I wonder if I have misunderstand something...

Igate tab in client jpskmail 1.5.8 says "connected to finland.aprs2.net"
and in the igate data window I see for example:

21:16 - OH6ECF/P>PSKAPR,TCPIP*:6232.61N/02720.06E.000/000/

Now, should I be able to see location of OH6ECF/P (myself:) over internet
with browser, for example in aprs.fi? Because I can not. (But mapping works
locally in xastir)
Also jpskmail/xastir do receive and show stations from igate (they appear
on the xastir map).

I use andpskmail on local mobile, send location on 10m band to home.

BTW John, VK2ETA thanks for AndPskmail! I modified code a little for local
purposes, now it sends position beacons like every 3 or 5 minutes. You
asked comments on this mailing lists so:
-It works fine! No crashes. I use android 2.2 with bluetooth connection and
cheap zte-blade whithout sim.
-somekind of pre-tone before tx would be good with vox. Some rigs start
transmitting slowly and txid wont work. My ugly solution:I just doubled
txid-lines on aprs-beacon code... so it sents id twice.
