- May 11, 2014Yes, actually I have requested the developer of DIXPRS to make an update for DIXPRS with GPS capabilities.
However it would be really great if more people would request this feature on the DIXPRS forum:
I have already the DIXPRS running on Raspberry PI connected with a USB GPS receiver powered by a 6000 mAh accu. It runs about 8 hours.
However the DIXPRS software is not yet ready.

Navilock NL-402U USB GPS / Galileo Receiver (U-Block) is recognized by the linux kernel.
Actually I mentioned the developer to make it as a fully functional mobile iGate, as it is easy to add Nano Wifi stick in the Raspberry Pi and with a wifi tethering android mobile phone the mobile iGate would be ready.
At the beginning no need Smart Beaconing, normal periodic beacons would be enough to make the development easier.

Is there any command line APRS software for the RPi and TNC-Pi that simply handles APRS beaconing etc. so that I can use the RPi simply as a mobile APRS source? Running X and Xastir is overkill for my needs and just hogs resources.
