Actually, APRS or Automatic Packet Reporting System was intended as a generalized messaging system and predates common use of GPS receivers. Early use of APRS was typically keyboard to keyboard chatting and message server (bulletin board) access. APRS message servers were common on the HF bands in the past and some may still exist today. Though a number of different messaging schemes are defined in the APRS specifications, other than the GPS position reporting, few have had any interest shown. I’m guessing it was the introduction of PSK31 and other digital modes that distracted attention away from non position reporting use.
