use
of the application.

P.S: It seems, the U2APRS home page is down. Anyone knows what happened
to the project?

P.P.S: With VUF-TRACKER <http://1011.se/aprs/> there is a new
alternative to APRSdroid out there, with an interesting UI approach and
direct aprs.fi <http://aprs.fi/>  integration.
