Group Description

This group will discuss the Chinese AP510 and AVRT5 handheld APRS units. These are the same units with the AVRT5 being marketed in China.

This group will discuss how to get the software working and how to program the device? I got this working on XP and Win7, others have it working on Win 8 and 10. The biggest problem is the USB cable is a counterfeit Prolific USB to Serial device and many times Windows loads the driver for the non-counterfeit. Delete the driver and try again.

To avoid a bunch of problems, update your Firmware to the latest version.

Watch the video: Youtube search for "AP510 APRS tracker configure software and firmware by HamRadioConcepts even tho all the software he references is in the files section in this Yahoo Group...

Now try and put in Your call sign and write. Do a read and see if it took. If it didn't take, your probably not really writing to the AP510.

Folks have had success with Windows XP, 7, 8, 10. It's all based on getting the Prolific Driver right and a couple of files you have to register(a DOS command) in Windows. So sorry if you are an Apple user.

Windows 10? Download Visual Basic DLL's directly from microsoft:

The Developer has a nice download site for all his products: See
