All, The radio coordinator lead for our next horse endurance ride has a somewhat modern TNC already plumbed to a serial port on one of his radio-van windows computers. We tuned the radio that feeds the TNC to 144.390 and see it is reading data. We want to put APRS beacons on moving assets and need this TNC to be put to work receiving the local APRS packets to display on a map. Hence the radio coordinator needs some suggestions for reasonably easy to install and configure APRS map display software with the following requirements... - Store maps locally as internet will be unavailable once on site. - Work with a variety of TNCs (KISS or not). - Not be stupid elaborate (some of the older programs are insanely un-obvious). A quick search found this recent software title... http://www.pinpointaprs.com/ I'll give it a try, but the bug list is a bit startling. The fact new software is in development is exciting though. Perhaps my search is over before it begins... #hopeful Anyway, I appreciate your opinions on off-grid APRS mapping software suggestions.
