Byonics Micro-Trak AIO is a transmit-only device. All it does is
blindly transmit your position and it does not allow you to see
what's going on in the APRS world around you. Also, as a
transmit-only device, it can and will transmit on top of other APRS
transmitters causing some interference and dropped packets.
Byonics has done a great job marketing the AIO, but I think
purchasers of this device are missing the bigger picture. APRS is not
just for vehicle tracking.

three minutes even when your vehicle is not moving. That's redundant
information which just adds to the congestion on the APRS network. I
believe that your AIO supports SmartBeaconing which will adjust your
beacon rate depending on your speed. Do you have SmartBeaconing
enabled and properly configured? A beacon rate of once every ten
minutes while stationary varying up to once every two minutes at 60
MPH is usually sufficient.
