Comes for free if you run APRSISCE/32 as your APRS client.  It was just 
a matter of selecting what path options I wanted to see.



The default is Flash (10 seconds), but when you select All, you get to 
see the paths of every packet you've received.  Of course, it looks even 
better with an RF feed because you're not limited to the first packet to 
make it to the APRS-IS, but see every digipeat of every packet.

You can play with the Direct, First, Middle, and Final to see real-time 
changes and how many packets have gone through digi-to-digi hops 
(Middle) to get where they're going.
