When you need help emergency services can find your location using phone network masts; the accuracy of that location depends on the distance between masts. Cities have many masts close together, which works quite well. There are fewer masts much further apart in the mountains, which reduces accuracy. Using the phone network to find you in the mountains could mean that help takes longer to get to you.
SnoWhere can help by creating a Mail or SMS with your precise GPS location to send to your Snow SOS contact to ask for help. You can add details about what has happened before the message is sent.
Right Spot Feedback.
Confirm you’re in the right place.
SnoWhere can play a sound on a friend’s iPhone™ to help confirm that you’ve found the right spot.
Found Friend Marking.
Find multiple friends faster.
You can mark friends already found, so you don’t waste search time finding their iPhone™ to turn SnoWhere off.
Fast Team Searching.
It’s quicker to search together.
Friends can search together. SnoWhere automatically links searching iPhones, showing you where other searchers are and any friends they have found. This helps you cover a wider area more quickly, because shorter search time helps save lives.
