What is APRSdroid?

APRSdroid is an Android application for Amateur Radio operators. It allows reporting your position to the APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System) network, displaying of nearby amateur radio stations and the exchange of APRS messages.

APRSdroid is Open Source Software written in Scala and licensed under the GPLv2.


You can use APRSdroid to connect to the APRS network via different means:

Once connected, you can beacon your presence, see which stations (amateurs and repeaters) are around and send/receive APRS messages.


[QR code] If you really like APRSdroid, you can support the author by buying the Google Play version. You will get automatic updates and a good feeling.

It is also possible to download the APK for manual installation.
