I hope some of you can help use APRS to track this Ford Focus EV from NY to
LA next week?

See: http://www.menshealth.com/techlust/electric-car-challenge

<snip>

For example, if the object's name is FOCUS-EV then one should be able to
send an APRS RF message to "FOCUS-EV" and the local IGate should respond
with an up-to-date current position for that callsign.

But this assumes that the IGate treats OBEJCTS and STATIONS the same as
*intended* by APRS (some don't).  We need to find these weaknesses and fix
them.
