Interesting app for android phones CRADAR (Crash Radar)

Detects a crash/fall/drop etc., and sends a text msg to a contact number you designate with Lon/Lat and a link to the location on Google Maps.

You can customize the message and the delay time before the msg is sent, allowing you to cancel the msg if you inadvertently activate the app.

There is a similar app for @pple called BuddyGuard.

That's almost enough to make me want to get a smart phone.

Thanks Dave! That is amazing and FREE?!!!

I often take rides by myself into some fairly remote areas - and have resisted buying a SPOT.

Re: Interesting app for android phones CRADAR (Crash Radar)

Wouldn't trust an android/google app for that. Twice its had me in the wrong city and once it sent me to China. 9 out of 10 times it may be fine but when you need it there's a chance of sending help the wrong way. But its free and Blonde-star costs .

Mine will occasionally show me in the wrong location using the location services, but it's dead on to within 6 meters using the GPS.
I agree that since 2.3 stand alone GPS function outdoors is better than it used to be. I believe its the Google location service that moves my company to another town.

On 2.2 I tried to use the google service and gps to navigate from the Double Tree to the post office walking and it almost did it. I had to ask someone what street I was coming up on LOL It may be a Fascinate thing too.
