For the Cooper River Bridge run in Charleston SC last weekend, the Android
guys, myself included used APRSDroid with the BT TNC2 from Mobilinkd.
Worked well for tracking the wheeled runners.   Two guys used the APRSPro
app on the walking portion of the 6.2 mile course.  (yeah they paid the $20
lifetime for TX), it worked well, it did suck the battery down but it
worked for the 3.5 hr walking time.  The race control was able to check the
end walker status so they could start opening roads behind them.  It was
not interfaced to a radio, IP for connectivitity, but it worked, even with
40,000 extra cellphones in the area.  I bet they will try a radio next
year...
