You can run APRSDroid without a GPS.

For a manual position,
Go into preferences, select 'Location Source' and choose 'Manual Position.'
Go into preferences, select 'Location Settings' and enter the lat and 
lon as signed decimal degrees.

For network assisted,
Go into preferences, select 'Location Source' and choose 'Periodic 
GPS/Network Position.'
Go into preferences, select 'Location Settings' and turn on 'Use network 
location'

I've never used the network assisted but I use manual quite a bit when I 
want to give an obscured position better than position ambiguity gives.
