Consider using a program called DMAPPER to do live tracking.
I am with Silver Star Search and Rescue, of Washougal, WA. We have been using a program called DMAPPER to do live APRS tracking. We use Yaesu ham ht's to track our teams with. DMAPPER only costs $40.00, and is well worth the cost. Our trackers only have to reach back to our SAR Base, but if they hit a digipeater, you can follow them on APRS.FI. The program can update their position and keeps track on if the team is moving, when the last time heard from was, or if they have been sitting too long. This is all automatic with no direct actions from the team members. Saves time and saves not having to verbally relay coordinates, which can lead to mistakes. Go to www.roadfacts.com for more info.
We currently support any APRS-style receiver that uses NMEA data. For details, see: https://tnp.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/172139
