Are you a sports enthusiast that spends long time alone? Are you a parent concerned about where your child is at a specific time of the day? Do you want to let your significant others know where you are? SafeGPS is an application that allows you to tell your “contacts” the GPS coordinates where you are.
The application can be set to send a message at a specific time of the day; at a specific interval if you have not moved. We are both sports enthusiast that spend a lot of time hiking, cycling and basically spending a lot of time alone…and, parents concerned about our children well being.
SafeGPS is our solution!
Some caveats however, there are some inherent limitations with this type of application: The GPS coordinates accuracy is not exact and limited by your wireless device capabilities and space based Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites; in order to deliver a message there has to be an active data connection, SMS Gateway connectivity and the carrier capability to deliver the message to the mobile device you selected; and, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. It is recommended the iPhone battery is fully charged.
