Product line includes the TinyTrak 3 and 4, flexible embedded controllers that can do just about anything APRS-related, depending upon the firmware you load into them. The TT4 can even have a keyboard and display integrated with it. All for less than a Kantronics KPC-3Plus TNC.
Why would you buy a KPC-3 or other TNC, then? Because they are more capable as purchased. That is, the typical TNC implements digipeating, tracking, KISS mode, mailbox, etc., when you power it up, while the TT4 requires you to download and install the proper program for the function you decide to use it for.
