Hi George,

I have looked at your code and the AVRS code but thanks for pointing it out.

I am thinking of a HUD more like the 2-3 line display for the standalone 
HUDs. APRSDroid's display is not readable if my phone is mounted on the 
dash. The text is to small.

I had to reset my phone the other day and lost the install of your app. 
Does it support message sending? As I recall it doesn't.
