OpenTracker

The OpenTracker was designed Scott N1VG. www.n1vg.net / Argent Data. It is in some ways similar to the TinyTrak. However, it uses BASE-91 instead MIC-E for compressed beacons. Unlike the TinyTrak which can use a switch to toggle between config 1 and config 2, the OpenTracker can toggle based on speed, altitude, supply voltage and so on. The OT also has an on-board temperature sensor and can include the supply voltage and temperature in the status text. As well as beaconing the voltage, you can also specify a minimum voltage it will operate at to try and prevent it from completely killing the battery in a parked vehicle. I have several OpenTrackers, but I'm also eagerly looking forward to release of the Tracker 2 which will be a send and receive device. In its digipeater mode, it will be remotely configurable via an APRS message.
