Winter Survival Kit

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Winter Survival Kit app can be as critical as a physical winter survival kit if you find yourself stuck or stranded in severe winter weather conditions. This app will help you find your current location, call 911, notify your friends and family, calculate how long you can run your engine to keep warm and stay safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.
You can use the Winter Survival Kit app to store important phone and policy numbers for insurance or roadside assistance. You also can designate emergency contacts you want to alert when you become stranded.
If you become stranded, the Winter Survival Kit app will help you determine your geographic location and contact emergency services. The app's "gas calculator" will help you estimate how long you can run your engine on your remaining fuel.
Winter Survival Kit will alert you every 30 minutes to remind you to periodically turn off your engine and to check your exhaust pipe for snow buildup. These alerts are critical in helping you avoid deadly carbon monoxide poisoning.
Winter Survival Kit also provides NDSU Extension Service information on how to put together a physical winter survival kit and prepare your vehicle for winter driving, and how to stay safe when stranded in a winter storm.
What's New in Version 2.2
Fixed the information feeds
Winter Survival Kit
This application is about as basic as you can get with a bare bones template that provides information you should know when stranded in the winter. The information provided whether to help yourself or others when stuck in a vehicle is on point. The additional GPS coordinates to provide location awareness is a plus but there are questions of whether it works correctly so users might not want to rely solely on this application. Still, the app if nothing else serves a a handy guide.
Could be useful
I heard about this app on MSNBC today while watching the blizzard updates. I downloaded this as my husband will be driving from Ohio to Oklahoma in a few days. I checked out the features to see how it worked. But now it thinks I'm stranded. I keep getting alerts that j need to shut off my car. I don't see how I tell the app that I'm no longer stranded. Can you help?
Needs lots of work
After set up, the app locks up. Great idea, wouldn't help in an emergency.
