I am looking for a GPS Based Arduino APRS/ "Navigator" project.
With Navigator be able enter the start and end designations. It would be nice for it to have the b asic features for a type Garmin type unit as a navigator type unit.

Thanks for the help. 73

The only device I know of that's close to what you want is the AvMap products that were made for APRS. The AvMap APRS products were a mapping GPS receiver with navigation that understood how to interface with the Kenwood APRS radios.

I owned one. It was expensive to purchase and map upgrades were expensive. And, it was a bit quirky. I used it for about a year and then sold it.

Another alternative would be a Raspberry Pi with a TNC hat, like the TNC Pi. You could run Xastir, which is a map-based APRS client, on the Pi. Unfortunately, the manufacturer of the TNC Pi has ceased production. And, Xastir doesn't have the navigation features you may want.

I was thinking along that lines. where I connect via either wifi or bluetooth.
For internet connectivity.

An Arduino doesn't have enough computing power for something like that. A Raspberry Pi would, with a GPS module. Or use an Android device, which would have options.
