Ideal for athletes, Signal Flare automatically sends a text message containing your current location to selected contacts at periodic distances. These text messages can help your contacts track your progress and predict when you will arrive at a destination, such as a race viewing area or the finish line. It can also be used to keep contacts up to date on your location during a workout.
You choose who will receive text messages from your phone's contact list. Using Settings, you can configure the distance you travel between text messages and whether to set distances in miles or kilometers.
The text message will contain your current latitude and longitude in a format that can be displayed in the Google Maps website or application. It will also contain your street address and direction of travel. Getting the street address requires a data connection, so it may not be available in all locations.
A message can also be sent to your selected contacts whenever you want by pressing the "Signal Flare" button. Along with your current location and address you can include a short message.
The accuracy of locations and distances depends on the GPS hardware of your phone.
