Perfect for light Aircraft
This thing is tiny and has everything, 2000mah lithium battery, GPS, TNC, 1.5W transceiver, programmable frequency... Took me 4 days to get the Chinese software figured out as there was no info on the web. Now, with all the files on the Yahoo Group AP510 it's only a few minutes of work. The USB cable that comes with this is really a Serial to USB comm port prolific device. WIN7 loads the drivers automatically, XP drivers can be found on the Yahoo Group called AP510. In fact all the needed software is there in the files section, including the useless English manual.

The program that talks to the AP150 needs another file MSCOMM32.OCX to run and so far I got it to register on my XP laptop but have tried 2 WIN7 computers and can't get it to register. Others have got it to work on WIN7 and 8. See the Yahoo Group AP510 for details.

With only about 1.5W it is very low power. Expecting it to work driving around in your car, even with a decent mag mount is unreasonable. Plan to add a power amp to it. But I wanted it for use in my airplane. You don't want high power in an airplane! I hooked it to a 1/4 wave antenna and flew with it today. Perfect, performed beyond my expectations! Go to APRS.fi and do a search for N3QP-11. This was thru the Bluetooth setup on my phone with smart beaconing turned on (not a AP510 function). No interference with any of my Comm radios, GPS, nothing. I couldn't even tell it was running.

The coolest thing is the AP510 has Bluetooth so I pared it to my Samsung S2 and used the app APRSDroid to talk to the AP510. Worked great. The AP510 does have a receiver and picks up the local packets being sent by WX stations and such. It is also smart in that if you turn, it sends another beacon right after the turn. Very cool.

Without the Bluetooth turned on, the AP510 puts out a beacon as soon as it has GPS lock. You can set the time between beacons from 1 sec to 999 sec I got mine set for 120 seconds.

One weird thing is you have to use a 6 digit call sign. Mine is 4 so I added 11 to my call sign.

Another oddity, it has a MicroSd card slot. If you've set it to beacon every 2 minutes then the device will store your position in the card every 2 min. You can open this .kml file with Google Earth... but the Chinese messed up the East/West so it shows you in Northern India! Bet they will fix that one day.

Programming this thing is just weird. All the info you need is at the Yahoo Group AP150. You will need to be a computer geek cause you'll be setting up comm ports and registering the OCR file... So don't buy this unless your a bit of a computer geek. Or plan to have some geek help you!

The manual is upgraded
I think this one is an upgraded version. Whatever, the manual is better. Becasue I bought one last month, and got one this month. Came with different appearence. But, the manaul and the package box are quite better.
