    I meant to mention in the original post, but there's an existing feature request for APRS support, which has similar use cases and probably similar functionality requirements.

    100% agree with you on this request!

    They refuse to do APRSdroid because they say it's too niche, but this could be used on both Apple and Android; and doesn't require users to be licensed. And a Meshtastic device costs less than $30.

    As annoyed as I've been by their refusal to even consider implementing the single most requested (by a looooooong shot) feature, I feel like Meshtastic would be an even better solution, and I'd pretty much forget about APRSdroid at that point. Meshatastic has a much lower barrier for entry, and a lot more potential, IMHO.

    That would be great! Even tho ATAK is a powerful tool, it is tricky and need a lot of management. Integrating Meshtastic to GAIA would be a big plus to who they are targeting as customers in the first place.

    I am also one of those that requested APRSDroid. I would be ready to let go of it if Meshtastic was implemented. Finger crossed

    I'm just learning of Meshtastic and agree that it would be an unbelievable addition to Gaia, of which I've been a long-time user (signed up for first of the 'lifetime' plans).  Has anyone figured out how to integrate these two tools for iPhone?

    Another longtime user here. Adding a plugin for meshtastic would be a huge win for the app. Please make this happen.

    This would turn Gaia into a Garmin Rhino killer. Much cheaper, and with meshtastic you can get so much better range if repeater nodes are used.
