O man and here I just started buying those winbook tablets to help put aprsis32 in more cars for the BikeMS events we do.   I will probably keep doing that as they work well.  We have been using aprsis32 on windows tablets for years..   But the 7inch winbook with aprsis32 pre-loaded osm maps and route overlay work great on a suction cup mount and is much nicer then somebody holding a surface pro tablet all day for two days straight.

Here is a snapshot from the drivers seat in the RADIO/Route Manager unit..  The tablet on the left has wifi to 4g and bluetooth to the d710. ( i put a bluetooth chip into the head of the 710 ) So it gets vhf and aprsis32 when we have cell phone coverage…  I use a little nema gps on each tablet for faster data then gps passthrough on the bluetooth.  The tablet on the right is wifi to 4g only.  But it’s more of a view only for the navigator and see were we are on the route.  The D710 is just for APRS and backup analog voice.. Between the seats is two XPR5550’s for DMR/MotoTRBO Voice Coms.

The route manager unit is a-little extreme.  The other units we have SAG/MED’s currently have a VHF APRS radio with argent ot3 trackers.  Going to Nuvi350’s. There is also a UHF DMR radio in the stack.    But we have started adding aprsis32 setups to mainly add route overlays to moving map plus pan/zooming with aprsis32 is faster then on the nuvis..

$50 for the TW700 Tablet
$3 bluetooth module added to OT3
$20 Window Mount for Tablet
$5 12v to 5v USB adapter for tablet power.
$25 USB GPS if faster nema is required..

It’s cheap for each unit.  For mapping I built an OSM tile server that covers just Michigan and surrounding states.. It also pre-renders zoom levels 1-17.  I then take and pre-fetch off my own server and copy that folder to all of the winbook tablets for each ride.  We do 3 different rides here in Michigan each year so the gear does get used more then once..

Here is the pre-made radio stacks we built for the units.  XPR4550 UHF for voice. APRS VHF OT3 below it.  and Nuvi350.   We are adding the bluetooth modules to each OT3 to run the winbooks with APRSIS32..

You can join the APRSISDR Yahoo group if you're interested.  I've been running the new client on my Samsung S5 as KJ4ERJ-12 for over a year now.  It's not real good at showing you information, but the tracker and map work just fine!
