Like what?
The community wanted 1 foot resolution.  We upgraded 
APRS with the !DAO! format that not only provided that
but was 100% backwards compatible and provided DATUM
as well.

I just dont understand all this griping over people wanting
to use a depricated obsolete 1 foot resolution format that cannot
be seen by 10,000 edsxisting APRS users that represent
85% of all users who use APRS mobile!

You call that progress??????  Continuing to insist o using
the obsolete and depricated compressed object format 
that is known to be broken is what is hold ing APRS back.
Not the spec.
