Funny, I only just joined this group and read this message.
I have been looking at ways of getting data in/out of a "ce" device running "miopocket" and came across GPS2Blue (which is installed with miopocket. Unfortunately only one way...
OziexplorerCE doesn't have an API to add waypoints on the go, would be nice, must ask Des about that.
The oziAPRS obviously uses the API, but I really don't think its designed for the mobile, rather more for base tracking.
The best bet would the AVmap gps's, but unfortunately no maps for us Aussie's (yet/ifever).
