When I first got this app I couldn’t get “anyone” to show up but me on the map screen. Since the last update, I I am able to see other Ham rigs that have broadcasted recently, as I travel. I leave it on, with the beacon active, tp always keep me “on-grid” and showing on the map. I love this app! Because it shows so much on the highways, I leave it going on my iPad Mini in my Jeep, as the navigations app. It’s awesome!
APRS app that keeps getting better
All apps have issues and bugs. This one seems to keep improving without causing big changes that would make users hate the change. Excellent program. I hope they continue on the same path of improvement and integration with new things like the new external bluetooth APRS devices on the market. -KX4MQ
Looks good, easy to use. 👍
Works great on iOS, user friendly, a ham radio operator must have that has a smart device. Lots of icons for every occasion, after call sign marker I use a lower case -i to indicate iPad or iPhone. On my ht i dont use a number due to it being my only aprs unit, but people with more than one number them.
