Full bi-directional RS-232 APRS communication
The Geosat 6 APRS comes with a Kenwood-ready cable and exclusive APRS bi-directional RS-232 APRS interface compatible with ALL current APRS ready Kenwood Radios, including the new TH-D72A/E. Geosat 6 APRS provides GPS location information for your transmitted APRS beacons, and it shows received APRS information on its map display. The unit can store up to 1000 APRS contacts and display them on the map.

Intercept To Target
You can set your Geosat 6 APRS to navigate to your favorite APRS mobile station and get rerouting instructions when the new position is reported!

APRS icons
Watch APRS activity right on the screen and you can distinguish between fixed and mobile APRS stations. Static positions are represented by blue bulls-eye icons along with the associated call sign. If used with a Kenwood D710A/E and if set in the KENWOOD  format sentence, the Geosat 6 APRS supports standardized APRS icons.

Tactical Mode
Geosat 6 APRS fully takes advantage of the Kenwood format sentence. The Tactical mode allows you to select an APRS contact to see on the full info page its speed, course and altitude in addition to its call sign and position.

APRS contacts management
Thanks to the new APRS contacts smart management, Geosat 6 APRS can auto-delete the received APRS contacts’ positions after a set timeout. You can also sort your APRS contacts by alphabetical order or receiving time.
