[amsat-bb] Advise on APRS sw

I have a request that is sort-of off topic with this list - please excuse.

I have run win APRS for several years to track vessels on water.  But 
the graphics are all land-based for road travel and show no marine 
details.  Also, they are kind of crude graphics for today's 
standards.  For road travel I obtained an old Delorme Street Atlas 
program that supported APRS and although the program details are 
seriously out of date it is still usable.  But this is only useful 
for land travel.

So my question is whether there is an APRS program that easily 
imports map files and overlays mobile tracks?  Ideally, I could 
import any of the newer digital marine charts as a map.  There are 
map programs that allow laying out navigation and trace onto the map 
display, but the way-points need to be manually input.  I need an 
APRS program that runs a track automatically from an APRS beaconing station.
