[aprssig] "Smart" vs. "dumb" trackers

Greetings, all.

After dealing with some issues this weekend at a public service event with constantly having to reset "dumb" trackers and not being able to reliably see mixed "dumb" trackers and full-function APRS radios (Kenwood D710), I was wondering:

Does anyone know of a reasonably priced and reasonable performance "smart" tracker? That would be a tracker with a receiver (so it doesn't depend solely on timeslotting to avoid packet collisions)? Having some minimal UI on the tracker so messages could be sent back to it from the Net Control Station position would be a plus.

Tying up a Kenwood D72 is kind of overkill (especially on price). Anyone have any ideas in this area?
