currently, it requires a Bluetooth-serial dongle to be attached to the
GPS port on the Kenwood head unit.

There are two german articles describing the Kenwood operation:

http://www.kh-gps.de/rs232_bt.htm

Generic Bluetooth info for APRSdroid can be found linked here:
https://github.com/ge0rg/aprsdroid/wiki/Projects
(the articles in the last link assume the Bluetooth adapter is
connected to a TNC, but the same holds true for the GPS port of the
Kenwood - except that on the GPS port you are operating TTL levels IIRC)
