The major challenge here is probably to find a device that implements
USB host mode to interact with the D72A (or is there another way to
access its data port than USB?), and to forward it over Bluetooth.

[This could be accomplished by an RPi or an Android, but for the latter
it would probably be easier to just use usb-serial without any

Once that is accomplished, the D72A needs to be configured to output
NMEA/PKWDWPL data over its serial port, and APRSdroid will happily parse
and display it on the map.
