Unfortunately, the Runbo does not allow the software to send or receive
signals on the radio, not even to trigger PTT. So from a digital radio
standpoint, this is a dead end :-(

You can run APRSdroid on it, but not in a useful way on the built-in
radio module. Instead, you need to use TCP/IP or an external radio.

I really hope they will bring out a new device with a different radio
chip though... one day.
