Even with the best preparation, skills and behavior, sometimes accidents happen. If they do, BackcountrySOS is a simple-to-use smartphone app that allows you to quickly get your status and location information to emergency personnel.
- Low power. It will only use your phone's GPS for the brief period where it fetches your location.
- High contrast. The app is easy to read in bright sunlight, and won't kill your vision at night.
- No setup. You don't need to setup an account or login. If it's on your phone, the app is ready to use when you need it.
- Data efficient. The app works as long as you have enough signal to squeeze out a text message. It will work in places where you can't get data access or make a voice call.
