Re: [aprsisce] Feedback solicitation
- The version that is currently released doesn't support GPS on Win32, but
only on Windows Mobile. I've got the next version approaching release
that will support an NMEA GPS via COM port (or BlueTooth COM port) on
Win32 as well as direct access to a KISS TNC via the same mechanisms.
Watch this space over the next two weeks or so.

This is part of the APRS 1.1 Spec Addendum you can see at:
I'm considering supporting the ability to beacon a "destination
waypoint" as well as interpret them and draw the lines that are
described. I don't know how many other APRS clients do this, but it's
part of the published spec, so I might as well support it! Who knows, I
might even make it part of the Poll's () "slow beacon" mode!
Oh, and another preview of things to come is that I'm designing a
"coordinate picker" dialog that will embed the OpenStreetMap with pan
and zoom to allow you to home in on and set a coordinate. It'll still
support a variety of manually-entered coordinates, but you'll be able to
see where you entered or enter what you see. - Thoughts?
