Thanks for the info!
I guess I have been asleep on this one.  If this is the case, then 
we must get it fixed.  ALL APRS position formats include position 
comments so that we dont have inefficiencies of having to send
two packets when only one is needed.  How can FINDU not
be getting them on the TinyTrack when I thought they work on all
other packets?  Maybe I just havent noticed...
