I would not trust this setup using a Baofeng . I tried once and it never really worked. I used Pocket Packet.
Unless your dying to use RF I would just use the APRS-Fi app. To me APRS is a cool concept that people want to try but unless it is being used for a specific purpose or event it is a waste of time. Your best bet is to invest in a ham radio with it built in. The Yaesu's work great.
